Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
As this hits inboxes, our team is enjoying the final days of CeMAT in Hannover. Those at the show can probably still catch up with our colleagues by visiting our booth - Hall 26, Stand H07.
We will include a full report on the show next week. But first, we wrap up our main coverage of the recent MODEX show in Atlanta with some highlights from the exhibition floor. Last week, we looked at the flood of new automation solutions. This week, we examine the rise of battery-powered equipment and some of the innovative power sources finding their way into forklifts around the world.
