Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
It's a busy time of the year for trade shows and exhibitions, with a few recently ended and one currently under way - IFAT 2018, the trade fair dedicated to environmental technologies, in Germany.
Forkliftaction News last week visited the inaugural megaTRANS show in Melbourne, Australia, which is covered in the Australian edition of this newsletter. Global readers interested in finding out more can check out our report here.
Meanwhile, our team which recently visited CeMAT in Hannover have just loaded their images from the event, and you can find them here.
Also available is another Gallery from the MODEX show in Atlanta, Georgia in April, which you can access here.

The world of materials handling has changed significantly since Forkliftaction’s last feature report on asset management in 2013. The rise of 3PL, the cloud and the internet of things to name just a few, have changed the landscape of data collection and information management, yet it is believed that less than 20% of the 1 million forklifts in the US use telematics.

Forkliftaction News will again delve into the global telematics market and issues such as industry uptake, technological advances, customer needs, market trends and more.

"We don't get many trouble shooting problems as such. Mainly parts availability, battery connectors and key switches, you would expect these to be a standard items. We waited over a week. We had to send a motor away just to have a set of brushes replaced, because it needed to be resealed and tested. It looked like a standard brush gear guard without any vents. You can only imagine how long we waited for this back.".
