Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
It's been a dramatic week on the global economic front, with the Italian crisis taking its toll on international bourses, oil prices continuing to rise and the persistent uncertainty over Brexit.
But despite all of that, the OECD has released an upbeat set of projections in its latest assessment of the global economy, anticipating growth of 3.8% for this year, rising to 3.9% next year.
However, the Paris-based organisation warns that risks are looming and growth is increasingly reliant on support from governments.
For materials handling, this means more hoping for the best, but planning for the worst.

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 in an upcoming feature report and will examine issues such as industry uptake, technological advances, customer needs, market trends and more.

Don’t miss this insight into the rapidly evolving world of Fleet and Asset Management.
