Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
No-one likes - or benefits from - a trade war. So major forklift manufacturers will be closely watching the escalation of tensions between the US and the EU.
US President Donald Trump has threatened to impose a 20% tariff on US imports of vehicles assembled in the European Union - and there's no doubt that forklifts will be lumped in at some stage.
The US has already targeted forklift imports from China - a move widely criticised, including by American forklift manufacturers.
Materials handling is one of the most diverse industries, with strong manufacturers in Europe, the US and Asia all competing in a buoyant market which seems to have space for all. Any attempts to disrupt the free flow of products would have broad implications for everyone.
Let's hope we don't see further escalations.

"I am needing some help locating reliable service for Goodsense forklifts. We have purchased directly from China but the service is slacking. Does anyone have any suggestions. Contact can be located either in the USA or Central America.".

"Does anyone know who to contact or where to go to get good used late model equipment? It seems in our area these units are not readily available. I know there are companies that deal in lease returns, etc. but we cant seem to locate any information on them. We have customers that are currently looking for this type of equipment but cant provide it to them due to the lack of late model units.".
Avizamist, United States
"Can anyone tell me if fork creep is a fail in the U.K.s Lolar test? I have recently replaced my aging forklift with a slightly lesser aged one but the forks do drop considerably over time. Last time measured it was about 80mm in an hour. It was sold to me with a new Lolar certificate and this has been happening since it was bought.".
