Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
Britain has moved a step closer to its divorce from Europe with Prime Minister Theresa May winning the backing of her senior ministers for a draft European Union Brexit deal.
Next, she will have to get the measures through Parliament.
More than two years after the United Kingdom voted in a referendum to leave the EU, the country is still grappling with the mechanics of a separation - and the materials handling sector still has no certainty about its implications. British exporters and European manufacturers will all be affected - they just don't know how.
So, many in the industry will be watching the next round of discussions very closely as they plan their own strategies.

"I saw the aftermath of an accident some years ago where a reach truck had tipped over forwards with the mast at around 6 metres, after the load guard at the top of the forks had struck a refrigeration unit on the ceiling of a cold store, due to the operator reversing back too far from a stack before stopping to lower the forks.".
