Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
As we head towards the end of the year, attention is starting to swing to economic conditions for 2019.
The International Monetary Fund is forecasting respectable global growth of 3.7% next year, but there are concerns that the world's two largest economies, the United States and China, are slowing.
With memories of the Global Financial Crisis still fresh, it's hard to believe that many economies are in the longest growth phase for some time and we constantly read about record sales and growing orders from the major materials handling manufacturers.
Of course, there are some worries at the moment - mostly due to political tensions.
We'll continue to keep you informed with another newsletter next week, before our year-end break. We'll then return on January 3, 2019.

"In relation to the diesel market. We have the next tier engine due and rumours are that they will be much more expensive so customers have a choice. Do nothing and keep their old forklift or change to a cleaner version which is either diesel or gas. this might be a culture shock to some customers. I don’t think Mitsubishi will take on another brand. They still have not figured out what to do with the Uni Carriers since they took them over. ".

"I have a customer that is on their third fleet of Toyota LPG warehouse and yard forklifts (model 8FGCU25) (4Y ECS engines), same engines, same fuel systems throughout all fleets. The latest fleet, years 2015 and 2016 units, with an average of 5,000 hours use are beginning to have starting problems only on Monday mornings (this is in SoCal, so it ain't that cold, approx low of 40 degrees in the plant).".
