Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
What a year it has been! We've had major trade shows in Europe, the United States and around the world. There have been ongoing political challenges, including a trade war between the United States and China and the confusion surrounding Brexit. We've survived natural disasters in which the materials handling sector rallied to the support of the communities around them. And we've seen a steady stream of innovation as the market continues to grow, despite the odds.
We're taking a brief break to refresh and recharge after the challenges and opportunities of 2018 and will return on 3 January 2019 for our Year in Review edition.
In the meanwhile, all of us at Forkliftaction would like to wish readers, contributors and advertisers all the best for the festive season.
Merry Christmas and a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
