Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
People outside the materials handling industry are often surprised that there's a weekly newsletter devoted to the sector. They are even more surprised that we manage to find enough news to fill it.
If we look at this week's edition, we see the diversity of coverage which allows us to keep readers informed and, sometimes, entertained.
This week, we look at the LogiMAT trade show and cover dozens of new products and services unveiled in Stuttgart. We also report on another global acquisition and a patent dispute which pits two giant manufacturers against each other.
There's also a dealer appointment and some coverage of awards and recognition. And there's even an item for sports lovers as we look at some of the deals behind this year's Formula One season.
That's how we fill 50 newsletters each year!
