Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
While the materials handling world has largely been affected less than other industries by global economic ups and downs, recent developments, like US tariff changes and the looming impact of Brexit, are causing some concern.
So, a lot of senior executives at forklift companies will be eagerly awaiting the outcome of this week's G-20 meeting between US President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jin Ping. In fact, many pundits expect that the meeting could be a watershed that could impact the global economy for some time to come.
Let's hope that a calm, considered approach prevails and that we'll have some good news to report next week.
