Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
Three members of the Forkliftaction team have just returned from IMHX in Birmingham.
The timing of the show was interesting - just weeks ahead of the latest Brexit deadline, and as the global forklift market appears to be running out of steam after a period of strong growth.
We spoke to dozens of manufacturers, and this week's newsletter is devoted to some of those interviews. Our IMHX coverage will continue next week, and we will also feature an extensive article covering the Brexit situation.

"aside from what everyone else has said all i can say is you get what you pay for ;o) cheaper is not better in almost every case on any brand. ".

"Ok firstly, we dont have forklift "licences" in the UK, they are cerificates of training, the layout of all certificates is broadly the same but obviously different training organisations have slightly different formats & logo's. If you do not have your actual certificate and was trained by Linde you should be able to get a duplicate cerificate from them, they may charge a small admin fee for this. ".
