INSIDE FORKLIFTACTION.COM

2019 was a big year for Forkliftaction Media, with a new website and newsletter design, trips to various trade shows around the world and ongoing coverage of some of the most dramatic materials handling developments in recent times.
Our newsletters have covered mergers and acquisitions, dealer expansions, new models and technology innovations, changing trading conditions and significant geopolitical shifts.
And, at the heart of it all, we have tracked the people behind the industry, the appointments and promotions, the efforts to attract new talent, awards, recognition of achievements and retirements, and we have mourned the loss of some great industry veterans.
As we look forward to 2020, we wish everyone in our community of industry professionals all the best for the year ahead. And rest assured we will continue to keep an eye on developments around the world.
Happy New Year from all at Forkliftaction Media.
