They say when the going gets tough, the tough get going. And nowhere is that truer than for materials handling.
Despite the public health and economic crisis gripping the world, we are still able to report on new models, on record orders and dealership appointments. So, while things are far from normal, for many in the forklift business, it's almost business as usual.
And, pleasingly, not only are the key players taking care of their own business, but we are also hearing more and more reports of manufacturers and dealers reaching out with offers of assistance to their local communities. If readers know of any such initiatives, please share them in this thread in our Online Forums.
