The countdown is on for next year's Global Lifting Awareness Day on 8 July, after a successful virtual celebration of the lifting industry this year.
While our name may suggest that we only cover machines which lift pallets in warehouses, Forkliftaction focuses on the entire gamut of materials handling, and cranes and lifting equipment play a crucial role.
Every week, we include news of new products, fleet expansions and the names and faces behind the lifting industry.
We salute all those who keep materials moving and acknowledge the significant role of cranes in the supply chain - and the need to operate them safely.
