News Edition #987 - 13 August 2020

We report this week on a dealer acquisition and a dealer appointment, reflecting ongoing healthy activity in forklift retailing in the United States.
Co-incidentally, this newsletter also includes coverage of a new logistics consulting operation by a major dealer group.
So, despite some market contraction, things are still happening at the pointy end - where buyers and sellers meet.
It's also encouraging to report that one manufacturer is actually doing better at the moment than at the same time last year, thanks largely to the efforts of dealers - in one of the countries most affected by COVID-19. Which company and what country? You'll have to read on to find out.
