News Edition #1000 - 12 November 2020
This copy is for Preview, Australia
Welcome to our 1,000th newsletter.
We've certainly come a long way since our first text-based email in July 2000. That edition featured three news stories - a fraction of the content delivered to your inbox each week.
In fact, since that first email, we have shared more than 20,000 articles and 40,000 images with you - a mix of news stories, features, blogs and announcements - and every one of those is still accessible in our online archive.
I'd like to thank all those who have contributed to this immense repository of materials handling insight - and all those who have used our information and continue to support Forkliftaction.
Looking forward to the next 1,000 newsletters...
