You might notice a few changes in your newsletter and on our website. That’s because we updated the format last week to make it even easier to read – and to search our news.

Besides a generally ‘cleaner’ and less cluttered design, we have localised your content so that you clearly see the news, events, machine offers, job opportunities and relevant ads in your area first.

Perhaps the most useful update is the easier searching which includes links to recent mentions of companies or topics covered in each story. The new search capability gives you direct access to more than 20 years of industry insight on our portal.

To read more about these changes, see our marketing manager's blog here – and we hope you find our news even more useful.

We’d like to give a shout-out to the unsung heroes in materials handling. Those unassuming folks who pull off great things, or go out of their way to be helpful. Or someone who deserves a ‘hell yeah’ for a company milestone.

This week on the website we are giving a shout-out to some of our extra helpful forum technicians!

Let us know if there is someone at work who deserves a pat on the back! Or add #ForkliftactionShoutOut to your Twitter or LinkedIn posts.
