INSIDE FORKLIFTACTION.COM

We would like to extend our sympathies to the victims of Hurricane Katrina. During this trying time for our American friends, it is good to know that our industry members are contributing to the relief efforts in New Orleans. This week, our lead story is on the materials handling companies who have generously given cash and equipment donations to help the city recover.

On the homefront, a recent update of our web page coding has resulted in our faster-loading website. All of our web pages, including the Marketplace pages, load up to six times faster than before. Email us to tell us what you think about our faster loading site.
