We've put together a fun (and free) little activity book for our littlest forklift lovers!

Just a few pages to help entertain the kids and to hopefully teach them something about materials handling along the way...

We hope they enjoy it.

Inside Forkliftaction
This week, we report that equipment rental is tipped to fall by 10% in Europe this year, based on market analysis just released.
The slump comes after a 4% rise last year, and is attributed largely to the impact of COVID-19.
While falling rental rates are hurting the businesses directly involved, the implications are far broader. As we regularly report, hire companies represent a significant market for equipment, with billions of dollars/Euros of stock and a healthy flow of orders for the major manufacturers. Falling demand will not only mean idle fleets, but also a reluctance to continue to invest in inventory - and this will hurt the forklift makers already impacted by falling sales.
But end-users are winners in the short term, with rental costs likely to fall as rental businesses seek to keep equipment turning over.
