SPECIAL FEATURE
Forklifts and Global Warming

Climate change is a hot topic. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, established by the World Meteorological Organisation and the United Nations Environment Program in 1988, met in Bangkok, Thailand, this week to discuss and accept one of its working groups’ reports, titled Mitigation of Climate Change. According to an industry source, the report’s findings say humanity has until 2020 to prevent the earth’s climate from collapsing. That is why any contribution from forklift manufacturers to reduce greenhouse gases counts.  Read more

Jungheinrich chairman forecasts market growth
HAMBURG, Germany

The world materials handling trucks market is expected to grow 6.4 per cent from 855,000 units in 2006 to 910,000 units this year, Jungheinrich AG board of management chairman Wolfgang Kiel says.

Kiel made the comment at a Hamburg press conference about the company's balance sheet.

"We anticipate that the business trend will continue to be positive in 2007," he said.

For the first two months of 2007, Jungheinrich received orders to the value of EUR319 million (USD433.8 million), up 15 per cent from 2006's EUR277 million (USD376.7 million). Sales at the end of February 2007 totalled EUR288 million (USD391.6 million), up 23 per cent from 2006's EUR 234 million (USD318.2 million).

Jungheinrich forecast a "significant rise" in incoming orders and sales for fiscal 2007.

Toyota’s sponsored question again yields kudos
IRVINE, CA, United States

Toyota Material Handling USA Inc (TMHU) said its forklifts again ranked first in quality and value on the basis of a sponsored question in an independent Reed Research Group survey.

In a statement, Shankar Basu, president and CEO of Irvine-based TMHU, said: “This type of recognition underscores the focus Toyota has always put on quality.”

The survey consolidated results anonymously on the basis of input from October 3 to October 27 from 435 eligible industry respondents who are qualified buyers of materials handling equipment, products, technologies and services.

Rhonda McGee, Reed director of research, said: “Toyota was one of two” companies sponsoring proprietary questions as part of the survey.  TMHU was the only firm in the forklift manufacturing category with a sponsored question.

Responses to sponsored questions in similar 2005 and 2004 Reed surveys also named TMHU as number one in the forklift perception categories for quality and value (Forkliftaction.com News #254).

The research was conducted under the auspices of Reed Business Information US, of Boston, Massachusetts, USA, a division of Reed Elsevier Group plc and publisher of Modern Materials Handling magazine. An unaffiliated firm, Research Results Inc, of Fitchburg, Massachusetts, USA, independently tabulated the results.

A majority of the forklifts TMHU sells in the United States are manufactured at Toyota Industrial Equipment Manufacturing’s Columbus, Indiana, plant. Globally in 2006, Toyota’s materials handling business had its best year, selling more than 190,000 units.

Hewitt to boost German forklift sales
RICHMOND, VA, United States

Jungheinrich Lift Truck Corp is partnering with Hewitt Équipment Limitée to expand its presence in the Canadian forklift market.

As part of the Jungheinrich-Hewitt partnership, Montréal-headquartered Hewitt has established a new warehouse solutions group to focus on the narrow-aisle and warehouse forklift markets. The group will supply integrated solutions in Québec through Hewitt, and Hewitt subsidiary Hewitt Material Handling, in Ontario.

Hewitt vice president of materials handling Rick Leroux said the new group would distribute Jungheinrich’s class 1, 2 and 3 forklifts, other brand forklifts and an array of racking systems and warehouse accessories.

“Hewitt will be the one-stop supplier for highly productive, energy and space efficient warehouse materials handling solutions,” he said.

Established in 1952, Hewitt operates 14 branches in Ontario and Québec from its Montréal headquarters. Hewitt owns the subsidiaries Hewitt Material Handling, Atlantic Tractor and Equipment Ltd, Hewitt Rental Inc and Montréal Hydraulique Inc.

Montréal Hydraulique, an authorised Jungheinrich forklift dealer, was acquired by Hewitt in 2004.

Kalmar receives St Petersburg order
STOCKHOLM, Sweden

Kalmar forklifts will replace older equipment for handling steel, aluminium and containers at JSC Sea Port of St Petersburg, Russia.

The 12 forklifts, ranging from 10 to 32 tonne capacities, are part of a 24-machine order by the Russian terminal operator.

JSC Sea Port currently uses 80 Kalmar machines, including forklifts with capacities up to 42 tonnes, reach stackers and terminal tractors, for daily handling duties. It handled 11.8 million tonnes of cargo, comprising metals, coal, chemical, timber and containers, in 2006.

Kalmar Russia managing director Ekso Pystynen said the Russian market was important for Kalmar.

“The Port of St Petersburg is the largest in northwest Russia and a strategic gateway for the country's trade with Western Europe,” Pystynen said.

The order, to be delivered from May to September 2007, includes eight TRX182 terminal tractors, three reach stackers and one empty container handler.

Bauma busy for materials handling booths
MUNICH, Germany

Construction expo Bauma 2007 achieved a new attendance record with 500,000 people visiting the show at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre last week.

That was an increase of about 20 per cent from the last show (2004:416,000).  

About 160,000 or 35 per cent of visitors to the International Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Materials Machinery, Mining Machines, Construction Vehicles and Construction Equipment (Bauma), from April 23 to April 29, were from 189 countries outside Germany.

Organiser Messe München’s chairman Manfred Wutzlhofer said the global boom in construction, especially in Asia, Latin America and Africa, contributed to the show’s success.

Forklift parts supplier TVH Group marketing manager Lieven Pauwels said TVH exhibited forklift parts, scrubber and sweeper parts, mini excavator parts, and skidsteer loader parts, but primarily aerial platform parts.

“[Visitor response] was very positive because there aren’t many alternative sources for aerial platform parts. Many international visitors who were professionals came and Germans, especially during the weekend.”

Pauwels said there were few materials handling exhibitors but the number was increasing with each Bauma exhibition.

“The booths from materials handling exhibitors were quite busy,” he said.

Linde Material Handling GmbH marketing services manager Manfred Höhn said Bauma was a success for Linde because the company “topped the number of customer contacts” from Bauma 2004.

Guangxi Liugong Machinery Co Ltd, which manufactures construction equipment and Liugong forklifts, also exhibited. The company’s deputy general manager for overseas business, Huang Zhaohua, said Bauma was influential globally.

“We are pleased that all the representatives and customers we invited have come along. We also had [several] unexpected guests from south-east Asia and South America.

“This shows Bauma is not only influential in Asia but in the whole world,” he said.

Other materials handling exhibitors included Ausa, Cukurova, Hubtex, Jungheinrich, Kaup, Hiab, Hinowa, Manitou, Palfinger, Still, Toyota and Zeppelin.

A high number of overseas visitors to Bauma 2007 came from Australia, Canada, China, India, Japan, Korea, Mexico, South Africa, south-east Asia and the US.

Messe München provided 180,000 square metres of hall space and 360,000 square metres of outdoor exhibition space for its 3,041 exhibitors. The total exhibitor number consisted of 1,390 German exhibitors and 1,651 overseas exhibitors. The strongest exhibitor contingents came from Germany, Italy and Great Britain.

Rocla joins RFID study
JÄRVENPÄÄ, Finland

Rocla Oyj and the Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT) have developed a forklift that automatically identifies its load using RFID.

Data from the load is automatically transferred to warehouse management systems, reducing errors in goods collection, Esmerk Finnish News reported.

An RFID pilot forklift is being tested at hazardous waste treatment services provider Ekokem’s Riihimäki plant.

Forklift likely accessory in 9,000 phone heist
MIAMI, FL, United States

A businessman who found his warehouse’s security guard asleep in his car on Monday morning thinks robbers used a forklift to steal 9,000 mobile phones.

Miami Herald reported Daniel Kaufman had hired a 24-hour security firm and installed digital surveillance cameras and an alarm system to protect his mobile phone and parts distribution business.

Despite those measures, Kaufman arrived at his Deerfield Beach warehouse to find a three foot by three foot (0.914 metre by 0.914 metre) hole in a metal bay door at the rear and USD1.5 million in mobile phones missing.

He guessed a forklift was used to carry the boxes of mobile phones out through the bay door opening.

A USD50,000 reward is offered for information leading to the robbers’ arrest. Call CrimeStoppers at +1 954 493 TIPS.

Business buzz

Opportunity knocks
BRISBANE, Queensland, Australia

The Queensland Government is establishing a sister state agreement with the forklift-friendly Chinese province of Guangdong.
Premier Peter Beattie hoped the Friendship Province Agreement would open trade and investment opportunities for Queensland businesses.
He said a trade office was set up in the capital, Guangzhou, last month to help businesses get a foothold in the lucrative Pearl River Delta region, which is home to 500 million consumers.
Forkliftaction.com News reported in April 2006 that Guangzhou was the hub of China’s forklift industry (Forkliftaction.com News #257).

Irish migration to double
Monaghan, Ireland

Ireland-based manufacturer Combilift will double exports to Australia during the next two years.
Importer of the Irish Combilift and Aisle-Master forklifts, Combilift Australia, plans to lift distribution from 80 to 160 trucks a year by December 2008.
“This is a very exciting time for Combilift Australia,” said imports manager Alicia Whiffen. “We have seen significant growth over the past years and it is set to continue.”
Combilift Australia intends to appoint a business development executive to assist with developing new markets in light of the import influx. It may also be necessary to move to a larger warehouse, Whiffen said.
In The Irish Times this week, Combilift managing director Martin McVicar compared the Australian and the UK markets for Aisle-Master forklifts.
Both have several “densely populated urban centres and land is expensive”, he said.

Flexilift makes inroads
DANDENONG, Victoria, Australia

Flexilift Australia made inroads into the Perth and Papua New Guinea markets last week, securing footholds in both.
Flexilift, with offices in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney, has entered into an agreement with Total Forklift Services, in Cannington, Perth, to offer sales and service support to its West Australian customers.
The company also sold its first Narrow Aisle forklift in Papua New Guinea, to a warehouse in Port Moresby.
“[Management found] it was more viable to revamp the warehouse to narrower, two-metre aisles than to relocate or extend the warehouse,” a Flexilift spokeswoman said.
“We’re not actually an export company but [the PNG company] sourced us and decided our Narrow Aisle forklift was the one to do the job.”

Assessor loses licence
MELBOURNE, Victoria, Australia

A Geelong man has had to surrender his forklift assessor’s licence after pleading guilty to 16 workplace health and safety charges.
A Melbourne magistrate heard Emidio Bocchetti, 51, signed certificates of competency for forklift operators without conducting written or practical tests.
The offences occurred in May 2005 while Bocchetti was working for licence training and testing business Civic Workplace Training, at Footscray.
He was fined $9,000 and ordered to pay costs of $1,692.
His conviction follows that of another Civic Workplace Training employee in February. A third Civic employee is yet to face court.
WorkSafe Victoria’s executive director John Merritt said the convictions should be a warning to assessors and applicants.
“You must play by the rules or risk putting yourself or others at risk of death or serious injury,” he said.

Save time and money
BRISBANE, Queensland, Australia

Queensland small business operators can find out about the latest time and money savers at the Information, Communication & Technology Factor Conference at the Brisbane Convention Centre on July 18.
“Many small-to-medium enterprises don’t think they’re big enough to invest in technology, particularly information and communications technologies,” state development minister John Mickel said.
“But almost every business has to address issues such as staffing and training, communicating with customers and suppliers, building new markets and improving productivity.
“Most SMEs would be surprised to learn just what technologies are available for them, particularly tailored to their needs and those of their industry.”
