If there’s a theme to this week’s newsletter, it must be growth. Read about Jungheinrich’s double-digit growth, Crepa’s take-over of Mageon and Kalmar’s new president who is set to build on the achievements of his predecessor. At the same time, it’s great to see that the forklift industry has a big heart and continues to support charities. And that human element is reflected, with sadness, in our coverage of the passing of a UK industry achiever who always had time for others.

NEWS STORIES
Jungheinrich announces double-digit growth
HAMBURG, Germany

Jungheinrich AG will pour huge investments into the “markets of the future” – Eastern Europe and Asia - the Hamburg-based manufacturer says in a press statement boasting its recent double-digit growth.

For the first four months of 2007, the company’s net sales grew 21% from EUR505 million (USD671.4 million) last year to EUR612 million (USD813.7 million). Incoming orders rose 10%, from EUR610 million (USD811.0 million) to EUR659 million (USD8761 million).

Hans-Georg Frey, board of management chairman, says the company is confident of growth continuing for fiscal 2007.

“Incoming orders could rise to about EUR1.95 billion (USD2.59 billion). We expect net sales to total over EUR1.9 billion (USD2.53 billion), which represents 9% growth.”

Jungheinrich predicts the global forklift market to grow 6% to 910,000 trucks this year. Russia and China are expected to be the main drivers of the growth.

“Booming markets in Eastern Europe, with Russia leading the way, and in Asia, with China as the foremost engine, will drive the growth. [We] are well positioned in those regions with proprietary sales companies and will invest heavily in these markets of the future,” the statement says.

When contacted by Forkliftaction.com News, Jungheinrich’s corporate communications head, Markus Piazza, declined to elaborate on the investment plans for the growth markets.

The company presented a draft resolution to increase shareholder dividends by EUR0.03 (USD0.04) to EUR0.48 (USD0.64) per ordinary share and to EUR0.54 (USD0.72) per preferred share at its annual general meeting last Tuesday.

Kalmar president steps down
STOCKHOLM, Sweden

Pekka Vauramo has been appointed to replace Kalmar Industries president Christer Granskog when he retires on October 1.

Vauramo, 50, is the president of the global underground hard rock mining division at Sandvik Mining and Construction. He is also the managing director of Finland-based Sandvik Mining and Construction Oy.

Granskog, 59, will leave Kalmar by the end of 2007, after overseeing the transition.

Mikael Mäkinen, president of Kalmar’s parent company Cargotec, praises Granskog's contribution to Kalmar’s current successes.

“Kalmar has been successfully transformed from a manufacturing company into a global customer- and services-oriented company with a strong assembly set-up.
Through several acquisitions, Kalmar has developed into a unified global business.”

Mäkinen also praised Vauramo as having a strong track record of growing profitability for a global business.

“Many of the challenges in the global scale and customer needs [at Sandvik] are similar to what we want to further develop within Kalmar. I am confident Pekka’s experience and skills will contribute markedly as we continue to build Kalmar into the undisputed market leader, providing the most productive solutions in order to help our customers respond to the increasing demands on cargo handling speed and efficiency”.

Vauramo, who has a Master's degree from the Helsinki University of Technology in Espoo, Finland, has worked at Sandvik since 1985. He has been based at the company's offices in Finland, Canada, China, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

Rotterdam wants to treble capacity
ROTTERDAM, Netherlands

Europe’s largest port, the Port of Rotterdam, plans to triple its container handling capacity by 2035 as current congestion at ports threatens to impede global economic growth.

Han Smits, CEO of Port of Rotterdam Authority, says container throughput at the port increased 4% in 2006 to 9.7 million TEUs but is rapidly accelerating, with a further 10% increase in the first quarter of 2007, compared to last year.

Smits adds that those ports able to handle more throughput “will profit most from the booming cargo flows”.

“Spatial planning procedures and the time needed to build infrastructure are more or less the same all over Europe,” he explains.

This year, Rotterdam plans to add 1.7 million TEUs to its current 10 million TEU capacity. Over the next five years, an extra 4.5 million TEUs will be added.

The port will get a further boost in 2013 when the first terminal at the Maasvlakte 2 reclamation project comes into operation.

“By 2035, this port expansion will increase Rotterdam’s capacity (by) some 20 million TEUs to some 35 million TEUs.”

Smits’ comments come as ports experience bottlenecks due to increase in global trade.

At the European Conference of Ministers of Transport (ECMT) last month, delegates from Europe and other countries convened in Sofia, Bulgaria to discuss a single issue for the first time: “Congestion: A Global Challenge”.

Ron Widdows, CEO of Sinagpore-based container shipping line APL, said transportation infrastructure cannot keep pace with growth in global trade. By 2010, he says global container volumes will double the level of 2000.

This congestion is having a significant impact, Widdows says, with only 46% of container vessels arriving at ports on time in the first quarter of 2007 - the lowest level on record. At Rotterdam, 35% arrived on time while in European ports overall, less than 30% of the vessels were on time.

Crepa is Dutch Caterpillar central
RIJSWIJK, Netherlands

Crepa BV has taken over forklift sales and service company Mageon to create a central organisation for Caterpillar forklifts in the Netherlands.

Crepa managing director Ad Kornet says June 1 marked the official transfer of Mageon's activities to Crepa.

“Mageon customers have been informed and the integration started off from that date,” he says.

Mageon, in Nieuwerkerk a/d IJssel, operates around 400 rental forklifts and has more than 1,000 service contracts for Caterpillar forklifts.

Kornet says Crepa decided to take over Mageon's activities to manage all Caterpillar forklifts in the Netherlands.

In 2005, Crepa became the Netherlands’ Caterpillar forklift importer. Mageon was left as a dealer and service provider for Caterpillar and remained a Manitou dealership and an importer of Carer forklifts.

“Crepa has a big rental fleet and is an experienced service provider. It is logical to integrate sales and service to guarantee one standard service to the market for Caterpillar forklifts.”

Kornet declined to disclose the sum Crepa paid for Mageon. He says Crepa will not continue Mageon's Manitou dealership, but will continue to import Carer forklifts which extend Crepa's product range to 25 ton electric forklifts.

Mageon's 28 employees bring Crepa's total employees to 235. The Mageon office and name will disappear by the end of September.

Crepa claims its rental forklift fleet of 4,500 units is the biggest in the Netherlands.

FLTA mourns lifetime award winner
ALTON, United Kingdom

The Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA) is mourning the death of its first Lifetime Achievement Award recipient.

The association has praised Gordon Davies, a former FLTA director and chairman of the Industrial Tyre Association, who died at the end of March, aged 77.

Davies was known for steering Watts Industrial Tyres (Watts)’ rise to prominence, the FLTA says in a statement.

He joined Watts, then Watts Tyre & Rubber, in 1963 as a sales representative and was appointed to the board as UK sales director in 1985 – a role he maintained until his retirement a decade later.
Watts chairman John Thurston says the company was starting from scratch when Davies joined.

“I believe Watts' first industrial tyre depot was actually a small shed on Gordon's drive. So it's true to say not only that Gordon was with the company from its inception, but that his wife, Shirley, was probably our first depot manager.”

FLTA chief executive David Ellison says Davies freely offered his time and effort to others and the entire industry held him in the highest esteem.

The FLTA, then known as Fork Truck Hire Association, presented the Lifetime Achievement Award to Davies in 1985 and granted him honorary lifetime membership.

Clark retiree wins pink pallet jack
LEXINGTON, KY, United States

A former Clark employee received a pink pallet jack on Tuesday after his name was drawn in a “Susan G Komen for the Cure” fundraiser.

Larry Rush, 65, was emotional when he gave his thank-you speech to employees at Clark’s Lexington headquarters.

“I cannot speak of Clark without getting emotional. Clark is so near and dear to my heart. I will hang onto the pallet jack for a while to just admire it and remind me of my fond memories at Clark before passing it on to a worthy charity organisation.

“When I visited Clark during their 90th anniversary and saw the pink pallet jack on display, I was so touched that Clark was reaching out to help with the fight against breast cancer in such a unique way. In honour of my daughter, and her battle, I knew I wanted to join their efforts, never realising that I would win the pallet jack.”  

Rush retired from Clark Material Handling Company in 2000 after 34 years of service. He started at Clark Equipment in Battle Creek, Missouri, in 1966 as a welder before being transferred to Clark’s Georgetown, Kentucky facility in 1983. He managed the welding department there and later became the plant manager.

Clark Material Handling Company's fundraising effort to support breast cancer advocacy organisation Susan G Komen involved giving pink pallet jacks to dealers and other donors (Forkliftaction.com News #309).

Dealers who donated at the pink ribbon level received a pink pallet jack each while all other donors went into a June 1 draw. Clark spokesperson Sherry Myers says the pink ribbon level equates to a minimum donation of USD1,000.

In total, the fundraising effort raised USD35,300.

Myers says while many Clark dealers donated to the cause, 19 donated at the pink ribbon level.

The Clark management team also won a pink pallet jack through their corporate donation. The team is donating the pallet jack to local Lexington food bank, God's Pantry. It will be used to move 13 million lbs (5.9 million kg) of food annually.

Raymond forklifts go from dock to stock
GREENE, NY, United States

Raymond Corp has introduced the 4100 and 4200 stand-up counterbalanced forklifts for tough dock applications.

Raymond spokesperson Jeff Leggett says the 4100, with a load capacity of 3,000lbs (1,361kg) to 3,500lbs (1,588kg), was suited for demanding dock applications while the 4200, with capacities ranging from 3,000lbs to 5,000lbs (1,361kg to 2,268kg), has an exclusive four-way switch that enables operators to use hydraulic attachments accurately.

“The three-wheel stand-up design on the 4100 and 4200 trucks [also] provides a smaller turning radius for greater manoeuvrability and easier handling in tight spaces,” says Leggett.

The 4100 and 4200 replace the Raymond DSS and Pacer forklifts. The Pacer was introduced in 1973 and reintroduced in 2000 with new models and features. The DSS was introduced in 1995 and reintroduced in 2000.

The main difference between the new and old forklifts is the AC drive motor. The 4100 has AC drive while the 4200 has AC drive and lift.

One pound “forklift” is no threat
BRISBANE, Australia

A potential father’s day gift for US dads may have the word “forklift” in its name, but forklift industry leaders don’t see it as competition.

The Forearm Forklift is a pair of adjustable 9 feet 4 inch (2.84 metre) straps made of “super strength webbing”, weighing 1lb (0.45kg) each, with a weight capacity of 600lbs (272kg). Placed over two people’s arms and underneath an object, the device promises to lower the centre of gravity and reduce back strain.

A video on www.forearmforklift.com explains how the lifting straps work and claims the lifting technique eliminates spinal bend and reduces lumbar mass strain.

Forkliftaction.com News showed the website to leading forklift manufacturers in Europe, US and Japan. The two US-based companies declined to comment.

Based on the photographs, Jan Kaulfuhs-Berger from Jungheinrich AG does not think it is a strong competitor for the Hamburg-based company.

“I do not think we have products we could compare with a forearm forklift. It seems to be more common in the business-to-consumer market than the business-to-business market.”

A Komatsu spokesperson says the Tokyo-based company also does not produce anything similar to the lifting straps.

“It is very unique and could be a means to carry things.

“[However] Komatsu’s products are for heavier articles and for different needs. Also, the forearm forklift is operated by two and the conventional forklift by one. If there’s a demanding application, an ordinary forklift should be employed.”

US product information magazine Industrial Equipment News awarded the lifting straps Best New Product of the Year 1999.

But that accolade still doesn’t make it a forklift!

Stiffer fines, tighter licensing for safety
Australia

Serious injuries and fatalities related to the use of forklift trucks continue to plague the industry despite efforts to provide free education, tighten up licensing requirements, and prosecute companies which breach the law.

According to statistics from the Australian Safety and Compensation Council (ASCC), in 2004–05, the fatality incidence rate in the Transport and Storage industry was 11.4 fatalities per 100,000 employees. This was over four times greater than the rate for Australia of 2.5 fatalities per 100,000 employees.

Forklifts, which are considered to be among the most dangerous of workplace equipment, must only be used by certified drivers and be used for purposes for which they were designed.

Over the next year, all states in Australia will introduce five-year renewable licences in place of the National Certificates of Competency (NCOC) which were, until recently, issued for life. Victoria will be the first to introduce the new standard in July this year, with Western Australia following in November. Queensland will roll out in January 2008 and New South Wales /South Australia in July 2008.

The new licences feature improved identification including photos, provision for a signature for the licence holder and tamper-proof security.

There is no specific licensing requirement for pedestrian forklifts, which are excluded from the National Licensing Standard.

NZ’s premier container port
AUCKLAND, New Zealand

The arrival of 10 new straddle carriers in May/June is a key component in Auckland seaport’s objective to become New Zealand ’s premier container port.  The new container handling machines are part of a long-term, NZ$150 million investment program in the port’s capacity and capability, which also underpins its container hubbing strategy. Hubbing is the concept of shipping cargo to a primary port, which is then transported to its final destination by sea, rail, or road.
The new straddle carriers will increase the Ports of Auckland’s straddle fleet to 46, ensuring it has the newest, largest and most efficient straddle fleet in the country.  

Fast Facts:
Ports of Auckland , as New Zealand ’s premier hub port:
•Has the largest straddle carrier fleet (46) of any New Zealand port.
•Has the most efficient straddle carrier fleet in the country – 28 are twin lift capable.
•Has the largest eco-friendly straddle carrier fleet in the country – 60% of the fleet are diesel-electric (rather than old technology diesel), using less fuel with lower emissions.
•Offers premium crane intensity - operating eight portainer cranes (four more than the next largest container port), with five of them new-generation and twin-lift capable.
•Has the capacity to handle increasing volumes, with Stage One of the 10-hectare Axis Fergusson container terminal reclamation extension nearing completion.
•Is an all-weather port.
•With dredging of the commercial shipping lane (to 12.5 metres at chart datum) complete (just awaiting survey), new generation larger ships will be able to call at almost any stage of the tide.
•Offers more services to more destinations than any other New Zealand port.
•Handles more than 60% of the Upper North Island and 37% of New Zealand’s container trade.
•Handles more refrigerated cargo than any other port in the Southern Hemisphere.

Shipping will reduce greenhouse gas
ADELAIDE, Australia

Government and business should focus on Australian coastal shipping as it is a viable transport option in the efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, damage and maintenance to national roads, road deaths and accidents.

Stuart Ballantyne, managing director of Queensland-based Sea Transport Corporation, speaking at the International Cargo Handling Coordination Association [ICHCA] luncheon in Adelaide, South Australia this week, said ships transport less than 5% of Australia’s cargo and a revival of the industry, including the use of nuclear-powered ships, could reduce congestion, pollution and fatalities on the roads.

He blamed the lack of growth of coastal shipping in Australia on “over-regulation, poor fiscal policy, fear of unions, inadequate infrastructure, lack of skills and lack of a positive government coastal shipping policy framework”.

He urged Transport, Treasury and Defence policy-makers to take initiatives and provide incentives to make coastal shipping more attractive. This includes scrapping existing disincentives, exempting coastal shipping from protracted environment protection approval process, exempting shipping fuel from tax, introducing an investment allowance similar to Scandinavia and improving coastal port and landside infrastructure.

He supported the use of nuclear powered coastal ships as, despite high capital costs, they have low operating costs and reduced emissions.

He added that he would be seeking government funds to design a prototype vessel fuelled by nuclear power.
