Inside Forkliftaction.com Contact the Forkliftaction team
Europe is a world on one continent, with economies of different strengths, diverse industrial activities and very different materials handling characteristics in each country. But there does appear to be one common theme in this month’s special report on the European forklift market - things are looking up. Of course, they’re looking up more in some countries than others, but the overall trend is positive.
Readers of our new-look newsletter will notice that we have made the special feature article easier to find in our new design. It’s no longer tucked away at the end - and can now be found in a prominent position. We hope that this change - and others which you’ll see over the coming weeks, makes it even easier to get your forklift news fix.
