Inside Forkliftaction.com Contact the Forkliftaction team
The finishing touches have begun at CeMAT, the leading materials handling event in Hannover, Germany. Of course, Forkliftaction.com will be there in force, with an editorial representative and a customer service team at our booth. It is important to support these industry events, to see who is there and, of course, to be seen. But we should not read too much into absences.  After the recent ProMat gathering in the US, our Discussion Forum was abuzz with all kinds of speculation about the no-shows. Are they in financial trouble? Are they pulling out of the market? Sometimes, companies take hard business decisions, and that can include rethinking their participation at trade events. After all, the trade shows are businesses too, and like all others, they need to prove their value and their worth. So while we’d urge you to come and visit us in Hannover, don’t read too much into it when a company is not represented at a trade show.

"Nissan aren't stupid. They want out of forklifts and don't want their image damaged .".
Daveilift, United Kingdom
"Certainly, fuel costs affect your business profits - figure out what the impact is at today's price vs same period last year or last month. The first step might be look at ways that consumption can be reduced, secondly, send a communication to your customer base that delivery, service calls costs have been adjusted to offset the increase in fuel/oil etc costs.".
johnr_j, United States
"There's a couple of different Impact Sensor devices such as Shockwatch or G-Force that you can buy from any of your local forklift dealers. It depends on how in-depth you want to get as to which of either one of these that you are interested in. Either one can show you at the time of impact, who was operating lift, how hard the impact was. You can also have them completely shut down the machine and have to be reset by supervisor. Also either one can give you fleet reports too.".
