They say there’s a tool for every activity and increasingly we’re seeing just how versatile materials handling equipment can be. Forkliftaction.com News tries to include case studies in our newsletters and these are intended to show not only what equipment is available, but also how it is being used in a range of applications. And as needs change - aisles become narrower, racking gets taller, weather conditions become more extreme and new uses evolve - it seems that manufacturers continue to meet the challenges. If you know of an interesting application, please let us know using the “contact us” button above.
