Inside Forkliftaction.com Contact the Forkliftaction team
There's no doubt that the Internet is one of the most significant business enablers of the century. We are all increasingly dependent on the online environment for communication, research and even commerce.
And most of us tend to take the worldwide web for granted most of the time. Until it stops working, that is!
Earlier this week, our service provider suffered a hardware failure which took our website offline for a few hours during peak business time in Europe and North America. We apologise for the inconvenience if you were not able to load our site or read our newsletter.
We have been assured that the issue is now fixed and services are running normally.

"I'm sure you all had a look at the 2025 future forecast for materials handling and logistics, in other words the US roadmap 2025. I'm wondering if there's a similar report for Europe or EMEA? I can't find anything related to that and it would be a good piece of work to consider for decision making in long term.".
cb_analyst, United Kingdom
"I did a forklift training course in my local town passed the written test and the actual forklift test on a order picker and reach. I thought the license would instantly enable me To land a job driving forklifts. WRONG. No one wants to hire me without previous experience of 6 months and up.".
Kennetht09,
"I agree. In some cases, example: emission control on ICE trucks, it is mandated by government. The complexity is inherent in the system. Things like telemetry are nice until the customer starts getting alerts on their PC or phone in the middle of the night. I sometimes would like to go back 20 years when equipment was simpler.".
