Readers will recall that we marked our 16th anniversary a couple of weeks ago, but what was not evident in our recap was the growing reach of this newsletter.
This week, you're sharing this column with close to 66,000 colleagues around the world. In May, we surpassed the 65,000 mark and we continue to grow steadily.
Remember, everyone who receives this newsletter has actually signed up to get it - we don't buy databases and spam it out, unlike so many publications out there.
Of course, we're always keen to expand our reach, and if you know anyone who would benefit from reading our news, analysis and columns, feel free to forward this on so that they too can sign up.

In The Discussion Forums
"For a project I am currently trying to compare the different spare part/after sales logistic structures of the manufacturers/spare parts sellers. I am interested in parts availability in percent (e.g. 97% of all parts are in stock), delivery speed (e.g. parts are delivered within 24/until next day) and the structure of their spare parts distribution (e.g. local warehouses and so on)".

"I've been thinking about going out on my own and offering these services to companies through my own safety company. Has anyone in this group tried this before or know someone that has or does anyone have any recommendations or suggestions?".
PWNOLA, United States
"My suggestion is to contact the local Crown and/or Raymond dealer and maybe Yale that covers your area. These guys are the top 3 sellers of order selectors and ask them your question.".
