What are Forkliftaction.com's objectives?
Every addition to this website aims to offer our members new ways to promote their
businesses to fellow members, find new global markets, find leads for potential
customers or business partners, make contacts and develop new business opportunities.
This website will be the online reference and marketplace for the global materials
The internet is changing the way business is conducted. It affects sales and purchase
procedures for dealers and equipment buyers. Today electronic platforms provide
a virtual environment aimed at attracting companies to conduct their business in
innovative markets. Electronic platforms want to intervene in all traditional trading
procedures for materials handling equipment. Some of these marketplaces offer complete
online deal making.
Forkliftaction.com has great respect for the intrinsic deal making that characterises
the materials handling industry. It involves personal contact, on-site inspections
and appraisals, financing, shipping and warranty arrangements, cross selling and
partnerships. That's why we believe the change of traditional business processes
to digital marketplaces is a complex evolution that can only be carried and steered
successfully by people from the industry itself.
Forkliftaction.com understands that the materials handling industry today wants
simplicity and full control of the negotiation process by buyers and sellers. The
internet has to prove it can bring new values and consistent savings to our businesses,
before we'll let it alter our traditional business processes.
Forkliftaction.com needs you and your industry knowledge to make this project successful.
So don't hesitate to get involved and contribute to this digital evolution.
