Forklift operators have a challenging role, and without their talent, skill and professionalism, the sector couldn’t continue to operate. That is why in 2020 Talent in Logistics and the international industrial truck manufacturer UniCarriers will once again search for the ‘Forklift Operator of the Year’. For the first time, Talent in Logistics and UniCarriers will hit the road, as they set to host a month full of competitions and roadshows – visiting in the North, South and Midlands.
Ruth Edwards, Business Development Director at Talent in Logistics, thanks UniCarriers for their continued support – UniCarriers officially sponsors the event for the fourth year in a row now. “It’s extremely important to us that we work collaboratively with organisations and individuals to make a difference, whilst ensuring our key focus is on the people who are seldom recognised but without whom our sector could not survive”, says Ruth Edwards. UniCarriers is one such organisation – a company that shares Talent in Logistics’ passion for recognising talented individuals who showcase safety and efficiency in their everyday role. This is also emphasised by UniCarriers UK Sales Director Chris Bates: “The relationship between Talent in Logistics and UniCarriers is a perfect fit. Our business has a history of product development focusing on safety and operator ergonomics. Providing trucks for this competition – especially our award-winning TX electric counterbalance, creates a spectacular showcase to the Logistics industry. Alongside the competition this year, UniCarriers will be hosting forklift truck roadshows which will not only demonstrate the trucks, and their latest technology – but allow visitors to gain advice on their Materials Handling Operation from our sales teams”.
