Significant truck and indoor logistics suppliers, importers, and manufacturers in Finland are members of the Industrial Trucks section. The product selection includes different forklift trucks, including used trucks, as well as stackers and pallet trucks. The truck commerce covers sales directly to the end client or different forms of rental operations. Renting has established a market share of more than one third – services and solutions are increasing their share. The development is monitored with, for instance, customer surveys.
Truck commerce is international, but the associated service demand is local. The Industrial Trucks section monitors the changes in the market and the business environment, legislation projects, and market surveillance in the industry. The members develop their own service business to support the logistics processes they have produced. Occupational safety and constantly developing environmental requirements are key targets of development in terms of responsibility. The monitoring of the business environment is correspondingly focused.
The Industrial Trucks section organised the Logistiikka 2011 and 2013 exhibitions in cooperation with Tampere Trade Fairs Ltd and partners (e.g. LIMOWA). The Logistiikka 2016 will be organised in the fall of 2016.
The Chairperson of the section is director Juha Jaakola from Rotator Oy, and its representative is Heikki Ojanperä.
