ABSTRACT
By the end of March 2002, the market in Great Britain for fork lift trucks will show a decline of 4.2 percent since the end of the first quarter 2001. The counterbalance truck market showed a tiny increase of just 0.3 percent while the market for warehouse trucks fell by 9.6 percent. It is encouraging to note that after very difficult third and fourth quarters in 2001, the first quarter of 2002 has shown an increase on the first quarter of 2001. The modest 2.4 percent increase fuelled by a good recovery in the market for counterbalance trucks, at least suggests better times ahead.
