Market Statistics - Remote Demand

ALLMI has released its loader crane industry sales figures for the second half of 2023, completing market statistics for the full year.  Whilst showing strong sales across a range of sectors, one of the most noticeable developments was the increase in demand for remotes, with 76% of invoiced sales relating to lorry loaders with control units of this type, compared to 61% in 2022.

ALLMI Technical Manager, Keith Silvester, comments “We continue to see this positive trend in the demand for remote controls, which reflects the significant benefits they bring to lorry loader operation. However, as we have highlighted for many years, it is important to remember that they can create potential hazards if used incorrectly and so those responsible for loader crane operations are encouraged to adopt ALLMI’s freely available ‘Safe Use of Remote Controls’ campaign material.  This includes a web-based video, a toolbox talk, and an information leaflet aimed at operators and their immediate supervisors.
