Market Statistics Released
ALLMI recently released its loader crane industry sales statistics for the first half of this year. The figures show an impressive industry performance, with strong sales across a range of sectors and overall growth against the same period last year.
Demand for remotes also continues to be strong (approximately 60% of invoiced sales relate to lorry loaders with control units of this type), reflecting the many benefits they bring to lorry loader operation. However, users should be reminded of the significant potential hazards they can create if used incorrectly and so are encouraged to adopt the Association’s freely available ‘Safe Use of Remote Controls’ campaign material, which includes a web-based video, an information leaflet aimed at operators and their immediate supervisors, and a ready-made toolbox-talk template document.
