World Business Style

Toyota Material Handling Australia has signed on with MEGATRANS2018 to showcase not only its current suite of products, but also some exciting new additions set to hit the market in 2018.

The company offers a wide range of forklifts and battery-electric warehouse products to the Australian industry, catering to the varying needs of material handling businesses around the nation.

Toyota Material Handling Australia National Sales & Product Manager – Automation Tony Raggio attributes the diversity of MEGATRANS2018 as an aspect of the multi-modal supply chain trade show that attracted the materials handling specialist

“The main fact for us was, as the show is diverse, it will appeal to not only potential forklift customers, but also customers considering automation as part of their future business,” said Raggio.

“People have always associated Toyota Material Handling as a forklift company. We would use MEGATRANS2018 to show customers our new automation products for 2018, including our Autopilot ‘driverless forklifts’, which we are planning on showcasing.”

Raggio said that because the event covers a wide array of sectors within the Australian supply chain and logistics sector, the decision to exhibit at MEGATRANS2018 was a significant one.

“With people now having access to information at their fingertips it’s important to be very selective when deciding which exhibition to exhibit in. We chose MEGATRANS2018 as we felt it would attract clients that would be interested in our now very wide range of material handling equipment products.”

Raggio added that the show is great chance for Toyota Material Handling to catch up with existing and new customers and suppliers.

“It’s also a great opportunity for us to thank our customers for their patronage over the past 50 years and for helping to make Toyota the number-one forklift brand in Australia – according to industry sales statistics,” he added.

In addition to the new products the company will exhibit at the show, 2018 represents the fiftieth anniversary of the first Toyota forklift sold in Australia so the company will have some special celebrations planned for MEGATRANS2018, with more information on these celebrations to be released closer to the date.

MEGATRANS2018 takes place at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre 10-12 May 2018.
