Forklift operators have a challenging role, and without their talent, skill and professionalism, the sector couldn’t continue to operate. That is why in 2020 Talent in Logistics and the international industrial truck manufacturer UniCarriers will once again search for the ‘Forklift Operator of the Year’. For the first time, Talent in Logistics and UniCarriers will hit the road, as they set to host a month full of competitions and roadshows – visiting in the North, South and Midlands.
After being honoured as Materials Handling Equipment Provider of the Year twice in the last two years, UniCarriers has now won in the Customer Service category at the Temperature Controlled Storage & Distribution (TCS&D) Awards 2019. The globally active developer and manufacturer of industrial trucks convinced the jury with its high quality level of service. The TCS&D Awards were created to recognise companies and individuals making a difference in the temperature controlled storage and distribution industry. With its comprehensive range of forklift trucks UniCarriers has been providing excellent logistics solutions for this sector for more than 50 years.
The international forklift truck manufacturer UniCarriers is in search of the most talented forklift operator attending this year’s International Materials Handling Exhibition (IMHX) in Birmingham.

Entrants will have the opportunity to prove their skill by operating UniCarriers’ Award winning electric counterbalance truck TX3.
UniCarriers is again IFOY-winning: The 3-wheel electric counterbalance truck TX3 from UniCarriers has won first place in the Counter Balanced Truck category at this year's International Intralogistics and Forklift Truck of the Year (IFOY) Award. In extensive practical tests and the strict verdict of the IFOY jury of 27 international trade journalists, the TX3 beat its competition. Last Friday, 26 April, the IFOY Award 2019 was presented at the Vienna Hofburg. This makes the TX3 the second forklift from UniCarriers to receive the prestigious intralogistics award.
UniCarriers UK Ltd was honoured by a visit of Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal, in recognition of their long-standing partnership with international development charity Transaid. The forklift truck manufacturer welcomed Transaid’s patron to mark two very special occasions: to celebrate UniCarriers’ 50th anniversary, and also to receive, on behalf of Transaid, one of its counterbalance trucks. During her visit at the Head Office in Thame on Monday, April 8th, HRH The Princess Royal accepted the keys to the 2-ton diesel truck which will be delivered to Transaid’s partner training centre in Lusaka, Zambia, the Industrial Training Centre (ITC).
The ‘Talent in Logistics’ annual event enters its third round in 2019, and UniCarriers will again be sponsoring the ‘Forklift Operator of the Year’ competition held live at the event on 27th June 2019. This has now been announced by the international industrial truck manufacturer. At the live grand final, entrants will have to complete a number of interactive challenges, both theoretical and practical, to demonstrate their skill and talent in truck operating – with UniCarriers providing them with their TX3 electric counterbalance trucks. During the final heats at Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes (UK), a jury will answer the big question: Who will be the UK's Forklift Operator of the Year 2019?
Second victory in a row: As in the previous year, UniCarriers was able to prevail against the competition at the Temperature Controlled Storage & Distribution (TCS&D) Awards. The company received the award in the Materials Handling Equipment Provider of the Year category.

The international industrial trucks manufacturer is supplying the latest generation TX3 electric counterbalance trucks for the event. It is now the second year running that UniCarriers is providing support for Forklift Operator of the Year in its capacity as the award sponsor.
