You can be the next forklift champion

In an effort to promote the importance of forklift operation and operators in the supply chain and logistics industry, the National Forklift Championships is on again.

The event, hosted by the Supply Chain and Logistics Association of Australia (SCLAA), will provide forklift operators with an opportunity to prove their driving skills, compete with others around Australia, win prize money, plus achieve national recognition as a champion.

Entries are open for all operators who have a valid forklift licence and can driver either a reach truck or counterbalanced forklift truck in racking.

Last year’s winners, Angela Mulloy from Pacific Brands and Trevor Webb from Sydney Markets, will defend their titles in Melbourne in April 2009.

The focus of the competition is on accurate and safe driving skills and knowledge, not on speed. Competitors start with a score of 0 and receive points for any errors made, with the participant with the lowest number of points becoming the winner.

All participants will receive a certificate of participation, with the winner(s) receiving a $3,000 worth of prize as well as a trophy.

The first round of heats for counterbalanced forklift operation is slated for this October and November across Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney.
