Maidenhead, UK: Barloworld Handling has added 150 forklift trucks to its short term hire fleet includingover 100 Hyster Fortens lift trucks and 30 Hyster electric warehousing trucks.

Barloworld reports strong demand across all sectors of industry from customers looking to supplement their core forklift fleet with additional units at peak times.
