Toyota retains its global number one spot

Toyota has retained its position as the world's largest supplier of fork lift trucks, according to the latest rankings published by influential German magazine dhf-intralogistik.

Combined global sales of its brands - Toyota, Raymond, CESAB and BT - accounted for 20.72% in 2013/14 (up from 18.53%) of the world market in turnover, according to the calculations of dhf-intralogistik. The Kion Group - with brands including Linde, Still, OM, Fenwick, Voltas and Baoli - remained in a solid second place with 16.39%, albeit slipping back slightly from the previous year (17.88%).

These two were once again well clear of Jungheinrich in third with 8.35% of the market, up from 7.62% in 2012/13.

Completing the top five global manufacturers were Nacco - its Yale and Hyster brands are distributed in the UK by Briggs Equipment - and another US-owned manufacturer Crown Equipment, each of them holding the same positions as in 2012/13 with 7.05% and 6.35% market share respectively.

The only change to the top 10 from a year ago is that Mitsubishi leap-frogged over UniCarriers (Nissan, Atlet and TCM) to move into seventh place.
