Toyota sold its first forklift in Australia in 1968 and has enjoyed solid success ever since, and has spent the last nine years as the number one forklift supplier.

The central focus of the TMHA display at Megatrans was the working display of a Toyota BT Optio OAE 120CB AGV Autopilot order picker.

In addition, the display featured engine powered and battery electric Toyota forklifts, along with a range of TMHA warehouse equipment.

TMHA is also showed a Bravi Sprint lift platform and a range of pallet racking.

"The Toyota Autopilot AGV represents the cutting edge in material handling equipment," TMHA president and CEO Steve Takacs says.

"The overall display highlighted TMHA's one-stop solution credentials, with our comprehensive range of market leading forklifts, reach trucks, stackers and order pickers.

"Added to that we showed Bravi work platforms, and our extensive range of racking," Takacs adds.
