SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - March 9, 2011) - Manufacturing Digital brings you extensive coverage of the Oscar ceremony of the materials handling industry, the Fork Lift Truck Awards 2011.

Now in its seventeenth year, the annual Fork Lift Truck Awards ceremony, took place on Saturday 12, February and was presented by BBC Radio 2's Sally "Traffic" Boazman.

The awards are hosted by the Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA), which maintains and raises standards in the materials handling industry. It is the most representative body of its kind in Europe. 

There are currently 11 categories in the awards ceremony, which range from Apprentice of the Year to the Safety Site and Lifetime Achievement Awards.
