Toyota Industries Corporation is once again listed the world's top material handling provider
The dhf Intralogistik and Logistik Journal ranks Toyota Industries Corporation (TICO) number one on the global market in its list of material handling providers.
Every year since 2001, the dhf Intralogistik Journal and the Logistik Journal magazines have placed Toyota at the top of their worldwide ranking lists. These lists are determined by the companies' performance at the end of each fiscal year. The most recent publications cover the period spanning from 1st April 2011 until 31st March 2012.
Despite a rough economic climate marked by instability, Toyota has managed to keep its sales and profits at bay, and to stay in pole position. A considerable effort, since production had additionally been affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011. These downturns and the current outcome prove that Toyota is a strong brand with a solid organization behind it.
