The shortage of highly skilled forklift technicians continues to be an ongoing trend that presents significant hiring challenges to dealerships of all sizes. To combat this, many dealerships report that they have recruited automotive technicians into their industry or look for students who are in programs like hydraulics, diesel, and industrial maintenance because there is not a traditional forklift pathway for students.
