5 Essential Qualities To Look For In A HIAB Supplier

Posted by ALAN BROWN on Feb 19, 2019 2:12:00 PM

When choosing any supplier, a good working relationship is the top priority for long term satisfaction on both sides. It must be win/win for both customer and supplier. First rate HIAB suppliers know this and go out of their way to deliver the best possible service. That usually means taking actions to strengthen their capability, such as gaining accreditations, investing considerably in staff training and equipment to achieve high performance standards, and ensuring an excellent relationship with their own suppliers, not least HIAB, so that your supply chain can be as assured as they can make it. HIAB’s own policy towards identifying excellent suppliers gives a good indication of the ethos you want to see in your own supplier:

4 Benefits Of Reading A HIAB Crane Service Manual

Posted by ALAN BROWN on Jan 17, 2019 5:12:41 PM

When we get a new phone, tablet or cooker even, we tend to read through the manual to better understand which buttons or knobs do what and how the item operates in general.

Very often, new operators are trained on the job by more experienced hands, and perhaps handed a copy of the operator’s manual if one is still available.
