EPTDA’s mission is to strengthen its members in the industrial distribution channel to be successful, profitable, and competitive in serving customers to the highest standards.
PLI is an essential tool for any EPTDA member to develop their commercial understanding and stay competitive within the market environment. Whilst each report can be read independently, when considered as a series, PLI reports can offer members great opportunities for synergy across industries. For example, consider looking at the processes involved in material handling (2019) and recycling (2020) and the similarities as uncovered in this latest report on forestry.
