Ma­te­rial han­dling is a crit­i­cal com­po­nent in achiev­ing cus­tomer ser­vice ex­cel­lence. De­ci­sion makers con­tinue to keep a close watch on the in­trigu­ing global ad­vance­ments in lo­gis­tics au­to­ma­tion. The three day expo will also see fo­cused dis­cus­sions on in­no­va­tions.

For first time buy­ers or small fleet op­er­a­tors look­ing for re­place­ment of age­ing fleet, the Medium and Heavy Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cle (M&HCV) and SCV pav­il­ions will open new av­enues. For es­tab­lished fleet op­er­a­tors, the BS-IV emis­sion norms (from Oc­to­ber 2015 on­wards) and in­tro­duc­tion of ad­vance truck­ing plat­forms are go­ing to be use­ful.

The stor­age equip­ment and sys­tems pav­il­ion will be for those seek­ing so­lu­tions for par­cel and post, bag­gage, food, bev­er­age and phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pa­nies’ lo­gis­tics needs. For High Mix and Low Vol­ume (HMLV) pro­duc­ers, this pro­vides the insight to choose the right so­lu­tion for the right ap­pli­ca­tion. This pav­il­ion will show­case range of lift trucks and ac­ces­sories, racks and shelv­ing, totes, bins and con­tain­ers.

Au­to­ma­tion is a grow­ing global trend and em­bed­ded in this sum­mit. The ex­hibits range from tra­di­tional au­to­mated pick­ing for pal­let han­dling au­to­ma­tion, case han­dling au­to­ma­tion, item pick­ing au­to­ma­tion to ad­vanced Rovers that are ca­pa­ble of sens­ing and adapt­ing to lo­gis­tics en­vi­ron­ment.

In this era of in­ter­net of things, it is not just im­por­tant but crit­i­cal to closely fol­low devel­op­ments in in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy so­lu­tions. The sum­mit will show­case tech­nol­ogy so­lu­tions rang­ing from bar­cod­ing/RFID, con­tainer track­ing, CRM, in­ven­tory man­age­ment, job man­age­ment, labour man­age­ment, or­der man­age­ment, pur­chas­ing, sched­ul­ing to ship­ping man­age­ment. It also cov­ers dis­pens­ing tech­nolo­gies, suit­able for peak sales pe­ri­ods that can as­sist in or­der pick­ing that help e-commerce play­ers quickly de­liver prod­ucts.
