Material Handling Summit 2015
The summit, to be held from December 2-4, 2015 at MMRDA grounds, Mumbai, is poised to bring together companies that have made advancements in material handling.
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 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.
