logistics conferenceThe 33rd annual Material Handling and Logistics Conference will be held Sunday, Sept. 9, through Wednesday, Sept. 12, in Park City, Utah.

The event opens at the “Innovation Hub” where attendees can experience automation and data exchange in action. In this interactive lab setting, participants will discover how to leverage automation and advanced software technologies to optimize performance and profitability. Other benefits of the conference include a Keynote speech delivered by General Colin L. Powell, USA (Ret.), 65th Secretary of State, on Monday, Sept. 10, and a musical concert performed by John Fogerty on Tuesday, Sept. 11.

If we could recommend one track to our clients it would be Track 2: Next Gen Supply Chain. Learn how the industry’s up-and-coming technologies will help you develop an agile and adaptive global supply chain. This line-up includes a session entitled “What Will the Warehouse of Tomorrow Look Like,” which discusses Automatic Guided Vehicles and lift trucks, AI, and other innovations. And, if the latest high-tech solutions are of interest, the presentations in Track 5 will show you how technology can help your company ignite transformation. Session 8 in this track examines the latest unit load handling solutions to increase productivity, reduce costs, improve capacity, and maximize service levels.
