Throughout the supply chain, materials movement (logistics) is a vital and operating-cost consuming issue. This is especially true in the beverage market because once a case of a beverage is packaged, it is actually available for the consumer; however, realistically, the case is handled many times before it reaches its final destination on store shelves. There is no value added by any movement beyond being placed in storage or loaded directly for delivery.
Suppliers throughout the material handling supply chain descended upon Atlanta for MHI’s Modex 2016 tradeshow, which took place April 4-7 at the Georgia World Congress Center. Attendees from various industries, including food and beverage, also were present to learn about the latest trends and innovations that are shaping the supply chain.
