There’s never been as much demand for top quality warehousing and logistics equipment, solutions and services as we’re seeing now. But finding the right supplier partners in the different areas can be like picking your way through a maze.


One answer is to visit IMHX 2016, returning to the NEC Birmingham from 13-16 September. With more exhibitors than ever, IMHX is a good place to spend a day or two. We’ll be previewing the show in our IMHX Preview, published with our September 1st issue. But first we present our IMHX Exhibitor Focus, a selection of some of the major companies at the show. Each one we are highlighting is a key innovator in their area, helping keep the warehousing and logistics sector the driving force behind UK industry.

To quote Tony Wallis of Toyota Material Handling UK, one of our featured companies in this supplement, the biggest challenges UK logistics people face at present are the pressures from customers and their expectations about delivery.

“Never before have we seen such demands, driven by technology, for the shortest lead times, quickest delivery and the utmost flexibility,” Tony says in his recent interview about IMHX. “Customers expect total visibility in the supply chain, from raw materials to finished products.”


Keeping your logistics setup in shape and staying competitive comes down to finding compatible supplier partners providing total business solutions backed by a full complement of support services to help you as you grow. Our featured companies will be very pleased to see you on their stands at IMHX 2016 and you’re very welcome to come and see us on our stand, 9D25, over the four days of the event.
