Logistics Link South 2010 promises to be one of the year’s most time-efficient ways for logistics managers to see the latest in productive, cost effective and energy-saving systems and technologies. The first big industry event in a challenging year, Logistics Link South takes place on the 2nd and 3rd of February at Sandown Park, Esher.
Products and services on show will address some of the most vital areas for improvement throughout the logistics process – better use of space, lowering transport costs, developing more flexible and productive supply chains, lowering staff costs, implementing the latest IT developments – and of course going green. Most notably more exhibitors are focusing on achieving faster payback and improved ROIs for clients, making it easier to justify investments at the most senior levels.
Among a number of equipment exhibitors, Aislemaster will be presenting their AC technology, designed to reduce handling costs with lower fuel consumption, reduced component wear and tear and longer productive machine life. Translift will be displaying the Bendi B3, able to operate in an aisle only 1.6m wide and helping users to regain lost space. SSI Schaefer plans to display concepts as diverse as automated stock management systems – and using environmentally cardboard containers instead of plastic.
More exhibitors than ever will be explaining how digital technology in various forms is transforming logistics processes, improving productivity and customer service.
RFID systems will feature on several stands including SSI Schaefer, Inotec and Belgravium. Knapp is presenting the latest voice-driven order picking systems which can be up to a third more productive than hand held scanners, while Red Prairies’ supply chain workforce management system is claimed to be able to lower labour costs by 15%- 20%.
Following the recent Logistics Link North in Doncaster which had the highest attendance in its five-year history, demand for tickets for Logistics Link South is expected to be high.
