Webinar: From Factories to the Future – A Story of Innovation in the Manufacturing and Logistics Industries

April 20, 2017


Consumerism, globalization and technology continue to change our world and drive a number of mega-trends that must be acknowledged in order to understand our present and prepare for our future. These mega-trends are both influenced by, and have a direct influence on, the manufacturing and logistics industries.

Our industry is no stranger to innovation. Throughout our modern history we have found new ways to push, pull, rotate, feed, extrude, load, pick, pack and deliver – pushing the boundaries of efficiency, cost effectiveness and quality. The pace of social change and the sheer number of emerging technologies is mind-boggling; Block Chain, Bots and Apps, Augmented Reality, Autonomous Vehicles, the Internet of Things and Big Data are just a few.

We will discuss the merits of some of these trends and advances, examine their impact and provide some practical application ideas for those of us who aren’t sure what’s relevant, what we need to catch up with, or indeed, what we really need to get ready for.
