IMHX 2019, the UK’s largest event for professionals within the logistics, supply chain and material handlings industry, officially gets underway today.
Held in Birmingham, more than 450 of the intralogistics industry’s names in attendance, the four-day event is an opportunity to see the newest products and services enter the market. IMHX evaluates thousands of new products, services and exclusive launches which showcase new-to-market solutions. Some of the 450 exhibitors include Briggs Equipment, Investec and Toyota Material Handling.
Offering the chance to gain valuable insight into upcoming trends at free-to-attend seminars and workshops, IMHX provides the opportunity to future-proof operations and uncover the most effective ways to drive down costs from distribution and supply chain networks. As the only comprehensive logistics event in the UK, the importance of reducing costs and maximising supply chain efficiencies are key business drivers, with IMHX seeking to help operations overcome these challenges.
There is set to be a number of new product launches from companies such as JCB, which will showcase models from the Teletruk range of telescopic lift trucks at IMHX like the newly unveiled JCB 30-19E. There will also be new product launches from Demantic, which invites attendees to experience the future of intelligent logistics, and ProGlove, which introduces MARK 2 that allows assembly workers, pickers to save up to four second per barcode scan through improved ergonomics.
“IMHX is always a key diary date for logistics professionals. With the vast array of equipment, solutions and technology on show this year, IMHX 2019 is no exception,” commented Rob Fisher, IMHX 2019 Exhibition Director. “Supply chain issues are at the top of every company’s agenda. The relentless rise of e-commerce is forcing retailers, manufacturers and logistics operators to adapt the design of their facilities to keep pace with today’s consumers who demand ever-faster and more efficient delivery of goods.”
