Its purchases last year of Egemin Automation and Retrotech show its growing interest in logistics automation. Watch this space for future collaborations as it becomes increasingly clear that businesses whose primary activity is "moving big stuff" will face increasing competition and those who look more broadly at their role in the supply chain and logistics spectrum will find expanded opportunities and greater synergies.
