Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
While supply chain is just one of the applications for materials handling, it is becoming an increasingly important one.
As we report this week, data from the US-based Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals shows that this billion-dollar sector is growing and becoming more complex. On the one hand, e-commerce is accelerating, and on the other, input costs like fuel, labour and real estate are placing operators under pressure.
This raises the need for innovation - and we're already seeing a host of changes, from automation to 'uberisation'.
It's fascinating stuff.
