Investment in the logistics market is being driven by a number of factors: the shortage of quality warehousing; e-commerce; omni-channel; and a reviving economy – particularly for 2015. With new warehouses comes storage and materials handling; add e-commerce into the equation and the solutions become more complex.
IntraLogisteX can call on the support of the most respected magazines in the logistics and supply chain markets: Logistics Manager and Supply Chain Standard.
