Digitalisation is transforming a large number of sectors within the economy – and this is inclusive of the logistic sector. The transformation process is a key source of far-reaching opportunities and proves to be a robust avenue for growth.
But for the big and established players among them, it also harbours a certain degree of risk, as many start-ups are bursting onto the market with smart IT solutions and all manner of new products and business models.
AG. Matthias Fischer, President and CEO, Toyota Material Handling Europe said: “We know that the market is searching for answers and guidance, it’s our job to share our experience. Today’s new ideas are much more oriented around technology rather than hardware, which is why we will be presenting our stories in hall 4, alongside other technology leading exhibitors, rather than occupying the traditional truck pavilions where we have been in recent years.” The innovations on display will include a wealth of logistics solutions from multiple backgrounds, distributed across several display categories. Among the providers of the solutions are such names as Autostore, Hänel, Metalsistim, Toyota Materials Handling, Sick, Siemens, SEW, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, Oracle, PSI, SAP, Software AG and via store systems. They will highlight the benefits of digitalisation and present solutions for the digital management and control of tomorrow’s logistics processes.
