Future tech today
09 February 2018
A central theme running throughout LogiMAT will be Industry 4.0 and Logistics 4.0.
Between 13 and 15 March 2018 at LogiMAT in Stuttgart, more than 1,500 exhibitors, a quarter of them from European countries outside Germany and elsewhere in the world, will present ‘First-hand intralogistics: Digital – Connected – Innovative”.
The overriding theme among all exhibitors is the integration of modern technologies and materials into future-proof solutions for the challenges posed by Industry 4.0, Logistics 4.0, the Internet of Things (IoT) and the associated digitisation.
Peter Kazander, MD of the LogiMAT organising company EeroExpo says: “This is reflected in the LogiMAT 2018 motto ‘First-hand Intralogistics: Digital – Connected – Innovative’ as well as the ongoing theme of ’human/machine interaction’,” Kazander explains. “The majority of international exhibitors are presenting – many of them as world premieres – intelligent and innovative solutions to the current challenges in intralogistics. They are driven by the digitisation of business processes and the requirements for the collection, processing, filtering and provision of digitised data needed for the control of efficient and increasingly automated processes in intralogistics and supply chain management.”
