Live demos show off logistics technology

Following its highly successful debut in a live warehouse environment in 2008, Logistics Link Live returns to Magna Park on 13 and 14 May with an exciting mix of products, seminars and live demonstrations.

With margins cut to the bone, supply chains need to be as efficient as they possibly can be – and technology can be the key to gaining a competitive edge.
Visitors to Logistics Link live have the chance to see products in action under real working conditions and understand how they can help to create absolutely effective operations.

From increasing warehouse efficiency through to better fleet management, leaner logistics and streamlined supply chain management, Logistics Link Live covers the whole spectrum of technology for improving supply chain performance.

Products that visitors will be able to see in action include warehouse automation equipment, lift trucks, wireless and RDT systems, voice picking, bar coding, labelling, packaging systems, supply chain and fleet management software and telematics. Complementing these will be services such as contract logistics providers, consultancies, specialist services providers, developers and facilities managers.

The venue itself, Gazeley's Solar warehouse at Magna Park, represents the latest thinking in energy-saving eco-design and provides the perfect context in which to see at first hand what efficiencies can be achieved.

The size of the venue means that even the largest exhibits can be shown in a real-life setting. Some of the large-scale highlights in the Live Arena include working demonstrations of storage and racking solutions, high-reach lift trucks manoeuvring in tight spaces, time-efficient packaging equipment and voice systems for fast and error-free order picking.

Supporting the exhibits and live demonstrations is a free seminar programme. Case studies from industry experts will cover some of the thinking behind advanced logistics technology and look at the benefits it has brought to users.

Logistics Link Live is aimed at professionals in all aspects of the supply chain, including warehouse, transport and distribution management, IT systems, purchasing and procurement, freight forwarding, supplier management and strategic direction.

Perfectly located at the heart of one of Europe's most successful distribution hubs, Logistics Link Live offers easy motorway access from the M1, M6 and M69 motorways and plenty of free parking right next to the show.
