IntraLogisteX returns to the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, on 28th July to the 29th July. This is the only intralogistics and materials handling show to take place in the UK in 2020.
With over 130 exhibitors confirmed, and two days of seminars looking at the latest trends in intralogistics and automation, it promises to be the biggest and best show to date since the exhibition was launched in 2015.
This year will see a major emphasis on automation with a huge number of suppliers including AMH Materials Handling, BS Handling Systems, Element Logic, Geek +, Honeywell Intelligrated, Interroll, KNAPP UK, Linde, SmartFreight, Swisslog and many, many more.
Craig Rollason, MD at KNAPP UK (stand 604) says of its appearance at IntraLogisteX 2020: “As well as informing visitors about KNAPP’s latest developments in AI-enabled robotics and the new pocket sorter that we will be launching later this year, we’ll be discussing our full range of automated intralogistics solutions – including the OSR Shuttle Evo storage system, ergonomic Pick-it-Easy Evo workstations, A-frame autopickers, Open Shuttle AGVs, the AI-powered and cloud-based redPILOT software and the hanging garment technology of KNAPP group member, Dürkopp Fördertechnik.”
SnapFulfil (stand 320) will showcase SnapCart, its autonomous mobile robot (AMR) that can reduce pickers’ daily walking distance from as much as 15 miles to 1 mile. The AMR can integrate seamlessly with SnapFulfil to ensure pickers can quickly and easily identify the right product for the right tote, driving improved efficiency and order accuracy.
HSM (stand 433) will be heading to the Ricoh Arena where its experts will be on hand to offer waste management advice and answer questions on their range of vertical baling presses and cardboard perforating systems. On display will be the ProfiPack P425 and V-Press 860 plus B, with the machines set to feature live practical demonstrations across the two days.
Goplasticpallets.com will be making its IntraLogisteX debut (stand 214) with a diverse range of plastic pallets including its heavy duty APB 1210 and 1208 pool pallets which are made from recycled HDPE.
Chris Middleton, formerly MD at Interroll (stand 621), explains the reason the materials handling giant has been a stalwart at the show: “This particular exhibition has a strict end user visitor policy, which ensures our time exhibiting is spent with key decision makers that have a requirement and intent to purchase.”
One visitor to IntraLogisteX from Jaguar LandRover said the show was “a fantastic opportunity to meet and interact with suppliers, understanding the current technological process in logistics” while a vistor from XPO Logistics said it was “an excellent showcase of current and future suppliers to the intralogistics market” and “well worth the visit”.
IntraLogisteX 2020 is also home to two conference programmes: the IntraLogisteX Conference and the Automation and Innovation Conference, both of which delegates can gain up to 8.5 CPD hours from attending.
Day one of the Automation and Innovation Conference includes Clipper Logistics chief executive Tony Mannix discussing ‘The Importance of Reverse Logistics’; Kerren Ratcliffe, associate director at Coca CLoa European Partners, on ‘Improving Customers Expectations Using Customer Data’ and Paul Whyte, MD at Best Food Logistics on ‘Transforming Profitability Through Brilliant Execution of the Final Metre’.
Day 2 sees Jim Hartshorne, MD at DHL Supply Chain, on “Using Automation as your Fulfilment Journey”; Andrew Hoyle, head of automation at Wincanton on ‘Warehouse Management’ and Rod McKenzie, MD of policy and public affairs at the RHA, on ‘Post-Brexit Logistics’ among many others.
The IntraLogisteX conference, which also runs across both days, already has speakers from Lucas Systems, Calor Gas, Sage UK, Oxspring, BluJay Solutions and Aurora Lighting confirmed.
