New Material-Handling Research Effort Seeks Thought Leader

A group of trade associations and publications are working to craft a “road map” for the material-handling and logistics industry.

According to its developers, the MHL Roadmap is intended to create “a blueprint of market, technological and development priorities that are needed to accomplish long-term industry goals.” The effort begins with four two-day meetings that will bring together market and technology experts in material handling and logistics from industry, academia and government. Roadmap sponsors are seeking industry thought leaders to participate. The workshops will take place Apr. 16-17 in Atlanta, May 7-8 in Washington, D.C., June 4-5 in Los Angeles and June 26-27 in Chicago. Association partners in the project include the Center for Engineering Logistics and Distribution, College Industry Council on Material Handling Education, MHI and the Warehousing Education and Research Council. Publication partners include SupplyChainBrain, CSCMP’s Supply Chain Quarterly, DC Velocity, Inbound Logistics, Logistics Management, Material Handling & Logistics, Modern Materials Handling and Supply Chain Management Review.
