The coronavirus is not to be taken lightly. As of mid-February, the number of cases worldwide had risen to more than 64,000 globally, 63,000 of which were in China, with the death toll at almost 1,400 and climbing.
Foodborne illnesses can spread quickly. A recent example is that of a batch of listeria-contaminated eggs causing one death and seven reported infections across five states. In many ways, the world of food supply chains is encapsulated in this tragedy. The contamination occurred in a single facility in Gainesville, Georgia, but resulted in products from more than 30 brands being pulled from the shelves and recalled. Grocery chains affected included Trader Joe’s, Costco, Lidl, Walmart and Kroger. Download this report today on how technology will boost transparency in food distribution.

Industry 5.0 — the fifth industrial revolution — places workers in the middle of the technological advancements occurring throughout the supply chain. While Industry 4.0 focused on the internet of things (IoT) and interconnectedness, the real value comes from putting workers in the middle of these technological evolutions.
By keeping workers at the center of the conversation, Industry 5.0 enables strong collaborative efforts between humans and robots, provides the foundation for the rise of the worker-centric DC, and ultimately results in a happier, more productive workforce.
In this live, interactive webinar, James Hendrickson, director of product & offering management, Honeywell Safety & Productivity Solutions, will explore:
How workercentric solutions accelerate DC productivity
Why technology in the DC will propel tomorrow’s mobile workers
The trends and investments that can boost the performance of your DC operations
