INTRALOGISTICA ITALIA debuts with the clear goal of creating opportunities for interaction and exchange of know-how, counting on the invaluable participation of and interaction between organizers and exhibitors.
According to Mauro Corona, Commercial Director of Dematic, companies present at the fair must create opportunities for the visitor “to see and touch everything that the market offers.» Companies are asked to make the fair “the” moment to showcase their latest products and solutions.
Solutions that are increasingly turning towards automation systems that permit «an increase in service levels, while simultaneously obtaining lower operating expenses and costs», states Roberta Togni, Marketing & Contract Manager at Automha.
Return on investment should, in fact, be tailored to the client: for example a logistics operator will certainly have a different, more reduced time scale, compared to a manufacturing company.
«The market has changed — states Emmanuel Beghin, General Manager of Mecalux Italia — All companies, both large and small, are trying to exploit new sales channels to meet new challenges in a global market».Flexibility has become an essential part of company efficiency. For example full pallet logistics are disappearing and only innovation can support the evolution that is taking place.
Sample opinion surveys have shown that the combination of INTRALOGISTICA ITALIA with Ipack-Ima represents an added value for exhibitors and visitors thanks to Ipack-Ima’s direct links with and integral role in supply chain logistics. Moreover, the simultaneousoccurrence of the global event EXPO will act as a catalyst in drawing the world’s attention to Milan, not only from the food sector but also from many other new industrial investors.
