Many supply chain professionals are on the cusp of an existential crisis; automate or become extinct. However, looking for the right technologies and building a fully automated and intelligent supply chain is a colossal task to say the least.
During the CeMAT AUSTRALIA 2016 Exhibition, we spoke with Vivid Industrial’s Head of Business Development, Samuel Redmond about the future of industrial lighting and how they can save businesses costs in energy consumption and maintenance.
CeMAT AUSTRALIA 2016 brought the latest updates on intralogistics and materials handling to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from July 14-16 2016. We were lucky to speak with Sascha Schmel, Managing Director of VDMA about the latest innovations in intralogistics and where technology will take us in the next five years, see what he has to say about the new era for supply chain management.
For three days, Melbourne was home to Australia’s logistics and supply chain elite. CeMAT AUSTRALIA opened its doors on the 12th of July, and holding true the CeMAT global brand, this event brought the latest in automation and materials handling to the showfloor.

The mobile revolution has sprung upon many businesses the need to adapt strategic thinking. Mobile, cloud, data, virtual reality, AI, and the concatenation of all things digital, thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT), are shaping both human behaviour and business technology.
The term “innovation” is applied somewhat generously in many industries. However, innovation truly is the heart of the materials handling and intralogistics industry and will be vital, along with exceptional customer service, to ensuring the industry continues to thrive long into the future.
