MODEX 2018 Coverage

MHI released the final numbers for MODEX 2018, which ran from April 9-12 at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center. MODEX 2018, the 4th edition of the expo, saw a 25 percent jump in the number of registrations for a total of 30,944.

The net square footage at MODEX 2018 also set a record, topping out at 283,025 square feet and featuring 925 exhibits. Reflecting the global nature of the expo, 140 countries were represented at this year’s MODEX.

“MODEX has grown not only in size, but also in overall scope. Attendees experienced a wide range of manufacturing, supply chain and transportation equipment and systems solutions and education,” said George W. Prest, CEO of MHI.

“There were more compelling reasons to attend this year than ever before. Whether they come to find solutions, evaluate vendors, learn about the latest trends and technological innovations or connect with industry leaders and peers, there is no substitute for the value that MODEX delivers. MODEX 2018 truly lived up to its motto, the Greatest Supply Chain Show on Earth,” added Prest.

MODEX 2018 is the largest international expo of its kind held in North or South America. The 2018 Georgia Logistics Summit was collocated with the event.

According to the recently released 2018 MHI Annual Industry Report, “Overcoming Barriers to NextGen Supply Chain Adoption,” eight out of ten survey respondents believe these supply chains will be the predominant model within just five years. However, the report found that the adoption of some of these technologies was slower than originally reported when MHI started the annual report in 2014. The report cites three top barriers to adoption of these technologies: 1. Making the business case for NextGen supply chain investments. 2. Tackling the supply chain skills gap and workforce shortage. 3. Building trust and security in digital, always-on supply chains. This issue of MHI Solutions focuses on the adoption of these digital solutions, from best practices in robotics and artificial intelligence to blockchain and innovations in last mile delivery.
