2019 MHI Innovation Awards: Technological Marvels Honored

For the seventh year, an expert panel of industry insiders has evaluated and selected the most innovative products and solutions created in our industry. Prior to April’s installment of ProMat 2019, exhibitors were invited to submit entries for consideration in the MHI Innovation awards across three different categories: Best New Innovation, Best Innovation of an Existing Product and Best IT Innovation.

MHI received 108 total submissions spread among the three groupings. To narrow down each category to four finalists prior to the show, the submissions were evaluated by a committee of six volunteer judges.

This year’s evaluators included representatives from Covenant Transport, Canada’s Department of National Defense, Framebridge, IKEA, PharmaLink, and Steelcase Inc. On Monday at ProMat, finalists’ exhibits were visited in person by the judges who selected the winners based on their ability to deliver quantifiable and sustainable return on investment (ROI), cost savings and customer satisfaction.

Awards were presented to the winning products and technologies on Wednesday during MHI Industry Night with Craig Ferguson.

This issue of MHI Solutions tackles the important topic of digital technologies in the supply chain industry, especially as it relates the transportation and logistics. Transportation plays a central role in supply chains, whether they are local or global enterprises. And just like the overall supply chain, transportation is facing a digital revolution including new solutions for tracking road, rail, sea and air freight and parcel transportation. These digital technologies are disrupting the industry, but they are also providing im-portant new solutions for transportation inefficiencies and urban logistics challenges. They are also creating new digital business models that enhance transparency and sustainability and contribute to end-to-end supply chain visibility. Like the innovations impacting supply chains, these trends are being driven by the growth of e-commerce and the consumers’ never-ending need for better, faster and cheaper. Ignoring them is done at your own peril.
