The U.S. Roadmap for Material Handling & Logistics
The U.S. Roadmap for Material Handling & Logistics is a report and action plan will help the industry determine how logistics and supply chain trends and challenges can be turned into action plans to develop needed capabilities in the U.S. between now and 2025.
The Roadmap was developed in an 18-month-long process. Its content is based on input from more than 100 thought leaders, including material handling and logistics practitioners, suppliers, academia, associations and government. MHEDA was an association partner that helped in putting the roadmap together. To view the full report, click here or visit www.mhlroadmap.org.
The Roadmap represents the ‘collective mind,’ as it were, of the entire industry—from end users to suppliers to academics to associations and government,” says Gue, who hopes the publication leads to collaborative solutions that address big problems.
“Many of the issues described in the Roadmap will be addressed by individual companies in response to market forces and advances in technology. But other problems will require disparate groups to pull in the same direction. Standardization, widespread collaboration, securing a qualified workforce for the future—these issues will require stakeholders to work together in new ways,” he explains.
The U.S. Roadmap for Material Handling & Logistics is a collaborative industry effort, involving five association partners and eight publication partners.
