Welcome to the March 1st Warehouse Logistics News. We’re proud to present our Foodex Logistics supplement, published with this issue. WLN is official media partner for the logistics part of the Foodex 2014?UK show for the food and drink manufacturing industry, at the NEC from Monday 24th to Wednesday 26th March. In our supplement we preview the Show and look at the key exhibitors.

chazIn our special features, ‘Pallet Focus’ includes wood and plastic pallet suppliers, pallet pools, pallet management and pallet inverters. ‘Warehouse Lighting’ covers smart lighting solutions including LED, energy-efficient, long-life and sensor-activated systems. And ‘Warehouse I.T.’ takes in E-commerce and fulfillment, RFID, barcodes, readers, scanners, labels and handheld technology.

As reported on our front page, The Rack Group has strengthened its impressive arsenal of services and products designed to save customers from costly repair bills by identifying damage early and using bespoke repair materials so uprights, bracing and welded frames can be repaired without having to replace the whole component. The Rack Group’s Rack Aid Management System includes racking inspections, repairs using bespoke materials, training on how to inspect racking and work around pallet racking and Rack Armour, the world leading pallet racking protection product. This reduces pallet racking damage by up to 80%, saving on repair bills and lowering the risk of injury and other dangerous scenarios involving pallet racking.

We have an exclusive interview with Theresa Barlow, General Manager at MapMechanics, the one-stop shop for logistics optimisation solutions, geographic information systems and mapping data, including the market-leading TruckStops routing and scheduling system. MapMechanics continues to develop its product range, and is now rolling out its latest TruckStops release (version 20), to end users worldwide. Operating from offices in Brentford, Middlesex and Clearwater, Florida, MapMechanics has over 25 years’ experience providing map-based solutions to users from niche specialists to major operations, who all enjoy improved efficiencies and other tangible business benefits. TruckStops users in Europe include Alliance Boots, Welsh Water, Nightfreight, Saint-Gobain Glass, Dukes Bailiffs, Cormar Carpets, Sud Ouest, the French newspaper group, Spicers office supplies and Richard Burbidge timber supplies.

We also have an exclusive interview with Peter Church, MD of lift truck component supplier FB Chain. With increasing health and safety legislation that can render company directors personally liable for work-related accidents, product quality has become a bigger influence on purchasing decisions than price when it comes to components and spares for materials handling equipment. FB Chain is committed to making forklift manufacturers and lift truck dealers and repairers aware that because chain is safety critical, it is essential to specify the right product every time.
