Logistica 2009 in full swing


The Logistica tradeshow 2009 in Utrecht (NL) started on november 10th. Logistica is the largest logistic tradeshow in the Netherlands with 270 exhibitors on Logistica and 110 on ICT&Logistics.

Logistica is held every 3 years. On Logistica visitors can see a complete offer, including automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS), order picking systems, forklift trucks, packaging systems, Warehouse Management Software and Auto ID.

Innovation is the central theme on Logistica, especially on various seminars. Innovation tours are organized along ten booths where various innovative solutions are explained on the field of order picking and integrated systems. The tours start at the booth of Vanderlande Industries where the PICK@EASE ergonomic workstation is shown. Another eyecatcher at Vanderlande is the automated case picking system with the MLS Spider of RSW (winner of Logistica Award 2009). A lot of attention is also given to TEUN B.V. with a solution for full automatic unloading of cartons from containers.

“A trade show to be proud of”. That’s the opinion of prof. René de Koster, the chairman of the Logistica foundation. Prof. de Koster is especially interested in ergonomics in combination with productivity and safety.
“Ergonomics can absolutely increase productivity. That’s good to know in the present economic situation. We can also see ergonomics in the Logistica Award. As a member of the jury I was pleasantly surprised by the high level of all the submissions. A lot of them included ergonomics”
