The symposium featured presentations from keynote speakers concerning land and location, supply chain planning and the capabilities of “leading-edge automation for efficient distribution,” according to a press release..


Starting the morning session, Mike Wilson of Logistics Simulation outlined how to select a systems integrator. Next on the podium was Nick Cook of leading developer Gazeley UK Ltd., with the topic ‘location and land’, and the morning was rounded off by Steve Knights, president of AMHSA, presenting a review of today’s handling systems.


During the lunch break, delegates had the opportunity to benefit from short and informal one-to-one clinics with AMHSA member companies, as well as the chance to view the Williams F1 Grand Prix Collection, featuring more than 40 of the team’s cars from over a quarter of a century of racing.

The afternoon session featured three fascinating case studies presented by Trevor Goldhagen of Wurth UK, supplier of automotive repair products; Peter Beer of British Gas; and Jeff Lamb of Coca-Cola Enterprises. Delegates then had the opportunity to quiz the presenters in a question and answer session chaired by Greger Lundesjö, independent logistics consultant, who acted as anchorman for the day.
