Hoist, which will exhibit at booth 3043, promotes overhead lifting above all other forms of material handling. There are advantages of, say, gantry and jib cranes over widely used lift trucks, but the challenge is positioning the products in a way that convinces end users that is the case.


Event organiser, the Material Handling Industry of America (MHIA), says visitors, “will come to see, touch and operate the solutions of over 500 of the top material handling and logistics providers. The 150,000 sq ft show floor will feature manufacturing, warehousing, distribution, assembly, logistics and IT solutions for the supply chain.”
