MHISolutionsmag.com—A cyberattack can happen to anyone and any company—even if you have cybersecurity programs in place. Hackers don’t just target big multi-national firms nor do they discriminate based on industry.
MHI has partnered with the College-Industry Council on Material Handling Education (CICMHE) to re-release a white paper titled "Blockchain and Supply Chain Management." This paper explores the idea that while the potential impact of blockchain on supply chain management could be enormous, many of the potential blockchain-enabled supply chain impacts will require significant research advances.
Supply chain operations are starting to see the real benefits of augmenting their workforce with autonomous mobile robots.
When the material handling and logistics industry’s premier event, ProMat 2019, opens on April 8, it will include over 950 exhibits from leading solution providers and a comprehensive Educational Conference focusing on what's next in best-in-class solutions for manufacturing and supply chain operations. Some of the highlights in store for attendees will include keynotes on blockchain, emerging tech, the supply chain gender gap and “The Profit” Marcus Lemonis.
