LIDD’s Speaking Sessions

Title: Insights to Action in Supply Chain Planning
Speaker: Jeff Hamilton
Track: Supply Chain and Innovation
Description: Attendees will learn about a straightforward roadmap for shifting from reactive to proactive supply chain management. This strategy involves translating business goals into measurable metrics, establishing and monitoring process improvements, assigning owners for processes and metrics, and providing necessary training and support for successful change management.

Class: Not will, but where will the Robots take over? Automating with Robots in Foodservice
Speakers: Jeff Hamilton
Track: Warehouse and Innovation
Description: Logistics Automation can be a disruptive and costly. Autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) make it attainable. But not all AMRs are created equally. During this session, we will highlight the best-use cases and seamless integration of AMRs in a foodservice application. We’ll share how they can be cost justified and incorporated reliably into the food industry not only to streamline operations but also to improve overall cost productivity.
