Around 5,500 trade visitors from Russia and neighboring countries came to Russia's only intralogistics tradeshow in order to learn about the latest logistics systems.
Every September, the country’s logistics experts traditionally come together in Moscow for CeMAT RUSSIA. Thus, from 19 to 21 September, more than 200 companies gathered to showcase their innovative products and solutions for the logistical processes of the future. The impressive lineup of exhibitors included such major international players as the TVH Group, STILL, Linde, BITO, MICRON, KOMATSU, Honeywell, Kaup, Manitou, PSI Logistics, SAP, Zebra Technologies, Vanderlande, KARCHER, COMITAS, JAC, DoorHan, Savoye and SSI Schäfer.
Every company had some new products to show. For example, Vanderlande presented its multidirectional, scalable shuttle concept ADAPTO, a modular shelving system that facilitates the optimal use of warehouse space. The Dutch company also exhibited its innovative AIRTRAX product family, which facilitates the handling of large volumes of goods in busy environments and over considerable distances as well as at changing heights, thus optimizing handling, order picking, sequencing and warehousing.
Packaging and order picking are areas that are characterized by steady growth.
A forum dedicated to the efficient management of company intralogistics was held on all three days of the show. At this event the heads of logistics in big industrial and trading companies presented and talked about best-practice solutions and trends in logistics and the digitization of logistical processes. Other key topics included the modernization of existing plant and the planning and optimization of supply chains. A total of 750 participants attended the forum.
