Q3 – always on the move, even in summer
The VDMA Info Day kicked off at the beginning of July with a focus on industrial plant engineering. Moritz Schmidt, Head of Sales at SAFELOG, contributed with his presentation about challenges in the commissioning of industrial plants. Using the example of automating the flow of goods from large and small parts warehouses with mobile transport robots at an Austrian sporting goods retailer, he illustrated the course of a project and pointed out potential pitfalls in the planning and implementation process.
To ensure that we continue to be able to realize such projects, the SAFELOG Bremen branch looked around for new talent at the Jobmesse Bremen (job fair in Bremen) at the end of August.
On August 26 and 27, our colleagues were on hand to answer questions from curious visitors about what mobile transport robots are, what they are used for and what software is behind the control of AGVs.
Don’t let up – showtime in Q4
The highlight at the end of the year was definitely the Logistics Summit, which took place on October 11 and 12 at the Areal Böhler in Düsseldorf. The high-caliber mix of congress and exhibition once again brought together many logistics decision-makers from a wide range of industries this year. In addition to the Main Stage, where panel discussions and keynote speeches were offered, presentations and discussions took place on 4 other stages in parallel. SAFELOG also took part in the Logistics Summit as an exhibitor and with a presentation in the Matterhorn Masterclass. Both the number and quality of contacts and discussions were excellent, confirming the impression from previous years that the Logistics Summit has established itself as an important event in the event calendar of the logistics industry’s executive floors. If you missed the presentation by Moritz Schmidt, Head of Sales, or would like to enjoy it again, you can watch it here.
We will definitely be back in Düsseldorf in October 2024.
The next opportunity to get young talents interested in mobile robots came on November 8 at the HOKO, which took place this year at Munich University of Applied Sciences. We attended the fully booked job fair with extensive information material to guide students to the SAFELOG stand. There was a great deal of interest in automation solutions and mobile robotics and we would be delighted if one or two of them came back to us.
We were at the last two events in 2023, SPS in Nuremberg and Logistics and Automation in Madrid, as a hidden exhibitor. In Nuremberg, we were able to present 1 AGV each at the stands of our partners Bihl & Wiedemann and STXi Motion from 14.11. to 16.11. At Logistics & Automation in Madrid, 29.11+30.11, we were represented by our partner FAW Logistics. Both trade fairs were very well attended and generated a large number of high-quality contacts.
