Logistics 4.0 from the perspective of practitioners – Smart Warehouse conference


Warehouse works, mechanization or automation, fulfillment, IoT - these are the main issues of the Smart Warehouse conference (31.05-1.06) which will take place as part of the Logistics, Warehousing and Transport Fair MODERNLOG. At the start of the event - a special panel #Human vs robotics by experts: Aleksandra Przegalińska, Magdalena Morze, Monika Duda, Malwina Faliszewska and Ilona Miziewicz-Groszczyk.

Smart Warehouse is a two-day conference at the heart of the most important event for the logistics industry in Poland - the Poznań MODERNLOG fair (30.05-2.06), which each year reflects current market trends and focuses on presenting innovative solutions in the field of logistics 4.0 and warehouses of the future. MODERNLOG is organized by ITM Industry Europe, which is the largest exhibition event for the industrial sector in this part of Europe. The coexistence of these events, at one place and time, creates a unique platform for the exchange of knowledge, presentation of innovative products, as well as pioneer solutions.

The conference is addressed to the heads of logistics, warehouse managers and supply chain managers who are interested in optimizing intralogistic processes in the spirit of logistics 4.0. Registration is underway:

Human vs robotics

What kind of colleagues at work will robots be (or already are)? How do employees react to these changes and what are their emotions? How can artificial intelligence influence business development and make our world more human? Experts from many circles will answer these questions: AI Professor – Aleksandra Przegalińska (Leon Koźmiński Academy), researcher of the future – Magdalena Morze (Łukasiewicz – PIT), logistics practitioner – Monika Duda (DHL Supply Chain), diversity trainer – Malwina Faliszewska and head of e-commerce – Ilona Miziewicz-Groszczyk (Hisert) gathered in the Smart Warehouse conference opening panel #Human vs robotics, how to stay with the work in the warehouse.

Direction: smart warehouse

Discussions within 4 main thematic panels - #IoT digitalization, #Mechanization and automation of warehouse processes, #AGV robots and #Fulfillment – logistics for e-commerce - will focus on automation, robotization and digitalization of warehouse work.

On the first day of the conference (31 May), the #Mechanization and automation of warehouse processes will take place. How to reduce the risk of errors in the design of storage systems? When is mechanization enough and when is automation justified? How to assess the organization’s readiness to implement automatic solutions? These are just a few issues that moderator Piotr Sędziak (Orbico Supply) will discuss with his guests. These include, among others: Grzegorz Prorok (Consafe Logistics), Krzysztof Stachowicz (AIUT), Paweł Wierzbicki (Toyota Material Handling).

She and the speakers will talk about the latest trends and realities, key barriers to project implementation, and what a modern warehouse really looks like today. The panel will be attended by, among others: Karolina Didyk (GXO), Michał Furmański (ABB), Artur Thomas (Jungheinrich).

Is it worth it and/or when is it worth using their services? What support can the seller count on by using fulfillment? What is the offer of fulfillment service providers and what technological development must be achieved in order to ensure the highest efficiency of logistics service of the online store? The speakers of the panel moderated by Marta Cudziło (Łukasiewicz – PIT) will answer these and other questions. The #Fulfillment – logistics for e-commerce conversation will start the second day of the conference (1 June). Interviewees include: Daniel Kusak (Ferag), Łukasz Mojzykiewicz (Europa Systems), Rafał Szcześniewski (Omnipack), Łukasz Wysokiński (InPost Fulfillment).
