The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport: South Africa (CILTSA) is gearing up to host an informative and insightful warehousing conference. This hybrid event themed ‘Warehouse Automation: the benefits and risks’ will take place on 23 May at The Garden Venue in North Riding, Johannesburg and online.
The program includes lectures on:
- ‘Warehouse Automation: The Benefits and Risks’ by Martin Bailey FCILT, President of Industrial Logistic Systems
- ‘How to optimize the digital transformation in your warehouse’ by Munya Huvsu, CEO – ISB Optimus
- ‘The current challenges that stand in the way of warehouse automation and how to overcome them’ by Gerhard van Zyl – Group Operations Director: AsimoTech
- Safety and Compliance in the Modern Warehouse, Transportation and Logistics Environment by Annah Ngxeketo – Founder and CEO: Mamoja Projects
Warehouse automation aims to automate repetitive and tedious manual tasks in warehouse operations, making manual work less labor intensive and reducing labor costs. It also increases productivity, accuracy and safety.
While the possibilities of warehouse automation are varied and exciting, investing means making tough choices and taking big risks. “Implementing automation technologies in a logistics network is costly and time consuming, with hundreds of possibilities, from the most basic to the most innovative. It is a long-term investment: experts are quick to name the benefits of warehouse automation, but it is also essential to understand and assess the risks.”
CILTSA’s conference is organized in conjunction with the Transport Forum. The sponsors of the event are Acrow, Fumani Holdings, ISB Optimus, Mamoja Trading and Projects, Toyota Material Handling and Tendai Mhlanga Photography. Supporters of the event include CILTSA advocacy organization Women in Logistics and Transport: South Africa (WiLATSA), the African Women in Supply Chain Association and Sincpoint.
