At ProMat 2017 in Chicago, the Material Handling Institute (MHI) released The Material Handling & Logistics US Roadmap 2.0. The Roadmap is the result of a comprehensive, seven-month study of what supply chains will look like by the year 2030. This study involved more than 200 supply chain industry thought leaders. Steve Hopper was one of the co-authors of the final report, which covers four fundamental aspects of the supply chain industry: technology, the consumer, the workforce, and logistics infrastructure. In this webinar, Steve will present a summary of the study’s findings and offer specific recommendations on how supply chain-dependent businesses can prepare to meet the significant challenges they will face on the road to 2030.
