May-June 2022

I recently returned from three days in Atlanta at the Modex trade show. Although advertised as a supply chain event, it’s really a materials handling automation show with a handful of logistics providers thrown in for good measure. Heading out the door to the airport, I had no idea what to expect. The two-year absence from the trade show and conference scene had me, and many of the individuals I spoke to before the show opened, wondering what’s next—not just for the show but for operations in general. If the turnout and the enthusiasm is any indication, I think supply chain is in pretty good shape these days, despite the disruptions we’ve all lived through. The show was packed, and attendees were on the hunt for solutions to optimize their manufacturing, order fulfillment and delivery operations. Ultimately, that energy is going to turn into POs, and those POs will be managed by procurement. It’s going to be another busy year.
