Dematic, supplier of logistics systems for the factory, warehouse and the distribution center, is offering a series of Warehouse Logistics Conferences for 2011. The one day event, titled “Get the most from your operation,” is focused on the operation and maintenance of materials handling systems in the warehouse and distribution center.  The conference will offer presentations on how to improve the performance of automated/mechanized material handling technology, controls and software, as well as increase warehouse operational performance and employee productivity. The next Warehouse Logistics Conference will be held in Ontario, Calif., on Wednesday, February 16, 2011.

Attendees can select from three session tracks: warehouse operations, maintenance/modernization, and software/controls.  Participants will learn how to improve equipment performance with upgrade kits, will review best practice maintenance methods, and will see recommendations on how to extend the life of mechanized/automated material handling systems.  Furthermore, warehouse process improvement and best practice solutions for order fulfillment will be presented. Managers and engineers that design, operate and maintain warehouses or distribution centers would benefit from attending the event.

Warehouse logistics education is usually provided at the historic “Red Schoolhouse” on the Dematic engineering campus in Grand Rapids, Mich.  With the Warehouse Logistics Conference road show, Dematic brings the informational content taught at the Red Schoolhouse, to cities around the USA.
