Lorenzo Martinelli, RITE-HITE
In the light of your attendance in 2015, what elements convinced you to return to INTRALOGISTICA ITALIA 2018?
The 2015 edition was very positive for Rite-Hite in terms of visibility and contacts, as the Italian branch was actually in its start-up phase. The objective of participating in INTRALOGISTICA ITALIA 2018 is without doubt the assertion of the brand and the strengthening of the business increasing its turnover catchment.
Can you give us some details about the solutions that you will present at the second edition of INTRALOGISTICA ITALIA in 2018?
The solutions we will present during the second edition of INTRALOGISTICA ITALIA will be based on our four production areas. In other words, the loading bay with all its safety systems logistics, internal warehouse safety, work environment separation and energy saving.
INTRALOGISTICA ITALIA is positioned within The Innovation Alliance platform with PLAST, IPACK-IMA, MEAT-TECH, and PRINT4ALL. What are the advantages of this for you?
The fact that Intralogistica is positioned within an even greater platform is an advantage in terms of the creation of new and increasingly stimulating synergies, as well as the possibility of benchmarking against a more ample and diversified demand.
In your opinion, what will logistics look like in the future? Looking at the market figures for the sector and future forecasts, what are your expectations?
