Home' MHD Supply Chain Solutions : MHD Jan-Feb 2018 Contents Charles Pauka
fter many years of wearing the comfortable old look, we decided that as
MHD Supply Chain Solutions magazine is the only publication remaining
in Australia to represent what is fast becoming (has become?) a vibrant,
dynamic and essential industry, the magazine could do with some refreshing to
reflect the vibrant liveliness of its subject matter.
Content-wise I have always made a conscious effort to report on and reflect
the latest innovations and developments in the supply chain world. I do so by
encouraging the leading thinkers, practitioners and researchers of industry best
practice and theory to put pen to paper, to explain and expand on the latest
knowledge and information.
This way I hope to bring you the vibrancy and variety that will encourage you to,
in your scarce free time, pick up the magazine and catch up with the latest on the
logistics front. We hope that the new look will inspire you to do so just that little
Let me know what you think!
FORKLIFT SURVEY: CELEBRATING WITH A BIGGER, BETTER PRIZE
Our bi-annual Forklift Survey is on again, and to celebrate its fifth instance, we
have decided to boost the prize to encourage more of our readers to enter and give
us your valued opinions.
The MHD/Transport and Logistics News Forklift Survey is an important
facilitator of practical information between those who invest in and use the
materials handling equipment and the suppliers of said equipment. Your
purchasing and usage patterns allow suppliers to fine-tune their machines,
services and supply options, which will inevitably result in benefitting those who
matter most: you.
We are also keen to reflect the important contribution the materials handling
industry makes to those less fortunate than ourselves, and so decided to split the
new, generous prize money two ways. The winner will not only get a $1,000 travel
voucher to spend as they wish, but we will also donate $1,000 cash to the charity
of the (same) winner’s choice. The winner will be drawn at random from the list
of those who have completed the survey and elected to take part in the draw.
So enter now! Visit www.TandLnews.com.au and click on one of the Forklift

THE GOODS FOR
Bickford’s Group Warehouse Manager, Rhett Glanville, says
he would be lost without his AGVs. For the past five years, the
Adelaide-based manufacturer has been using a fleet of AGVs to
distribute its iconic beverages. Working around the clock, the AGVs
collect finished goods from production and then transport, store
and stage loads for despatch in the DC. The AGVs communicate
with each other to optimise efficiency, charge themselves when
batteries run low, facilitate a rolling stocktake, have virtually
eliminated damage to stock and storage systems, provide a safe
working environment, and delivered an ROI of just 2.5 years.
