Managing Director of IT and Logistics & Distribution,
Technology is revolutionizing the way we move things. Whether it’s across the floor of a warehouse or all the way across the country, big data, robotics, autonomous vehicles and drones are making logistics and distribution better, and it’s happening in Ohio.
The 2018 Ohio Conference on Freight: >>Fast Forward Freight, to be held August 15 through 17 in Cincinnati, will explore the future of logistics.
