A 2022 edition focused on CSR
Since environmental concerns are more than ever at the heart of all debates, the red thread of SITL 2022 is entitled “At the heart of companies’ CSR strategies”. The sector is already very committed via, for example, the emergence of eco-packaging, carbon-neutral warehouses or its interest in mass modes. The objective remains to accelerate the deployment of new solutions such as the networking of warehouses, the ecological organization to allow greater pooling and massification, to develop the generalization of clean vehicles (electric or hydrogen).
The 2022 edition will welcome more than 500 exhibitors who will present their solutions and their responses to the CSR objectives of companies allowing the sector to evolve and in particular the working methods of professionals. The show will reflect a sector whose players are aiming for a double challenge: accelerating digital and ecological transitions and improving their performance.
The Showroom 360 and thematic areas:
An experience in the 360 Showroom built in partnership with TIMCOD will be offered to participants who will be able to discover the intralogistics of tomorrow through the Warehouse of the Future, the Drone Valley and the Test Circuit.
Laurence Gaborieau, specifies “The Showroom 360 is a demonstration area for innovative solutions extending over 400 m² representing the entire warehouse value chain with 6 themes: eco-responsible, automated, secure, human, connected, efficient. It was important to show live the efficiency of the logistics solutions presented at the SITL.”
