“Fresh food distribution is a race against the clock, with consumer expectations rising around product freshness and fulfillment speed. It’s time to get ahead of the game with automation. Our solutions enable food distributors and grocery retailers to satisfy their customers with fast, fresh, and affordable products—and do so in a way that’s safe, stable, and sustainable.” 

At Modex, Rickard will co-present an MHI-sponsored seminar with fellow MHI AS/RS Industry Group members, titled, “ASRS as a solution for e-commerce, online shopping demands, high transportation costs, supply chain issues, and product shortages”. This exclusive seminar will be held on March 29, in Theater H, from 1:30 PM to 2:15 PM.

“Our recent control in leading all North American operations in partnership with the AGVE Group allows us to further build on Murata Machinery Groups’ long track record of integrating automation and solving customer challenges,”
