Times of uncertainty. Times that demand strength. Times that, above all, require cooperation.
In this complex intertwined fabric that is the world in which we live, we are faced with one common enemy: COVID-19.
In the battle against this virus, most people around the world have been forced to change their daily routines, affecting them in more ways than one.
As we know, it is through adversity that we grow. It is trying times that show us our vulnerabilities and push us to seek new solutions.
It is an opportunity to do better. To be better.
As I read the news, I am humbled at the amount of people and companies taking on the challenges and doing what they can do to help. Companies like Hanes and GAP, who are using their factory resources to make masks or protective equipment for health care workers; companies like Crocs
who are sending free pairs of shoes to health care workers; car companies like GM, Ford and Tesla offering to use their plants to build ventilators; or even the French luxury firm Louis Vuitton using their perfume production lines to make hand sanitizer!
Like these, there are MANY others.
As we continue moving forward in these times of uncertainty, SDI will continue prioritizing people’s health and well-being. We are doing everything possible to create the safest working environment, which will keep our community safer.
At whichever scale possible, I hope we continue being better to each other in order to make our communities stronger for the years to come.
Stay safe. Stay strong.

THE SPEED OF THINGS: HOW KEEPING YOUR DC STRATEGY AGILE IS KEY
This year’s SDI Executive Logistics Forum was held on February 10th and 11th, and it was another successful one for the books! This international logistics and distribution event was held in Las Vegas, NV, and it had the participation of prominent exhibitors and top executives.
This event was designed to share information, exchange experiences in the DC, and go over the latest global tendencies in the industry.
The supply chain, manufacturing and distribution trade show, MODEX, took place March 8, where we participated as one of the leaders in the materials handling industry. This four-day show took place in Atlanta, Georgia, and it brought attendees in from all over the world to see the latest technologies.
This year, SDI showcased its new goods-to-man solution “Enzo,” an AGV that moves seamlessly throughout the DC.
What are AGVs?
They are Automated Guided Vehicles that, through various methods, move products from one place to another in the DC. It is through these autonomous movements that they are able to generate a “goods-to-person” method of operation, which would be impossible in any other setting. This minimizes the repetitive work and long walks for people.
Why are they in right now?
AGV technology isn’t new. Its first models dating back more than 30 years! However, their limited autonomous operating capacity, made it difficult to attain a justifiable ROI in most cases. But this last decade has brought us great advances in modernizing the guiding systems, making them more adaptable. These past few years have also brought us greater connectivity and integration to Warehouse Management Systems– exponentially increasing the possibilities within this solution.
