The November edition of Supply Chain Digital is hot off the digital press, just click in the top right hand corner of this page to peruse our offerings.

If you are in need of a lift then we have just the job with a feature on the dependable warehouse workhorses, forklift trucks. However, manufacturer Jungheinrich takes a serious look at this inanimate element of your workforce, asking “are you getting the best deal from your forklift supplier?”

Following that we have an interesting take on Sales and Operation Planning (S&OP), as the CEO of online retailer takes us through the application of the well known integrated business management process to his unique operation.

Following the theme of unique angles on well established logistics processes, we have an expert from leading Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software company Epicor, who feels that ERP – integrated into supply chain operations around the globe – could have more of a role in enabling better customer experience than it has so far. In addition, we have a look at the evolution of online tracking in global supply chains.

A read of the company profile section will provide insight into numerous and varied logistics companies from all four corners of the world, including a report on Austrian intralogistics innovators, Knapp AG, who have several times revolutionised the world of the warehouse. (Click here for a video on our website demonstrating one of Knapp's latest exciting innovations) 

Happy reading.
