Swisslog will participate at the 2nd edition of Materials Handling Saudi Arabia on the 28th and 29th of November at the Park Hyatt Jeddah.

The event is expected to draw hundreds of attendees as well as industry professionals and decisions makers.

At the trade show, representatives at Swisslog will meet with business leaders to discuss material handling issues and answer questions related to fast, high-quality distribution and logistical processes.

Alain Kaddoum, general manager, Swisslog Middle East said Materials Handling Saudi Arabia is an important expo for Swisslog given that the company has been active in the region for more than five years.

Some of the company’s recent customer wins include Almarai and Mai Dubai amongst others, including the recently secured new projects in Saudi Arabia.

According to a research study conducted by YouGov, retailers in the KSA state that the Internet of Things (38 percent) and Big Data (34 percent) will have the biggest impact in shaping the industry.

Furthermore, 87 percent of retailers in the UAE and 89 percent in Saudi Arabia who have adopted new automation technologies said they have seen a positive impact on productivity. 

Overall process automation in the Middle East and Africa market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.15% between 2018 and 2023.

At the expo, Alain Kaddoum will conduct a session on November, 28th at 1pm presenting intelligent automation in warehousing and distribution with insights into achieving the highest productivity and accuracy.

He will also participate in a panel discussion conducted on the same day to discuss the latest technologies available in the sector as well as address the key pain points faced by businesses in the region.

“Future-ready warehousing and distribution solutions will enable companies to stay ahead of the competition,” said Kaddoum. “At Swisslog, we are constantly innovating our competitive technology to meet the demands of today’s omni-channel storage and distribution. We are extremely proud to demonstrate the power of big data with Industry 4.0 while laying the foundations for artificial intelligence to achieve new levels of warehouse automation dynamics.”
