why don’t I start a blog and it will help me learn more along the way as well as help others learn from what I have learned. As I began to talk about my idea with my peers in the industry and friends the best way I could describe what I wanted to do was to make warehousing sexy.
So that is what I am setting out to do. I am going to bring you a resource that will bring you news, ideas and insights about the future of our industry in a modern way. The New Warehouse will have informative blog posts not only from myself but from other industry experts, video, podcasts and more. There are many great things that I am working to bring to you to give you insight into all of the different technologies and best practices that are out now and will be coming out. When it comes to video think Car and Driver test drives but for forklifts and warehouse robots. (I’m most excited about this!)
And of course, this is all about education and being a resource for you. If there is something in particular you would like to see from The New Warehouse or even something that you feel you might want to contribute, contact us!
