Presented By: Bob Trebilcock

Executive Editor, Modern Materials Handling Magazine 



This business case based presentation looks at the changing role of the distribution center in the technology driven 21st Century.  DC’s were once looked at as a necessary evil and a cost of doing business.  They have evolved into state of the art fulfillment centers that enable a company's go-to-market strategies and fulfill the promises marketing and sales representatives make to customers.  This evolution has been made possible by a new generation of order fulfillment software systems and an increase in the use of automation. 


Bob will look at the trends driving this change and some of the technologies making it possible through business case examples of 6 companies leading the way.  Bob’s expert insight is a product of his daily work interviewing industry experts and reporting on the evolution of the modern supply chain and cutting edge trends.


Bob Trebilcock is the executive editor of Modern Materials Handling Magazine and the editorial director of Supply Chain Management Review. He has been writing about issues related to materials handling and logistics for Modern Materials Handling for 30 years.
