What You Will Learn

With seismic activity on the rise globally, it is more important than ever that warehouses prepare themselves for the worst. As the global economy grows, it is equally important for companies working within the supply chain with international reach to be aware of laws and ordinances that require infrastructure to handle weather patterns that vary. Hannibal Industries and Twinlode Corporation have teamed to present applicable guiding principles attendees should consider when building food and beverage warehouse and distribution center facilities in this modern era. Attendees will learn how to approach projects armed with the most stringent guidelines for optimum safety.

Key Takeaways

• How to effectively navigate permitting requirements when building food and beverage distribution center facilities in geographic areas that are susceptible to seismic activity
• How innovations in racking have resulted in material handling systems that are stronger, smarter and exceed new seismic regulations globally, while providing substantial cost savings in warehouses
