Throughout 2013, Material Handling & Logistics presented accounts of how companies faced every supply chain manager's biggest challenges. Wasted resources, labor inefficiency and unsafe handling environments were common themes, and MH&L's Editorial Advisory Board (See Ask the Experts) took on the challenge of selecting the stories they felt best embodied the spirit of innovation in their solutions. 

On the following pages we revisit those stories and tell you what our judges saw in them:

Make: Towards a Paperless Food Chain

Store: VLMs Match Smoking-Fast Order Processing

Move: Don't Play Chicken with Safety

Compete: Wirtz Beveral Pours Three Warehouses into One DC
