Industrial journalist TR Cutler recently interviewed Carol Miller, MHI Chief Marketing Officer about material handling trends, the impact of COVID on the industry, and the upcoming MODEX 2022 event in Atlanta from March 28-31. Read the full article in the March issue of Manufacturing Outlook.
Miller has more than 29 years of marketing and communications experience in the materials handling industry. She leads the marketing outreach for MHI, including its MODEX and ProMat events.
Miller shared, “When I joined MHI, material handling was seen as a more siloed function within the four walls of the facility and MHI reflected that. Most of our members didn’t really see their place in the greater supply chain. What has surprised me the most is how that has changed, and material handling is now seen as really the engine that drives the supply chain ecosystem and how all movement and handling of material and product – whether inside or outside the four walls of a facility – is all part of a supply chain ecosystem that is highly interdependent at every link in the chain.”
“The pandemic has changed so much for our industry. Supply chain has always been an industry in constant change and evolution, but now that change has become more revolutionary due to the disruption caused by the pandemic. As firms are seeking solutions to mitigate this disruption and risk, MHI members are leading the way with this change with solutions that make operations faster and more accurate, transparent, and agile,” added Miller.
