The renewed recognition by the readership is a great encouragement and shows that we are keeping up with the developments of our time with our product portfolio and offer solutions for today's challenges," says Marco Gebhardt, CEO.
"The large number of votes submitted shows that despite – or perhaps because of – the Corona pandemic and the resulting absence of exhibitions, the interest of intralogistics responsible in new and innovative products is huge. I heartily congratulate all the winners on this great achievement. This is the best award one can receive, coming from the customers, our readers, and users, who represent the toughest jury in the world. In this sense, congratulations!", says Martin Schrüfer, Editor-in-Chief of materialfluss.
