About the Program

This seminar is a combined effort of the Material Handling and Transportation & Logistics Technology Committees. The program is developed to address the complexities of moving steel safely, effectively and efficiently. The steel industry is changing at an alarming rate and the focus of this seminar is to ensure the movement of steel changes along with it. The program will address the development of advanced material handling methods and technologies for within and outside of the steel plant. In addition to classroom instruction, attendees will receive the added bonus of three unique tours. These tours have been arranged to share experience and expertise in material handling. The tours will be at the UPS Worldport, which is the largest fully automated package handling facility in the world; the Amazon Fulfillment Center; and Jeffboat, which is one of the nation’s largest inland barge and shipbuilder.

Who Should Attend

Anyone who has responsibility for the above, including: plant managers; material handling and shipping engineers, planners, technical engineers, operators, and management; safety, service, design and cost engineers; third-party mill groups; suppliers and customers.
