MODEX is Coming. Hannibal Will Be There.

Next week, Hannibal Industries and Metalsistem will be attending one of the biggest supply chain events of the year. That’s right, it’s time once again for the MODEXShow.

From March 17 through 20, the who’s who of the supply chain industry will converge upon the World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia, to show off their latest and greatest products, as well as participate in seminars, forums and dozens of other events.


If you are one of the millions of people who work in the supply chain industry, attending this show can be a beneficial way to streamline your business. More than 800 vendors will be exhibiting, from industry, commerce, government and everyone will be proudly showing off itsnew products for 2014.

There’s a lot of buzz this year on the 180,000 square foot show floor, and a lot of people are talking about Italy’s Metalsistem. In an established industry, it’s rare to see a brand that is boldly designing new products and spending the time and money to reinvent the wheel; but Metalsistem is a brand with a reputation for innovation. Two of Metalsistem’s key shelving units – Super 1-2-3 and Unirack – have made significant waves in the industry’s past, so it’s exciting to see what they have up its sleeve for 2014.

Of course, Hannibal Industries will be there, as always. This year we are proud to sponsor a key seminar. Engineer and TubeRack inventor, Andrew Kirby will explain how new groundbreaking developments in rack allow for greater flexibility when encountering seismic activity, and how innovations in the materials handling industry allow for lower freight costs and reduced time-to-market for the consumer. Don’t miss this event:

In addition, there are several other seminars offered, that can help you reshape and rethink your business. Some of the more highly anticipated on-floor seminars include:
