WORLD OF INDUSTRIES 5/2020

EDITORIAL The new heroes

EDITORIAL The new heroes in the fight against coronavirus 1.5 μm 10 kHz Dear readers, The world is still in the throes of a rapidly spreading pandemic, with devastating consequences for the economy and society at large. And so people are longing for an effective vaccine that will finally bring salvation. Driven by this hope, they tend to blank out the fact that a vaccine does not herald the end of the battle against Covid-19, but rather the beginning. For this vaccine’s journey from the laboratory to mass production and then to people – and we’re talking billions – in the furthest corners of the Earth, will demand a miracle of logistics. To accomplish such a deed, we will have to rely on the expertise and know-how of experts and specialist firms. Just like the scientists advising governments now, it will then be these logistical experts who keep the public informed and, ultimately, determine the principles by which we are guided. The intralogistics sector is well equipped for this challenge, is flexible in structure, and highly innovative. You can find proof of this in the latest issue of World of Industries. Here, we report on a multifunction picker that is designed not just for distribution, but can also function as an assistant in hospitals. A newly developed, compact crossbelt sorter, designed for Courier, Express and Parcel services, will be an indispensable aid in sorting and distributing batches of the vaccine. I have no doubt that logisticians will take on the challenge of global vaccine distribution and give us the benefit of all their expertise, so that the medicine will find its way even to the ends of the Earth.
