AMHSA Automation Material Handling Systems Training Seminar – 12th February 2020, Harborough Innovation Centre

Arguably the UK’s leading authority on logistics automation, AMHSA held their Training Workshop in February at the Harborough Innovation Centre. Designed to cover the fundamentals of automated materials handling systems, the event once again proved popular amongst delegates who gave the event a glowing report in feedback. The event continues to prove very popular in the AMHSA calendar and proved to be informative to all newcomers to our industry and experienced colleagues, alike.

Delegates are offered introductions, familiarisation or explanations of the traditional or the contemporary and latest state-of-the-art solutions being introduced within the sector. These solutions are designed to tackle and overcome the automation introduction obstacles in supply chains. The seminar provides comprehensive understanding and awareness of the products available, for designers and engineers.

AMHSA Training Event – Fire Safety Training (April 2020) – Cancelled

It is with sincere regret that due to the current Public Health situation that we have taken the difficult decision to cancel this event.

The decision has not been reached lightly. We take our responsibility to public health and safety extremely seriously and the health and safety of our members, delegates and visitors is of paramount importance.

We apologise for any disappointment that this may cause but trust that you will understand.
