Helping companies build & manage world-class supply chains.
Introduction


Material Handling & Logistics helps companies build and manage world-class supply chains — to make, store, move and compete more effectively. It is written exclusively for managers who oversee supply chain, logistics and material handling across America’s manufacturing, distribution and retail sectors.

To help MH&L’s readers keep their knowledge up-to-date, the magazine’s content is enhanced by an Editorial Advisory Board made up of professionals from academia, business associations, project management, military logistics and the readership itself. They work with MHL’s editors to plan in-print and online content as well as in-person events.
