2-03| Innovation in logistics

Number1 Logistics Group, Italian leader in integrated logistics for fast moving consumer goods, continues to focus on innovation and invests in a new anthropomorphic robotic repackaging line that will be officially introduced on Wednesday, March 2nd in Parma during the “Innovation in logistics” conference.

In view of the Italian scenario that is experiencing a dull period concerning innovation, since the fifth survey on Italian industrial machinery conducted by UCIMU demonstrates an industrial world made up of obsolete machinery (27% of industrial machines in Italy are over 20 years old and only 13% are under 5 years old), Number1, Italian player and leader in logistics intends to make innovation, and especially robotics, one of its strengths.

Practically, the new system is able to fully automate the repackaging process, from display box forming to their filling with products thanks to the use of anthropomorphic arms.

The introduction of the new robotic repackaging line will also give us the chance to take stock of the innovation conditions in a strategic sector like logistics, thanks to the conference to be held on Wednesday, March 2nd in Parma at the Number1 headquarters in via Forlanini.


Wednesday 2 March 2016
10.00 / 12.30

robotic repackaging

Inbev conquers Sab Miller on the fifth bid

On the fifth bid, Jan du Plessis at the head of Sab Miller and Carlos Brito, Anheuser Busch InBev CEO, shook hands. Thus the world’s largest beer group came to life, able to control one third of the “pale, stout and lager” products consumed in the world. This take-over has a nostalgic feel for us Italians: Peroni is moving on from Sab Miller to the new parent company giant AB InBev manufacturer of Bud and Corona. The French manager of the British beer group, take-over prey, was successful in negotiating continuous upward adjustments to reach the 44 pounds per share in cash, value just over the 39 pounds reserved to those who choose the mix option, made up of cash and share swap.

La Molisana Ferro Pact «You can only win with the supply chain»

Supply chain integration in a sector characterised by increasingly higher production concentration and territorial marketing actions to promote the local farming-food district and compete on the global scale together: La Molisana, the pasta manufacturer that emerged from its ashes to regain its national and international brand profile after the take over by the Ferro group in 2011, is following this strategy. Four generations of millers, the Ferro family purchased the hundred-year old pasta factory after La Molisana, surviving three bankruptcies in four years, “had disappeared from the shelves”, explained Managing Director Giuseppe Ferro.
