MODEX 2016


 Modex 2016, Atlanta, GA

Modex was held in Atlanta, GA at the beginning of April. If you haven't been, this is a great networking and education opportunity. Spartan Logistics was proud to join our networking partner, Palisades Logistics, at the Georgia World Congress Center to speak with all who came by the booth.

While Spartan was at Modex we looked to connect with representatives from all aspects of the 3pl world: manufacturers, materials handling equipment companies, technology specialists, and many more. Spartan Logistics specializes in warehouse services, transportation, inventory control, and order fulfillment. Within each of these realms there are constant developments. We learned about new technology, evolving theory on improved efficiencies, and specialty capabilities. When it comes to being prepared, no tool compares to knowledge of what is available.

Continued learning may not be a Core Value at Spartan Logistics, but continuous learning serves our customers' best interests and is a building block for earning respect. Learning should not stop after graduation; every day is a chance to learn something new, improve, and stay at the top of your game.

Modex was a fun, information packed week full of opportunity. Check out the interview with Palisades Logistics about our philosophy. We will share a few lessons learned here on our blog over the next two weeks, but hope to see you there in person in 2018!
