Outstanding model for success: the innovative SSI Carrier has been named one of the "Best of 2018"


Just in time for the large trade fairs in Hanover, Huber Verlag für Neue Medien GmbH has presented outstandingly innovative solutions with the 2018 Industry Award. The crucial criteria when it came to swaying the expert jury was, above all, the ecological, technological, economic, and social benefits of nominated solutions. The patented SSI Carrier pouch sorter system from SSI Schaefer has now officially been named as one of the "Best of 2018" in the "Intralogistics & Production Logistics" category.

This year, the top-class jury again consisted of professors, scientists, industry representatives, and trade journalists. Together they evaluated the nominated products and solutions according to a set list of criteria. After looking at the long-term and overall benefits, it was, above all, progress – meaning innovativeness, product maturity, and a forward-thinking approach – that enabled solutions to qualify for recognition.

The patented SSI Carrier was awarded a place on the "Best of" list at the 2018 Industry Awards, which supports the notion that SSI Schaefer is one of the top brands worldwide when it comes to providing products, systems and full solutions for internal material flows. The recognition of the SSI Carrier is another chapter in the company’s success story when it comes to its flexible overhead conveying systems. The award truly cements SSI Schaefer's market position as a genuine model of success.

"This award is an endorsement of our focus and our long-term investment in developing products and solutions. We developed the SSI Carrier as a direct response to customer demand and this, therefore, puts us in the best position to satisfy the market requirements which are related to omni-channel distribution," claims Michael Mohr, Executive Vice President Sales at SSI Schaefer. "We are very excited about the award and we see it as more than just a positive response to our innovative pouch sorter."
