Welcome to Day Two of DC Velocity's coverage of Modex 2018, a material handling, supply chain, and logistics solutions expo presented by MHI. Foot traffic was brisk on the show floor as thousands of attendees from 110 countries checked out the latest supply chain technology and equipment from more than 900 exhibitors.

The show also boasted a strong educational element yesterday. In the opening keynote address, Andrew McAfee from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Sloan School of Management helped attendees foresee how they can "harness the digital future." The keynote supplemented the more than 100 educational sessions that were held on the show floor.
