Louis Borders, founder and chief executive officer of Home Delivery Service, will make a keynote presentation unveiling a new food home delivery service on November 12 at the 36th IACSC Conference & Expo in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The event is hosted by the International Association for Cold Storage Construction, a member of the Alexandria, Virginia, USA-headquartered Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA).
Borders is also the founder and ceo of HDS Global, an online mall/e-commerce service that consumers use to shop for groceries and general merchandise from the world’s leading retailers. HDS has developed RoboFS™, a software-defined fulfillment system that combines intelligent vision with mobile and articulated robots into what it calls “an integrated, end-to-end solution.”
At the IACSC Conference, Borders will speak about the construction and design elements that are featured in HDS’ home delivery service warehouses. He will also address HDS Global’s model and how it, as well as construction/design groups, will affect the supply chain.
“We are really interested to see how the home delivery service Borders created is impacting the design of warehouses and their supply chain,” said Corey Rosenbusch, president and ceo of the GCCA. “This industry shift could change the way so many of our members do business.”
The 36th IACSC Conference & Expo brings together key players from the temperature-controlled warehousing and logistics construction industry. Leaders from contractor and design-build firms make up the bulk of attendees, in addition to those in charge of refrigeration systems, engineering, and building design and retrofits for cold chain processing and manufacturing facilities, retail stores, and warehousing and logistics companies.
The conference will feature four general sessions focused on key trends and innovations in cold facility design, construction, and maintenance. An expo hall with 41 tabletop exhibitions will showcase companies providing solutions, products and services to support the construction of temperature-controlled facilities including insulation, refrigeration systems, racking, materials handling and more.
