Be a part of shaping efficient and sustainable logistics and transportation management

Efficiency and sustainability remain key themes in logistics this year as well..

Today transport logistics and management are facing various challenges. Those are intensified by the rapid development of global markets, increasing customer demands, and the ever-growing pressure towards more sustainable practices. Two of the crucial levers to effectively address these challenges are route optimization and transport management planning. The adoption of suitable advanced technologies and strategic planning approaches can make logistics processes more efficient and cost-effective but also significantly reduce their environmental impact. 

Tackle these challenges at the Logistics Innovation Technology Days 2024:

  • Driver Shortage: An acute shortage of qualified drivers burdens the industry and increases the pressure to make transport routes as efficient as possible to optimize existing resources.

  • Sustainability goals: The increasing focus on environmental protection and reducing CO2 emissions requires companies to rethink their transport strategies and implement more sustainable solutions.

  • Cost pressures: Rising fuel prices, maintenance costs, and other operational expenses compel companies to seek ways to maximize their transport efficiency while minimizing costs.

Through the integration of innovative solution approaches into route optimization and transport management planning, companies can not only tackle existing challenges but also secure a competitive edge by achieving quicker, more cost-effective, and sustainable results.

The 15th Logistics Innovation Technology Days (LIT-Days) offer an exceptional opportunity to remain updated and share insights on the newest advancements and best practices in this domain.

During our keynotes, panel discussions, and interviews with customers and partners, you'll discover strategies to enhance the efficiency and sustainability of your operations, enabling you to stay ahead of the industry's evolving trends!
