In the recent times, we have seen a lot of development and innovation in the sector of logistics. Companies and startups have been developing solutions to reduce cost, increase efficiency and shorten the delivery process.
By an article in Supply Chain Drive, “The global logistics market, in terms of revenue, is set to expand from US$8.1 trillion in 2015 to US$15.5 trillion by 2023, registering a CAGR of 7.5% from 2015 to 2024. By volume, the market is expected to clock in a 6.0% CAGR from 2016 to 2024.” That implements more and more movement of goods and packages across and a high increase in the online purchase. Hence, innovation and disruption in the logistics sector is a prerequisite.
The Digital.Hub Logistics in Dortmund, supported by the Fraunhofer Institutes for Material Flow and Logistics IML as well as for Software and Systems Engineering ISST, the EffizienzCluster Management GmbH and the Duisburger Hafen AG, is driving the digitization of the logistics industry in Germany – whether goods or Data logistics, transport, corporate or financial logistics. Digital.Hub Logistics creates a highly exciting environment for companies that want to launch potentially promising new digital products on the market.
Hundreds of Startups applied for the competition and only eight were selected for the finals in Dortmund. Out of the eight selected, HOMYHUB was the only Spanish startup. The venue was magnanimous and accompanied by the top companies in the Sector. Executives from UPS, DPD and many more were present to judge the eight startups presenting.
Here are the three winners of the Digital Logistics Awards :
With the NautilusLog app, the start-up supports both the crew on board ships and their management on land. Vessels are tracked and events and tasks are automatically generated. The app reminds, for example, to change the fuel before they reach an emission control area.
The start-up sees itself as booking.com for transport. The one-stop shop pamyra.de is a combination of independent price information and a simple booking process.
