Forum Digitalization Transport & Logistics

Digitalization meets logistics

Norderstedt, June 25, 2017 – Sensor systems, block chains, artificial intelligence: digitalization is becoming a key factor in making companies fit for the future. To come out ahead in global competition, a logistics company has to be fast, sure, and reliable – including with regard to price competition. A seamless, transparent supply chain, optimized route utilization, and on-time carriage using multiple modes of transport are absolutely necessary if commercial enterprises, carriers, and haulers, as well as companies involved in transshipment and local public transport, are to meet the growing demands of their customers.

Lufthansa Industry Solutions’ Forum Digitalization Transport & Logistics examines which technologies are set to change the industry and how they are already affecting business models and processes today. The Forum’s lectures and panel discussions enable the participants to gain in-depth knowledge of the world of these new technologies and meet the challenges of digitalization.

The topics:

  • The heart of the forum are the lectures in parallel tracks addressing the thematic blocks of “Transport and Logistics”, “Technology”, and “The Digital Work Environment”.

  • In his keynote speech, Pascal Matzke, Vice President of the market research institute Forrester Research, reports on digitization, current trends, and new technologies in the transport and logistics industries.
  • How is digitalization changing the transport and logistics industry? Industry experts pose this question from business and science in the “Digitalization Meets Logistics” panel discussion.
