TransportLAB Challenge(s) 2017

Are you also fascinated by sustainable, eco-friendly innovation in transport and logistics?

Then participate in our 2017 online challenge, focusing on the connection between Logistics and Mobility.

Theme: Logistics Mobility

Logistics are characterized by strict planning, deviations are costly and not wanted. However, nowadays deviations are more rule then exception. 

  • Is it possible to make logistics more flexible, more real-time and mobile?
  • What problems do we face and what solutions are at hand or can be developed?
  • Can we create sustainable and real-time logistics in collaboration with smart Talking Traffic initiatives?

Who can participate?

Not just for data crunchers but also for other experts (and of course students/young engineers, alone or as a team) that can contribute to our challenges.
