    E-trucks on the long haul - facts, figures and anecdotes from the pilot to implementation

    Electromobility is seen as a building block of the transport revolution. But does this also work in the transport market when it comes to loading and distributing goods with a total weight of 40 tons? How do shippers and freight forwarders deal with e-trucks, what opportunities and challenges are there? What insights can be gained from practical use on the road?
    BASF Coatings GmbH and Koch International, who have tested the use of e-trucks on long-distance routes and implemented them based on data and facts, are asking themselves these questions.

    The following content is covered in the article:

    • Background and reason for the initiative
    • Practical experience of the dos and don'ts of implementation
    • Insights into what is already possible in 2024 and what is not
    • Economic and qualitative considerations
    • Operational anecdotes from piloting to implementation

    10:45 Real-Time Inventory Tracking by collaborating Warehouse Execution of AMR & Human Driven Lifttrucks (HDL)!

    No more either/or: the integration of autonomous mobile robots (AMR) and human driven lifttrucks (HDL) marks the beginning of a new era in material flow management.

    It is not a substitution, but a transformative collaboration between man and machine that increases efficiency and operational transparency. IdentPro is at the forefront of this development, transforming conventional forklift trucks into intelligent, connected objects that not only generate valid, real-time data, but also execute AI-driven transport orders, significantly increasing efficiency.

    Discover more about the diverse possibilities of intelligent warehouse management in this masterclass with Dr. Martin Welp. Learn how this leads to optimized planning for managers, partners and client companies, improving both operational efficiency and strategic decision making.

    Collaborative Logistics Award: Auszeichnung für vertrauensvolle Zusammenarbeit in der Logistik

    The Digitalization | Processes and Standards Commission of the DSLV German Freight Forwarding and Logistics Association will present the Collaborative Logistics Award for the first time at the Logistics Summit 2024. The award recognizes individuals, companies or organizations that are particularly committed to better and trusting collaboration in the logistics industry.

     


    Trust as the key to digitalization

     


    Trust plays a central role in the digitalized world of logistics. Only through close cooperation between all players - from freight forwarders and warehouse operators to shippers and customers - can the potential of digitalization be fully exploited.
    The Collaborative Logistics Award therefore recognizes exemplary initiatives/ideas that, for example:

    Promote transparency and data exchange in the supply chain,
    Establish collaborative processes and platforms,
    Develop common standards and interfaces,
    Implement confidence-building measures and security concepts.


    With the Collaborative Logistics Award, the Commission emphasizes the importance of collaboration in the logistics industry and supports innovative solutions based on trust.

    14:00 AI turbo: The next generation of IT bots

    Until now, IT bots have been able to take over repeatable, rule-based tasks from humans, such as creating customer orders or transferring address data between different systems. To do this, the data had to be clearly structured in systems or tables. With AI, bots are now becoming intelligent: they can recognise data in documents themselves and then process it directly, e.g. read delivery notes and record them in SAP systems. Kathrin Kronberg uses practical examples to show how you can use intelligent IT bots to support and relieve employees in logistics.

    Thesen am Tresen - The STILL Logistics Talk

    Automated - and then what? 
    Industry is automating its intralogistics, and there are now many innovative solutions on the market. Euphoric about the possibilities offered by the new technologies, those responsible often land hard - once the start button has been pressed. Many a successfully launched flagship project turns out to be an expensive work in progress in the years that follow. And customers are often left stranded when it comes to more complex issues such as process changes or mixed automated fleets.
    It is important to set the right course. Experts discuss the pitfalls and success factors of post-automation. What mistakes are made? What role does service play? How do you ensure scalability and networking? And what should you avoid at all costs so that the tempting plug & play does not suddenly turn into a costly plug & pay?

    Panel discussion

    Thesen am Tresen - The STILL Logistics Talk

    Hydrogen - the new fuel for forklift trucks? 
    For a long time, diesel was the fuel of choice for forklift trucks. It wasn't great for the climate, but the machines performed enormously well. Over time, electric vehicles became powerful enough to replace most diesel trucks. But there is another alternative for storing electrical energy - fuel cells. They have been successfully tested in customer projects for years. Filling stations and charging processes are safe. Despite this, there are still only a few companies that rely on hydrogen for internal transport. Why is that? Will hydrogen soon come out of its niche?

    11:30 Learn from the success of others: How TeamViewer customers master increased productivity and reduced error rates in their logistics processes

    To improve warehouse productivity, more and more companies rely on digital solutions to support their operations – specifically vision picking. This technology allows companies to react to market changes quickly, deploy staff flexibly, and mitigate a number of challenges, such as the need for constant process optimization, rising order fulfilment complexity, fluctuating market needs, and labour shortages. Changing to pick-by-vision processes marks a pivotal moment in operational strategy, spotlighting the shift towards industrial augmented reality (AR) to overhaul traditional manual logistics operations. The transition from a predominantly paper-based system to a fully-digital framework raises intriguing questions: What drove our customers’ decision to embrace digital transformation in their logistics? What tangible benefits and efficiencies have been realized in their warehouse operations?

    In this presentation, Julian Doelfs will show you:

    How TeamViewer and our vision picking solution supports companies in mastering their digital warehouse journey.
    How vision picking technology works and which advantages it brings to manual warehousing processes.
    The critical importance of a well-structured change management strategy in driving adoption of new technology such as industrial AR.
    Practical guidance for initiating a vision picking project, and insights into how to get started with your own vision picking project right away.

Automated - and then what? 
Industry is automating its intralogistics, and there are now many innovative solutions on the market. Euphoric about the possibilities offered by the new technologies, those responsible often land hard - once the start button has been pressed. Many a successfully launched flagship project turns out to be an expensive work in progress in the years that follow. And customers are often left stranded when it comes to more complex issues such as process changes or mixed automated fleets.
It is important to set the right course. Experts discuss the pitfalls and success factors of post-automation. What mistakes are made? What role does service play? How do you ensure scalability and networking? And what should you avoid at all costs so that the tempting plug & play does not suddenly turn into a costly plug & pay?

Hydrogen - the new fuel for forklift trucks? 
For a long time, diesel was the fuel of choice for forklift trucks. It wasn't great for the climate, but the machines performed enormously well. Over time, electric vehicles became powerful enough to replace most diesel trucks. But there is another alternative for storing electrical energy - fuel cells. They have been successfully tested in customer projects for years. Filling stations and charging processes are safe. Despite this, there are still only a few companies that rely on hydrogen for internal transport. Why is that? Will hydrogen soon come out of its niche? Does it make sense for suppliers and users to be open to new technologies? Renowned experts report on projects, funding issues and challenges. New information on a not so new topic.
