Logistics Innovation in Europe

posted 2 Apr 2014, 01:38 by Margot Forcolin   [ updated 2 Apr 2014, 01:49 ]

LOGINN participate to the internation congress LOGISTICS INNOVATION IN EUROPE. 
The congress,  organised by DINALOG and the SoCool@EU, took place at the Passenger Terminal Amsterdam on the 1st of April 2014.
The program, that can be downloaded here, offered a series of interesting insights on the challenges logistics is facing today.

Accordingly with Prof. Dr. Alan C. McKinnon, Head of Logistics and Dean of Programs at the Kühne Logistics University, the three main issues are 
  • Since the big players are already involved in research and innovation the challenge is now to involve small players like SMEs. 
  • Research results are still too academic not addressing the day-to-day issues, the challenge is now to put more effort in applied research.
  • Collaboration is the key, adding the EU dimension is essential
and those are actually the challenges that LOGINN is trying to address.
