The growth of towns and big cities poses major challenges for logistics - not only in terms of transport flows but also with regard to storage and transhipment capacities. At the same time, the strong population growth is leading to the development of land for residential purposes in close vicinity to industrial and logistics operations. The increasing volume of CEP activities is also creating additional demand for logistics premises in inner city locations. As a result, these properties are being developed in an environment characterised by increasing conflict over social, ecological and economic interests. Which technological concepts, new business models or cooperation and operator models have the potential to resolve these conflicting interests? Are there any international best practices or experiences that Europe and Germany can learn and benefit from in this respect?

In the context of digitisation, virtually all companies are trying to pinpoint the strategies and concrete solutions that will be key to their future success. The precise benefits of digitisation are often unclear. This also applies to technological "evolution" in the warehouse: many companies in Germany are faced with the challenge of identifying suitable new warehouse technologies. There are a wide range of established and new technologies that are available, but companies often find it difficult to assess the value added resulting from their use. The BVL working group "Digitisation in Warehouse Logistics" has identified warehouse technologies, evaluated their benefits and will be presenting its findings in a dialogue with users and providers of innovative technologies.

A digital logistics start-up is founded somewhere in the world every five days. The innovative business models of these young, agile companies offer technology-driven solutions that address the entire logistics value added chain. These start-ups are working on the digitisation of freight forwarding – from long-distance transports all the way through to warehousing, contract logistics and last-mile delivery. Their solutions use the high number of transactions and the large data volumes in the sector as the basis for the development of growth and innovation strategies. What opportunities does this create for industry and the logistics sector? What role can collaboration platforms and data exchange platforms play in cooperation between established companies and start-ups? Inspiring speakers, demos and pitch sessions in a dynamic setting invite participants to forge new connections and bring new opportunities to light.
