Startups pitch their hottest LogTech ideas to transform global supply chains
From predictive analytics to drone technology, digital technologies are disrupting global supply chains and challenging logistics providers to up their game in shipment visibility and last-mile delivery. Ten startups had the opportunity to pitch their latest ideas at the LogTech Innovation Day, jointly organized by Panalpina and Plug and Play.
LogTech Innovation Day packed a full afternoon with digital insights, including a keynote from Ben Ninio, head of Digital, Syngenta; an industry panel discussion; and presentations from Stefan Karlen, CEO, Panalpina; Saeed Amidi, founder and CEO, Plug and Play; and Luca Graf, head of Digital Innovation, Panalpina.
Ten startups also took the floor and pitched their latest ideas on how to transform supply chains. Here’s a selection of the hottest LogTech trends to watch for.
Panalpina joins Cargo sous terrain initiative aimed at revolutionizing logistics.
Imagine a futuristic world where cargo moves through an underground network of tunnels – automatically, quietly and intelligently enabling just-in-time deliveries. Panalpina is pleased to join Cargo sous terrain (CST), the Swiss-led consortium set to transform logistics and propel the industry into digitalization. As a shareholder, Panalpina will seek representation on the CST supervisory board and adopt a leading role in developing the CST logistics system and sharing expert know-how.
Innovator teams battle it out in Panalpina’s first Kickbox to develop new digital solutions for logistics
Before you can disrupt markets and competitors with breakout innovations, you first need to disrupt yourself.
Innovation is a process of disciplined exploration and experimentation. Moreover, innovation is not something that can sit in a silo, it needs to be part of everyone’s responsibility and mindset. The most successful companies are the ones that embed innovation into all aspects of the business.
In a joint project with Panalpina’s Human Resources, the Panalpina Digital Hub – which explores innovative technologies, develops new digital solutions for customers and engages with digital start-ups – organized the Kickbox to connect with employees in three countries, foster entrepreneurial spirit, develop ideation skills and generate digital innovation pilots.
Vertical Partner at the Biggest Swiss Blockchain Hackathon #SBHACK19
We participated as a supporting partner and designed a problem statement and challenges to be tackled by over 200 hackers from 19 different countries. In the spirit of a hackathon, open innovation and collaboration took place, new connections were forged and a lot of experience shared.
The challenge was: to create a blockchain solution that ensures traceability and authentication of unique products like medications within the pharma supply chain, and to devise standards to enable disparate applications to create and share visible event data, both within and across enterprises.
