“transport logistic is the most important meeting place for the logistics industry and provides startups with an optimal possibility to get into the international market. On the other hand, startups continue to fuel the industry's innovative strength,” Caroline Thiemt, Exhibition Director of transport logistic, stated. Approximately 20 startups are to exhibit at the trade fair. “The 300 square meter “start.hub Logistics” will consist of a stage, a bar and a lounge and be placed in the middle of Hall B2.”
The “start.hub Logistics” is a collaborative project of transport logistic and DVV Media Group. Bitkom e.V., Carousel Logistics Ltd., Digital Hub Logistics GmbH and EffizienzCluster Management GmbH will also be represented in the jury. “Startups in particular can help medium-sized as well as large logistics companies to come up with innovative ideas and technologies without the companies having to set up a huge digital team right away,” Julia Miosga explained, Area Manager of Trade & Logistics, Bitkom—Federal Association for Information Economics, Telecommunications and New Media. “The transport logistic trade fair is the established meeting place for various stakeholders in the field of transport and logistics. The start.hub Logistics fulfills this performance promise perfectly,” Oliver Detje stated, Publishing Director, DVV Media Group.
