Artificial intelligence in intralogistics
Learning what we don't understand
Moderated by: Prof. Dr. Dr. h. c. Michael ten Hompel, Managing Director, Fraunhofer Institute of Material Flow and Logistics (IML), Chair of Materials Handling and Warehousing, TU Dortmund University
Some challenges in logistics are already better addressed with artificial intelligence, and some problems will be solved only with the help of AI. Whether it’s organizing a swarm of mobile robots, sifting through large databases, or calculating the next batch: Many things in intralogistics can only be inadequately described with formulas or managed with human instinct. This is where AI can help by learning things we don't understand. This forum shows how ChatGPT and similar technology will transform work for humans and machines alike.

Transport and shipping packaging
How to best leverage the benefits of sustainability
Moderated by: Sandra Lehmann, editor, LOGISTIK HEUTE, HUSS-VERLAG GmbH
More and more consumers are demanding recyclable, environmentally friendly packaging. Logistics managers also reap economic and strategic advantages from low-impact or multi-use packaging, but many companies still find it challenging to truly leverage these benefits in their business operations. The LogiMAT trade forum “Transport and shipping packaging—How to best leverage the benefits of sustainability” looks at how manufacturers, retailers, and service providers can make sustainable packaging management a reality.

Logistics as a trailblazer of the circular economy
Paradigm shift for a sustainable future
Moderated by: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Johannes Fottner, Chair in Materials Handling, Material Flow, Logistics at the Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, Technical University of Munich
The transformation of industry and society to a carbon-neutral and sustainable future is the greatest challenge of the 21st century. One key element of this transition is the establishment of a circular economy—where single-use items and short product lifecycles yield to circular business models and closed cycles for raw materials and products. In this forum, experts from the academic and business communities explain how this process of transformation can succeed and the key role of logistics.

Run for talents: training to win?
Professional development strategies to address the shortage of skilled workers
Moderated by: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Robert Schulz, Director, Institute of Mechanical Handling and Logistics (IFT), University of Stuttgart
In logistics, competition for the best minds is heating up. Good applicants have a choice and opt for the companies with the most attractive benefits. As their responsibilities constantly evolve, they count on ongoing professional development for the skills they need to play a role in shaping the future of logistics.
That’s why professional development opportunities are right up there with financial incentives as a key factor in retaining new employees. Interdisciplinary formats that employees can complete alongside their employment are a particularly attractive strategy.
