For the third time Toyota Material Handling Europe launches a Logistic Design Competition. For the 2018 Logistic Design Competition, Toyota is challenging university students, and those who have recently graduated, to revolutionise the future of package handling and the logistics process. Toyota is searching for package delivery concepts. The concept should solve the problem, it’s yours to design. They challenge you to think about the possibilities of direct delivery to customers, abandoning the idea of the traditional supply chain. To think about how you would optimise the last mile each package delivers to the end customer. And to come up with a logistic solution that is fast, sustainable and most of all: revolutionary. This is your time to make your mark on the package delivery industry and win some cash prizes!
Around 25 million packages are delivered in Europe every day and current delivery processes are nearing peak efficiency, with little room left to improve. Now is the time for a logistics revolution! Share your innovative and sustainable solution for improving the last mile of the package delivery process. Unleash your imagination and submit your idea, complete with sketches for the future of package delivery systems by October 22, 2017. The best solution will win a prize of 5,000 EUR!
