As in the past two years, we once again attended the Forum Automotive Logistics of the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) and the German Logistics Association (BVL) e.V. During the two-day event in Munich, we showed at our stand the latest features of our transport management software WinSped. For example, our new application AppSped, which supports drivers in all processes, from communication to damage documentation.
Not only did we use the forum to introduce our products, but we also learned about the future of the industry and shared with other participants. Under the motto “creating added value – analogue – digital – in real time” the topic was the automation and digitalization of the value added chain. Intelligent networking and data exchange in real time were key points. Bernhard Mattes, President of the German Association of the Automotive Industry, took a look into the near future: “The future of logistics, production and the future of the automobile itself are digital. Artificial intelligence plays a crucial role in the path to automated and driverless driving. “
For us, the largest European industry gathering is an integral part of the calendar every year. In addition to interesting lectures, the exchange with other automotive experts from logistics, IT, packaging, service and consulting companies as well as manufacturers and suppliers is particularly important for us to develop innovative solutions for the future. In addition, we have seen many familiar faces, like the employees of our long-time customer Schnellecke Transport AG & Co. KG. A total of 530 participants and 50 exhibitors came to the BMW world.
