The Smart Logistics Challenge. How to deliver, tomorrow

Smart Logistics Challenge: calling all young talents to transform our industry

The material handling industry has been a silent hero in our economy and society. Even as a true enabler of e-commerce and Industry 4.0, it still remains unknown to many of us. This is why we at Toyota Material Handling are reaching out and inviting students to get to know our industry – we will need the best and brightest young minds to help us achieve our goal as a sector to ‘deliver tomorrow’!

‘The Smart Logistics Challenge’ is an initiative designed to connect with university students by giving them the chance to share their ideas on the most exciting trends transforming the industry. We’re covering three case studies: Enablers of E-commerce, Cobotics in Logistics 4.0, or Logistics in a Sharing Economy – each one requiring a forward-looking and solution-oriented approach.

Are you an engineering or business student? Then it’s you we’re looking for! Because a holistic mindset and diverse skill set are key to stay ahead of the competition in this industry…

The challenge is now open to all European students, and you can send in your entry until 30 March. 30 finalists will continue to the next round, where they will be mentored by industry experts to complete their concepts. So make sure you enter in time!

The six winners will receive a paid traineeship with one of the partner companies, and even a VIP Invitation to the FEM Congress – the leading European congress of the material handling industry. An awards ceremony will shine a spotlight on the winning achievements in front of industry leaders, while special events like the CEO Lunch, Gala Dinner and cultural tour will make this trip a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to put the students on the fast track for a successful career in this dynamic industry. Are you up for it?
