The »Team warehouse logistics« is celebrating its anniversary - be there!


As every year, the »Team warehouse logistics« of the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics IML invites all participants of the »WMS database« to a digital network meeting.

This year's participants' meeting will take place on 29 October 2020 under the motto »20 years of warehouse logistics - A logistics platform in change« in a digital setting. The »Team warehouse logistics« celebrates its anniversary!

Be curious about the inspiring opening lecture by Prof. Dr. Dr. h. c. Michael ten Hompel, who will deal with the topic »Silicon Economy« and introduce the event. You can also look forward to a review of the 20-year history of »warehouse logistics" in which the new platform extension will be presented.

New in the programme this year is a »start-up exchange«, where young companies present themselves and their innovations - all around the topics of intralogistics and IT - in interesting pitches. This gives participants the chance to become aware of new innovations and to expand their professional and technical know-how.

You can also look forward to a presentation by Linda Maria Wings on this year's Market Report 2020. The focus is on the developments and trends in the WMS market, the functionalities of WMS and the modularity in the WMS market. In addition, excerpts from the upcoming »WMS Marktreport Kompakt 2020« will be presented. Data from the last few years as well as information since the year 2013 were taken into account for the evaluations.

Within the framework of the innovation exchange as a »Digital Sandbox«, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute will present the latest developments on topics such as »artificial intelligence« and »picking assistance« in a stimulating exchange. The aim is to expand the participants' knowledge spectrum and to show them new possibilities for the digitalisation of (intra-)logistics.

The digital participants' meeting will take place on Thursday, 29 October 2020 from 10:00 to 15:30. Registration for the industry meeting is free of charge for all members of the »WMS Datenbank« and is possible after logging in at
