The »warehouse logistics« Community

What Is the »warehouse logistics« Community?

»warehouse logistics« is more than just an information platform on the Internet. From the long-term study on Warehouse Management Systems, which has been in existence since 2000, a whole community of more than 70 participating Logistics IT providers and the »Team warehouse logistics« of Fraunhofer IML has grown. Since 2020, providers of other Logistics IT systems - such as TMS, RPS, BI, FGS and Pick-by-solutions - also have the opportunity to have their system listed on the platform and thus become part of the »warehouse logistics« community.

Exchange within the Community

The exchange within the Logistics IT sector, the mutual innovative enrichment as well as the information of industry and society about necessary Logistics IT know-how are in the foreground. This is essentially realized through four pillars.

  1. The regular, personal validations of the Logistics IT systems by the »Team warehouse logistics« at the Logistics IT providers on site, at Fraunhofer IML or - especially in times of corona – online.
  2. The annual participants' meeting of the »warehouse logistics« community at the Fraunhofer IML premises. Lectures from research and practice as well as the exchange within the community provide impulses for the participants to further develop their systems and corporate strategies. The transfer of knowledge and last but not least the possibility to experience innovative, logistical developments at first hand has made the meeting of the »warehouse logistics« community a fixed point in the industry for Logistics IT providers.
  3. Joint publications - A number of whitepapers have already been produced by the »Team warehouse logistics«. The selective involvement of the Logistics IT providers ensures that the knowledge and experience of both the provider and the user side are incorporated into the process. In addition to whitepapers, specialist articles are also published regularly by the »warehouse logistics« community.
  4. The »warehouse logistics« advisory committee - In addition, the »warehouse logistics« advisory committee was founded in 2009 to promote the platform in a sustainable way, to push the further development of the platform, to identify trends early and to further strengthen the »warehouse logistics« community. The »warehouse logistics« advisory committee consists of ten Logistics IT providers of the »warehouse logistics« community and has an advisory function. It supports and promotes the future developments of the platform through comprehensive knowledge and experience from the Logistics IT sector.
