The Smart Logistics Challenge

This is an FEM initiative designed to connect with university students by giving them the chance to put forward their ideas on the most exciting trends transforming our industry.
The materials handling industry has been a silent hero in our economy and society. It is a true enabler of e-commerce and Industry 4.0, yet remains unknown to the general public. This is why we at FEM have reached out to students to get to know our industry and help us achieve our goal as a sector to "deliver tomorrow" !
The Smart Logistics Challenge asked students to tackle one of 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.
The competition targeted both engineering and business students, as companies increasingly require a holistic mindset and diverse skill-set from their people in order to stay competitive.
The six winners will receive a paid internship with one of the partner companies, plus a VIP Invitation to the FEM Congress.

The Awards Ceremony at FEM Congress

The awards ceremony will take place on Friday from 14:00 until 18:00 and will bring the winners on stage to present their ideas on the future of logistics. If you are curious what young talents have in mind for our industry, join the ceremony and connect with them.
You can find out more about the competition at Smartlogisticschallenge and join the conversation on social media by using #DeliverTomorrow.
