“Everything in motion” – this guiding theme applies to the logistics sector today more than ever before: digitalisation and especially artificial intelligence everywhere will change everything for everyone! Leading this paradigm shift before others do so is the key. With the industrialisation of artificial intelligence (AI), we are heading for a silicone economy – a data and platform economy in which IoT brokers generate data, blockchain brokers trade and record data, and logistics brokers organise logistics processes.

“Just do it!” – that was the motto in 2017, and not just for the “Future Logistics Congress”. It is also the spirit that motivates us in our daily work at the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics IML – and that helped the logistics sector to be perceived as a pioneer for industry 4.0 and the digital transformation of the industry today.
