The Digital Logistics Award was presented yesterday for the 6th time. During the “Zukunftskongress Logistik – 41st Dortmunder Gespräche”, the 7 finalists were given the opportunity to present their diverse and innovative logistics solutions to the audience in a three-minute elevator pitch. Afterwards, the audience and the expert jury voted for their favourites. The festive award ceremony of the Digital Logistics Award took place during the evening event of the city of Dortmund in the halls of the art exhibition “Phoenix des Lumières”.

Mansio GmbH is the number 1 at the Digital Logistics Award 2023

The Aachen-based start-up Mansio is on the winner’s podium of the Digital Logistics Awards with its software-based transport system for road freight. With its idea, Mansio was able to convince both the audience and the expert jury and thus secure first place, which is endowed with 15,000 euros and offers access to the network of Europe’s best Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH). The start-up’s system is based on the concept of encounter traffic: during a transport, one truck hands over its semi-trailer to another truck. This enables highly efficient use of resources and helps optimise supply chains.
