The decision is up to you now!

On 22 August, the expert jury met to deliberate on the Digital Logistics Award 2023 call for entries. Out of a total of 54 applicants from 18 different countries, eight promising start-ups made it to the final. What makes this special is the fact that the three winners will be determined by an expert audience consisting of over 500 participants from the logistics industry. Each of these finalists will be given the opportunity to present a three-minute pitch at the Zukunftskongress Logistik, thus introducing both themselves and their innovative idea.

These eight start-ups made it to the final this year:

The final of the Digital Logistics Awards will take place on site at the Congress Centre in Dortmund on 12 September 2023. The last time the Zukunftskongress Logistik was held entirely digitally, so you can look forward to meeting the start-ups on site again. From 3.30pm, the eight finalists will pitch and then the audience and expert jury will vote on the winners, who will then be announced at the Award Ceremony during the evening event on the same day.

The sponsors of this year’s award include duisport packing logistics GmbH in cooperation with Startport GmbH, the Open Logistics Foundation and the Digital Hub Logistics e.V..
