Details Logistics Tech Short: The Yard and Road Workshop Part I - Automation


From in-plant to outbound, from robots to routing, and from trucking to tracking: Automation in logistics has reached new levels. But despite all the tools and excitement, the question remains: What does it bring to the table? Where can we find the greatest return on investment? Which mobile tools provide the highest digital torque?

In this hands-on Logistics Tech Short we’ll put yard and road automation the test. Watch Holger Süß (Axians) and Karsten Horn (INFORM) as they dismantle the common automation tools and explain what they can do for cement, aggregates, or ready-mix producers.

You'll Learn

  1. An update on latest yard technology and AI-powered transport planning.
  2. The pros and cons of automation and digitalization in logistics.
  3. Latest self-driving technology trends and their limitations.
  4. Why data exchange and interfaces are the key drivers for automation.
  5. How to avoid a data mess and to lay a clean and green foundation for rapid access.
  6. What new skill sets are required to manage and run automated supply chains?


Based on their recent success in “Rivals or Allies? Yard and Road in Cement Logistics”, IT veteran duo Holger Süß and Karsten Horn decided take the Logistics Tech Shorts series to the shopfloor. Instead of the usual slide-driven presentation, they will use this new format to dismantle logistics technology, look what’s inside and what’s in for you.

Holger is Teamlead Project Organization and Presales at Axians, a leading provider of yard management technology. Karsten is Senior Manager Business Development at INFORM, the transport optimization software provider.
