FEM has partnered with 6 companies to organise its first student competition. The Smart Logistics Challenge calls on young talent to help the materials handling industry to ‘deliver, tomorrow’.
>>> What is the competition?
The Smart Logistics Challenge asks students to tackle one of three case studies, each one requiring a forward-looking and solution-oriented approach:
- Enablers of E-commerce
- Cobotics in Logistics 4.0
- Logistics in a Sharing Economy
>>> What are the prizes?
The top 6 contestants with the best concepts will win a VIP trip to Antwerp to attend the FEM Congress and a six-month paid traineeship with one of the partner companies: Balyo, Linde, MoTuM, Stow, Toyota Material Handling and Vanderlande.
>>> Who can take part?
Companies increasingly require a holistic mindset and diverse skill-set from their people in order to stay competitive. Reflecting this, the competition is open to both engineering and business students from across Europe (EU28 + Norway, Switzerland, Iceland, Russia and Turkey).
>>> How long it the competition running?
Entries were made until early April. The second phase is ongoing and will finish at the end of June. Winners will present their project on the occasion of the FEM Congress on 14 September 2018 in Antwerp.
