Brussels, 30 July 2018 – Eight winners announced of The Smart Logistics Challenge, an initiative launched by FEM in December 2017
The competition was designed to connect with university students by giving them the chance to put forward their ideas on the most exciting trends transforming the industry.
“We will need the best and brightest young minds to help us achieve our goal as a sector to ‘deliver tomorrow’,” explained Christophe Lautray, FEM President.
