In the past few decades, the logistics sector has experienced revolutionary shifts in technologies, business models, policies and legislation, with outcomes of public funded R&I projects being a key facilitator.
To acknowledge the achievements and inspire the R&I community of the logistics sector, ALICE launched the first Innovation Award in April this year. The first award has been focused on successful implementation cases stemming from R& I projects in logistics coordination and collaboration.
Implement Cases are concrete examples in which causal links between public R&I funding and technology, organizational or process innovation in a specific logistics area can be established.
The ALICE Logistics Innovation Award evaluates all collected Implementation Cases. The evaluation is done by the selection based on three criteria: Link between R&I funded project and the implementation; Success of market implementation; Scalability and growth potential.
The Award Selection Committee, consists of five experts from the ALICE membership:
In the field of logistics collaboration and coordination, four cases have been selected.
Two gold awards are given to:
Two silver awards are given to:
At the ceremony the project consortium also launched a cloud report presenting main outcomes and implementation cases derived from the R&I projects as potential implementation paths on logistics collaboration and coordination.
