Customer service and value has been emphasized at this year’s event, while the process and cost optimization were secondary. The keynotes provided valuable insight into the different challenges and opportunities digitalisation holds for the logistics industry. The participants of the afternoon workshop developed creative solutions for current challenges in the logistics. This year’s event was followed by the Logistics Hall of Fame, which took in the evening. Former Swiss Federal councillor Adolf Ogi and Rudolf Haldimann were receiving the lifetime achievement award from the Foundation Logistics Switzerland.
