DHL launches €10,000 logistics competition

DHL has started the search for the most innovative logistics scientist or entrepreneur in the 2013 DHL Innovation Award.

The winner will receive a prize of €10,000. The award is open to students, graduates and research associates and requires a practice-orientated scientific contribution to a logistics-related problem. For the first time in the award’s history, the jury will also consider young entrepreneurs who have tackled a logistics problem and laid out its solution in a business plan – or even implemented it already.

“We will honour an external, creative mind who has made a great contribution to the logistics industry,” said Petra Kiwitt, executive vice president, solutions & innovation at DHL.

“The cooperation with science and young entrepreneurs is vital for us and has brought great benefit in the past. With the help of this award, we aim to motivate scientists and young entrepreneurs to go even further to find innovative and sustainable solutions for the logistics industry.”

Contestants have until 31st January to hand in their applications.
