No one succeeds alone in digitising logistics. Participation is the order of the day. Developing solutions together and sharing the results – this is how everyone progresses. The Open Logistics Foundation and its support association Open Logistics e. V. are lighting the way.
Benefit for each company
The more companies contribute ideas for open source developments to the community, the greater the gain for each individual company.
The more developer-capacity companies bring to the projects, the better the solutions will scale.
Rapid spread of standards
The more companies develop and use the solutions, the faster standards spread.
“Cooperation between competitors is a must if companies are to survive in global competition. This is especially true in Europe.”
“Today, logistics and supply chain management still operate in a world of silos and media discontinuities. There just isn’t enough digital, cross-company data exchange. More than ever, it is collaboration that counts.”
“We are participating because we are convinced that logistical standard solutions are only digitally scalable when they are developed through collaboration.”
