Collaborations for the future

Logistic solutions for today and tomorrow

Following global trends, such as e-commerce and digitalisation, the material handling industry is changing and adapting quite quickly. That’s why we’re collaborating with partners such as our sister company Vanderlande and Microsoft on logistic solutions for today and tomorrow.

The 4th Toyota Logistic Design Competition 2020 is looking for baggage handling solutions

Organised every two years by Toyota Material Handling Europe, the 2020 edition of the Toyota Logistic Design Competition is now open. This year's competition theme 'Baggage handling: Can you make it fly?' focuses on baggage handling solutions for airports. In this edition, the formerly European competition opens its door to design students all over the globe.


We recognise that we have to be open-minded and agile when it comes to future trends in logistics technology, and collaboration with customers and like-minded suppliers is vital to achieve this. Our aim is to work with our customers to share our thinking and help them to improve efficiencies at every stage of the process. It’s an ongoing process for us - we call it Logiconomi. Our Logiconomi convention has helped us to share our ideas, gain valuable feedback, and share our lean-thinking with customers.
