Boot Camp: Digitalization in Logistics

Workshop for Bachelor Students


Bootcamp Digitalization in Logistics

A day doesn’t go by without the launch of a new technical logistics solution. With smart devices, location and inventory data can be recorded and forwarded in real time. Progress in robotics is enabling unheard of levels of warehouse automation and in the near future. Big data support companies as they guide trucks through traffic, making sure they arrive at customers’ doors when they are on the premises. Everyone has great expectations of the development and impact of the technologies that are key for the “Supply Chain 4.0.”
KLU in Hamburg addresses these hot topics in a 3-day workshop for students. The “Digitalization in Logistics” boot camp is being held from April 5-7, 2017 on the KLU campus in the heart of HafenCity.
Three top companies from the sector will show how they leverage the new technologies. In a balanced mix of lectures, presentations, case studies, group work, and discussions, the boot camp participants will tackle important issues such as: What process optimization potential do the new technologies have? Where can new technologies be used to boost flexibility? How do we capture and analyze data to benefit supply chains? How can customers benefit from the new technologies?

The free 3- day workshop is targeted to interested bachelor students with business administration backgrounds. You’ll have to apply to be invited to attend. KLU will be accepting applications from February 1 to March 17, 2017 and applicants will receive their answer by March 24. The workshop will be held in English. All boot camp participants will receive a certificate of completion.

Switch off and recharge your batteries in the evening. We' ll take you out for dinner. Mix up with our international students. They will introduce you to Hamburg night live and share their favorite spots and places.
