Digital Networks in Transport Logistics

The course offers students the opportunity to deepen their theoretical knowledge of transport logistics by means of practical case studies. The focus of the course is on the current and future changes in transport logistics in the course of digitalisation and increasing networking.

In the course of these events, the participants are motivated to independently develop solutions to current challenges in digital transport logistics and to discuss them with the course instructors with regard to practical relevance and implementation.

The course functions as an open discussion platform for the transfer of know-how between science and practice and rounds off the course in transport logistics.

The event is limited to a maximum of 20 participants.

Topics in summer semester 2022

In the summer semester 2022, the following topics will be covered in the course:

  • Mobile communications standard 5G - significance for transport logistics
  • Anticipatory logistics - use of AI for the forecast-based control of logistics processes
  • Digital twins - use of simulation methods in transport logistics
  • Distributed Ledger Technology (Blockchain) - Use cases in transport logistics
  • 3D printing - opportunity or risk for logistics?
  • Automation of seaports - state of the art and perspectives
  • Dry Ports and Extended Gateways - Alternative concepts for port hinterland traffic
  • Automatic wagon couplings in rail freight transport
  • Alternative drive concepts in air transport
  • Alternative drive concepts in road freight transport

The kick-off with subsequent topic allocation will take place on Mon, 25.04.2022 from 14:00 online via Zoom or in ISIS. The other event dates in the summer semester 2022 are generally planned as attendance events. Further information on the kick-off can be found in the ISIS course "Digital Networks in Transport Logistics SoSe 2022".
