Log4Jobs - low loss food logistics for jobs in Ethiopia

The resource-efficient supply of a growing world population with food is one of the core challenges of our society. Today, food is already being produced for over 12 billion people worldwide, but almost a third of this food is being lost. While in western industrialised countries a large part of these losses are attributable to the end consumer, the opposite picture is emerging in developing countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Rather, it is post-harvest losses along the logistics chain (to the end consumer) that account for the bulk of the losses here. The project aims to develop solutions for designing low-loss food logistics and at the same time create more employment opportunities. This goal will be achieved by applying various research methods and by involving the relevant stakeholders. more to: Log4Jobs - low loss food logistics for jobs in Ethiopia

Competence Center for International Logistics Networks

The Competence Center for International Logistics Networks (ILNET) is endowed by the Kuehne Foundation, which is supporting research on international logistics networks at TUB since 2005. Over the past years, ILNET strongly focused on research on robustness in international logistics research and thereby supported practice in managing disruption risks and supply chain volatility. To support supply chain managers in planning robust international networks, ILNET developed a logistics planning tool – the TUB Logistics Navigator, which enables a co-creational network planning process among different partners in the supply chain. more to: Competence Center for International Logistics Networks

IPLogE – Integration of Practice-oriented Logistics Education in Ethiopia

As the Ethiopian government has set itself the goal of becoming a central manufacturing hub in Africa, especially focusing on the textile and food industry, the logistics sector of the country represents a core component for achieving the desired economic growth. However, the current way of teaching logistics on a university-level is mostly based on educating students on theoretical logistics concepts, instead of linking those concepts to practice-relevant content. The project IPLogE aims at improving the practice-orientation of current logistics education at the Addis Ababa University (AAU) and adjusting it to the logistics specifics of the textile and food industry in Ethiopia. This joint project of Technische Universität Berlin (TUB) and AAU thereby focuses on better preparing students for upcoming requirements of the labor market and providing them with opportunities to get in touch with potential employers earlier. more to: IPLogE – Integration of Practice-oriented Logistics Education in Ethiopia

Pan-African Mobility Alliance (PAMA)

In order to strengthen Africa's economic development by creating sustainable jobs in the areas of mobility for economic goods and people, the Pan-African Mobility Alliance (PAMA) has now been founded in Berlin by German Development Minister Dr. Gerd Müller together with companies and the TU Berlin. more to: Pan-African Mobility Alliance (PAMA)

SUDLogER – Sustainable Urban Development through Logistics Education in Rwanda

The project SUDLogER aims at improving the practice-orientation of current logistics education in cooperation with the University of Rwanda (UR). more to: SUDLogER – Sustainable Urban Development through Logistics Education in Rwanda

SELECT - AI-based ETA predictions for inland navigation logistics chains

Within the framework of a cooperation with various actors of the German port industry (including inland shipping companies and operators of inland and seaport terminals), the SELECT project will tap significant potentials for the logistics chains of inland waterway from the increasing data stock, including Inland AIS. With the help of artificial intelligence (machine learning), SELECT will develop a digital decision assistant that enables inland navigation players to optimise transport processes by providing arrival time predictions (ETA) and related recommendations for action. more to: SELECT - AI-based ETA predictions for inland navigation logistics chains

Distribut(e) - Green neighbourhood supply chains for the city of tomorrow

The goal of the research project Distribut(e) is the development and testing of new business and supply models for local logistics service providers. A special focus lies on sustainability. For this purpose a shared E-logistic was set up at the Klausenerplatz and the Mierendorff-Island in Berlin. Low-threshold service provisions of the Urban Design Thinking will be integrated to help this goal. A support of IT systems is needed to cope with the tasks of the order of local commodities, the managing of future and special deliveries and the organisation of regular routes. more to: Distribut(e) - Green neighbourhood supply chains for the city of tomorrow

Mobility2Grid

The energy system transformation is shaping up as an extremely complex social challenge. According to the German government's energy concept, the share of renewable energies (RE) in electricity generation is to be increased to 60 percent by 2035. By the year 2050, it is even planned that the supply of electricity, heat and transport will be based almost entirely on renewable energy sources. Despite the considerable efforts made in politics, industry and society, implementation is only possible in the long term, because it means that essential components of the current supply principle are no longer valid, the necessary business models are not sustainable and many technical problems have not yet been solved. more to: Mobility2Grid

MX Award

The MX Award was initiated with the goal to identify and facilitate innovative solutions in the field of production logistics and make them publicly available. Accordingly it is the goal to set up a network for the communication and creation of Best Practices in order to promote cross-sector international cooperation. The phase model of the MX Award "Recognizing Strenths - Generate Innovation - Setting Standards - Communicate Best Practices" illustrates this claim as a communications platform as well as a generator of innovation in research and practice. more to: MX Award
