We jointly develop IT standards in logistics beyond company boundaries and make the results accessible to everyone. This open-source approach is intended to replace individual investments in the digitalization of commodities. Every company will benefit from this.

100 percent digital is not a dream, but our common future in more and more use cases. The open-source concept guarantees an open standard for digitalizing logistics processes while offering a high degree of flexibility for individual adaptations.
Dr. Stephan Peters, Rhenus SE & Co. KG, Vice Chairman of the Open Logistics Foundation
It is advantageous for all supply chain parties, if in the future, that selected software components are available to everyone free of charge as open-source elements and continuously updated via a neutral authority.
Stefan Hohm, Chief Development Officer (CDO), DACHSER SE, Vice Chairman of the Open Logistics Foundation
The digitalization of logistics can only be advanced by working together. The bundling of resources and topics offers a unique opportunity to set de facto standards instead of creating further monoliths.
