Working Group Electronic Transport Documents welcomes new leadership

Exciting times unfold as we proudly announce Jonas Kassan from the Rhenus Group, as the new Working Group co-lead for Electronic Transport Documents. Jonas Kassan, alongside Ingo Müller from Dachser SE, will guide the Working Group towards its mission of developing a unified solution for handling shipping documents across various modes of transport. This underlines how competitors work together under the Foundation’s umbrella for a common goal: to harmonise logistics solutions and define de-facto standards.

Open source in logistics: being part of it is (not) everything

Open source in logistics: being part of it is (not) everything

Digitalisation in logistics must not be an end in itself but rather serve to make logistics more efficient and more stable as a whole. This is why open and collaborative solutions are required: solutions that transcend system boundaries and are accessible to all. As a result, the Open Logistics Foundation member network is working together to develop open source solutions. It focuses on services that businesses cannot utilise to differentiate themselves from competitors, but the efficiency of these services can be significantly improved through standardising.
