BLG LOGISTICS and logistics startups

WHY WE COOPERATE CLOSELY WITH STARTUPS AND YOUNG COMPANIES

Digitalization opens up countless opportunities for the logistics industry. To remain successful, logistics companies must grasp and implement these opportunities. We join forces with cooperation partners such as startups and young companies to develop innovative solutions for tomorrow's logistics.

At BLG LOGISTICS, we don't leave innovation to chance. We have established an innovation management system that defines a structured procedure from idea finding to implementation.
We receive a large number of exciting ideas from external sources. Our good contacts with the startup community, participation in conferences, trade shows and events and our ongoing exchanges with universities and research institutes constantly put us in touch with new developments, innovative ideas and novel concepts. Our team takes note of all these inputs and looks for suitable use cases where we can try them out in the BLG world.
 


WHY DO WE COOPERATE WITH LOGISTICS STARTUPS?

First, we profit from new ideas from outside our company. There are lots of young companies tackling the logistics of the future. We invite them to share their ideas and benefit from our experience!

Second, individual cooperation is possible. Often, young companies are looking for further applications for their proven solutions. We benefit when they adapt their solutions to our specific requirements.

Third, we love to feel the fresh wind! At the same time, we learn how today's young companies work. Agile methods and collaborative cooperation are just two aspects that play an important role for us as well.

HOW DO WE COOPERATE WITH LOGISTICS STARTUPS?

The basis for our cooperation is always an equal partnership from which both sides profit. We work on tomorrow's logistics and 
give young companies the chance to scale up their ideas througout BLG. At events such as the "Logistik" German startup cup in 2020, or the BLG Night in 2019, we give startups the opportunity to present themselves to us and a wider public. This has resulted in exciting contacts and project ideas.

As an established company that draws on a long tradition, we love to learn from the attitude and motivation of cooperating startups.

OUR NETWORK IN THE STARTUP COMMUNITY

We value our close relations with the startup community. That's why we regularly participate in the relevant events and act as sparring partners for founders in the region as well as startups with links to logistics.

We stay in touch
Intensive exchanges with other companies' innovation teams and innovation labs are important to us. Regular discussions on the latest trends, developments and methods are just as valuable as frank conversations about practical challenges. We experience a creative, open and collaborative community.
