M2G visits Logi­MAT 2024

Logi­MAT, Euro­pe’s lea­ding trade fair for intra­lo­gi­stics solu­ti­ons, was once again a mee­ting point for num­e­rous spe­cia­lists and experts this year. This time, the focus lay on the chal­lenges and oppor­tu­ni­ties that can ari­se from digi­ta­liza­ti­on and con­nec­ti­vi­ty. Inter­na­tio­nal exhi­bi­tors show­ca­sed their latest deve­lo­p­ments and solutions.

Repre­sen­ta­ti­ves of Mobility2Grid took the oppor­tu­ni­ty to talk to indus­try dele­ga­tes about the appli­ca­ti­on of cli­ma­te-fri­end­ly mobi­li­ty tech­no­lo­gies in logi­stics. Alex­an­der Grah­le, Nina Weber and Lars Tasche dis­cus­sed cur­rent deve­lo­p­ments in the field of hydro­gen trucks with experts from DB Schen­ker and the com­pa­ny Hylane.

One high­light was the visit to DB Schen­ker’s air freight site in Stutt­gart. Not only were real-world tri­als of hydro­gen trucks pre­sen­ted here, but reports on the use of the bat­tery-elec­tric eAc­tros were also shared. The­se prac­ti­cal expe­ri­en­ces offer valuable insights into the fea­si­bi­li­ty and effi­ci­en­cy of alter­na­ti­ve dri­ve con­cepts in the logi­stics sector.

Through a clo­se exch­an­ge of rese­arch with com­pa­nies that are test­ing solu­ti­ons in prac­ti­ce, know­ledge can be poo­led in order to achie­ve valuable results. This cor­re­sponds to the core idea of the Mobility2Grid Campus.
