Impact of new technologies on the composition and operation of future fleets


flexis AG sponsors Logistics4Future Lounge on August 10.

Stuttgart, August 4, 2021. flexis AG, Stuttgart, is sponsoring the second Logistics4Future Lounge of the eponymous initiative of the German Logistics Association (BLV). Young logisticians have joined forces in the L4F initiative to discuss and further develop sustainability strategies in trade, industry, and transport. The lounge will take place online on August 10, 2021. The event aims to identify the best practices worthy of imitation and provide impetus for more sustainability in logistics.

In the introductory keynote speech, Florian Hammes from flexis AG will deal with the "Impact of new technologies on the composition of future vehicle fleets". Hammes is a master's student at the HFT Stuttgart about environmentally oriented logistics. Afterwards, he will discuss together with representatives from universities and companies as well as the L4F on how CO2 emissions can be balanced and priced.

flexis AG helps companies to sustainably master their complex supply chain tasks in global networks. To this end, it has almost 25 years of experience in providing flexible information systems for supply chain management. flexis sponsors the L4F Lounge to support this initiative for more sustainability in logistics, trade and industry.

The backdrop is the recognition that, now more than ever, transportation service providers must find ways to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions without reducing customer satisfaction and profitability. Public interest in environmentally friendly alternatives and increasing government regulations have led to related corporate sustainability initiatives.

flexis promotes these initiatives with the Carbon Footprint Optimizer, an add-on module for route and tour optimization that minimizes the carbon footprint of transports. The Carbon Footprint Optimizer records, evaluates, and optimizes all parameters that influence CO2 emissions according to DIN EN 16258. This data is used to optimize routing, network, and tariff negotiations. The result is the best possible combination of costs, GHG emissions and delivery performance.
