On the third day of the fair we were able to welcome Evertracker in our 'Denkfabrik'. For this software start-up, transparency is a clear priority. Evertracker's software gives users full control and visibility of their supply chain, making processes more efficient and effective. This is made possible by the use of algorithms. Both forwarders, such as Kobernuss, and big players, such as Bosch, are already partners of the start-up.

This means that the entire transport logistics of a company can be optimised and managed both strategically and operationally with just one click.

There are more new impulses every day in the 'Denkfabrik' at the Krone stand. Stay tuned.
