Logwert competence centre
Established in 2015, LOGWERT sees itself as an innovation lab for logistics and added value. LOGWERT is a joint research competence centre of Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering IAO and Heilbronn University of Applied Sciences, which develops application-related and feasible solutions in the fields of transport logistics and road freight transport for and in collaboration with industry, trade and the public sector.
The research activities of the competence centre become increasingly important, as the fields of logistics and transport are facing major changes in the future. The aim of the LOGWERT competence centre is to find sustainable responses to the new questions to be expected in the fields of regional added value, logistics and selected areas of passenger mobility. In this respect, LOGWERT seeks to provide the necessary foundations to businesses and local authorities.
Besides innovative and sustainable results for the logistics and transport sector, regional location development and transport infrastructure, new perspectives for urban areas, intelligent and networked logistics as well as regional added value and the sharing of resources are at the heart of LOGWERT’s research activities.
The LOGWERT competence centre is funded by both the Dieter Schwarz Foundation and the State Ministry of Baden-Wuerttemberg for Economic Affairs, Labour and Housing Construction.
