Although hackathons outside the software & tech industry are still a relatively new concept, examples show that future-oriented logistics companies and shippers can benefit greatly. The success of a hackathon lies in the ideas and innovative alternatives, carefully thought by external parties, who look at a problem with a new, refreshing look. 24 hours of intensive experimentation with new technologies, possibly with a spice digital knowledge and exciting concepts to then unpack with great results in yard management and supply chain visibility.

Leander Naessens, our CEO of Peripass, has a broad interest in product management, software design and automation. He was happy to support this event as a member of the jury. The OTM Logistics Hackathon 2019 was organized by OTM and Lanark. OTM, Organization of Traffic Managers, and Lanark, Digital Supply Chain Engineers, challenged participants to 24 hours of intense experimenting with other creative logistics & supply chain innovators.
