The topics of this issue
Artificial intelligence in logistics applications – future fantasy or already a reality?
Artificial intelligence, or in short AI, is considered one of the most important technologies of the future, which can be expected to bring about major changes in many sectors and occupational fields over the coming decades.
According to a company's sales forecast for AI for the years 2017-2025, KI is expected to deliver approximately $1.3 billion in revenue in Europe in 2020. A potential analysis on "Artificial Intelligence" by IT group Sopra Steria revealed that 20% of all companies in the logistics and transport industry are already using such applications. Another third plans to use AI in the coming years. At the leading trade fairs of the industry, such as the LogiMAT and the CeMAT, exhibitors are increasingly advertising AI as a motor of the future.
But what exactly is AI and is the subject really that new?
Support program "De-minimis" – Do you already benefit?
Since January 7, 2019, the application period for the funding period 2019 of the "De-minimis" funding program has been running. It expires on September 30, 2019. Companies that want to submit an application will therefore have just under four months left this year.
De-minimis is a subsidy program for companies in heavy goods vehicle transport that carry out the safety and environmental measures specified in the framework catalog.
In order to qualify for support, companies must operate road haulage within the definition of Section 1 of the German Road Traffic Act (GüKG) at the time of application and be the owner or keeper of at least one heavy duty commercial vehicle registered in the Federal Republic of Germany for use on public roads.
