We explore new worlds for you!

In joint research projects with the EU and Federal Ministries as well as by our close cooperation with the elite university RWTH Aachen we are constantly committed to the development of new, practice-oriented and sustainable solutions and competences.


Some examples for our research projects:

Current projects

CAMPUSLOGIN – Network of the logistics industry in the region of Aachen

Already today Aachen has been recognised in Germany and Europe as a location for innovative logistics research. By the Campus Project of the RWTH Aachen and the clusters realised in there, the logistics companies of the region of Aachen are offered excellent chances, to benefit from latest research and development results as well as innovations on the subject of logistics. In particular SME from the logistics industry are often lacking access to current research and development results from universities or research departments of large company groups.

Objective of interdisciplinary research and development projects is the initiation and stabilisation of a SME network of the logistics industry in the region of Aachen, in which they can use synergies and potentials of research and development work in the logistics cluster of the Campus of the RWTH Aachen and that way get to know the complex interrelations of logistics in real production and IT-environments.

 
REBOUND LOGISTICS – Development of recommendations for planning and structuring of an integrative reverse supply chain under consideration of an existing supply chain.

A great number of factors e.g. legislation in the area of environmental policy, economic, ecological, market strategic and customer-side aspects more and more put the reverse supply chain into the focus of companies. The handling of products, used or returned in planning and logistics processes of manufacturers, plays an increasingly important role.

Objective of the planned research project therefore is the development of recommendations for an efficient integration of reverse supply chain management into the existing supply chain network. For the development of these recommendations strategic, tactical and operative order processing, relevant process selection and process priorisation as well as organisational incorporation are synchronized. Project-executing organisation is the research institute for rationalisation „Forschungsinstitut für Rationalisierung e.V” of the RWTH Aachen.

 

Completed projects

KONVOI – development and investigation of the use of electronically linked truck conveys.

Aim of the project was the development and investigation of the use of truck convoys on the road. In this respect the effects on the traffic was analysed by means of real and virtual drive tests by using test carriers and a truck driving simulator.

Project partners were institutes of the RWTH Aachen and besides the Hammer GmbH&Co.KG various companies from industry.

 
STARLOG – development of a standard for classification, specification and evaluation of logistics services in commercial transport.

So far standardised description criteria for classification and specification of supply and demand of transport logistics services, as well as standardised processes for quality measurement of transport logistics performances after their provision had so far been missing in the selection of suppliers.
