Are you the type of person who likes to tinker with tools or tweak processes to create more efficient ways to get the job done? Have we got a job for you! DHL Corp. is looking for inventors and visionaries who have ideas for ways to develop a more efficient supply chain.
The German logistics giant has invited participants around the globe to submit their best ideas for self-driving delivery carts and sustainable logistics concepts. Submit your creative concepts in a written document and a video explaining the idea by Sept. 28, 2016. Finalists will have the chance to work with the company to jointly develop a proof-of-concept and display the result at DHL Innovation Day on Nov. 17.
Open to universities, students, companies, and anyone at least 18 years of age, the contest has two categories. The "Fair and Responsible Challenge" invites participants to come up with a new product, service solution, packaging concept, or some other way to generate value for society, the environment, and business.
