Digital transformation has great potential, but also brings great challenges. At the Logistik Sommer 2022, the main event of the Independent Logistics Society (ILS), experts from a range of areas and industries take a look at digitalization and how it can be a long-term goal. As a long-standing partner, KNAPP takes part in the think tank for the 20th year in a row in Leoben, Austria, from September 22 to 23, 2022.


Transforming value chains digitally

Logistik Sommer 2022 focuses on questions revolving around digital transformation: Is it possible to harness digitalization for the long term? How can we exploit the potential of digitalization for long-term success while generating added value along the entire value chain? And how does digital transformation affect us all?
In recent years, the event has become a platform for trendsetters, pioneers and masterminds that offers an exciting program on digitalization. Taking place in a modern local venue – the new Live Congress Leoben – the event not only lets participants network in person, some content is also available to view online.

Digitalization along the value chain

At KNAPP, digitalization plays a key role in the automation of value chains. Digital technologies, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning make it possible to smartly interconnect software and logistics systems along the entire value chain. With intelligent tools in logistics, the systems are fed with digital information, enabling them to perform optimally. These tools include cutting-edge digitalization, software, automation and robotics solutions, which are all part of KNAPP’s solution portfolio. They serve as the basis for success in a data-driven world.
