DHL Innovation Challenges focusing on robotics and sharing economy

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

DHL is launching its annual “Innovation Challenges” initiative today (15 March) – and this year’s programme is calling on students, start-ups and inventors either to produce a prototype of a mobile piece picking robot, or to develop a solution to a logistics problem using a “sharing economy” business model, platform or concept.

Anyone who wants to accept the challenge  should submit a written document and video explaining their idea through the competition’s website at

Senior DHL executives will review the entries and select three finalists for each challenge. The nominees will present their solutions in front of 180 senior supply chain professionals and trend experts at the DHL Innovation Day in Germany on 16 November.

The winners will be selected in a live-voting process while the two top scorers receive the prize money and will have their concepts displayed at the DHL Innovation Centers in Germany and Singapore.

They will also have the opportunity to develop proof-of-concepts with DHL.
