LGI employees win LEO Award for the pakadoo parcel service
HERRENBERG/HAMBURG (Germany). Division Manager Markus Ziegler and creator Kris Van Lancker of LGI Logistics Group International GmbH won the 2016 LEO Award for the best innovation with their pakadoo parcel service. The German Transport Journal (DVZ) awards the logistics prize annually for the five categories of Company, Manager, Lifetime Achievement, Personality of the Year, and Innovation.
Last year, the prize went to Daimler for the self-driving truck concept, this year pakadoo was amongst the list of prestigious award-winners. The LGI app-based service manages the receipt and return of private parcels from the workplace – independent of the parcel delivery service and online shop (e.g. Amazon). The idea behind pakadoo convinced the jury because the service saves time and money for all parties as well as reduces the impact on the environment.
At this stage, around 27,000 employees at over 50 locations in Germany can use pakadoo. Large employers, such as Hewlett-Packard, IBM, ZF/TRW, or newly the Paul Hartmann Group have implemented the system at their premises.
