LGI Sets Up Digital Logistics Lab As A Partner In Böblingen

BÖBLINGEN. LGI Logistics Group International GmbH and its partners inaugurated the digitalization center in Böblingen near Stuttgart on February 4th. “As partner of the center, we are delighted to be pushing ahead with digitalization and innovation projects”, said Dorothea Küttner, Head of Corporate Strategy and Innovation at LGI. The centre supports small and medium-sized enterprises in the district of Böblingen and in the Stuttgart region as a central advisory centre for digitisation projects.

In addition to LGI, the district of Böblingen, the University of Reutlingen, the Software Center Böblingen/Sindelfingen, the Star Cooperation and the Coworking Space Herrenberg also par-ticipate in the Digitalization Center. The Böblingen region had initiated the project to offer companies advice on digitalization as one of the central current challenges.

In the coming months, LGI will set up an own laboratory at its headquarter in Herrenberg. “With our Digital Logistics Lab, we are targeting Logistics 4.0”, says Küttner. Test and creative areas will have been set up in the lab where new technologies such as scan gloves can be tested. “We also attach great importance to the qualification of specialists in our lab”, Küttner continues. “It is important for us to work closely with our partners so that we can benefit from each other’s experience and offer sustainable help to companies.”

Küttner explains: “We also hope that the exchange with our partners will lead to an increase in knowledge where we can support our customers even better as a logistics provider. We want to understand what companies are up against in digitalization and where their challenges are. And of course, we also want to encourage our employees to bring innovative ideas to the company.”

The Center for Digitalization in Böblingen is one of many in Baden-Württemberg. The aim of the center is to advise small and medium-sized companies on digitalization projects. In addition, companies receive support in the development of digital business models. Established creative areas should make digitalization projects tangible and qualify specialists. The center in Böblingen is supported by the state of Baden-Württemberg and its partner companies.
