9 hours of case studies, innovation and inspirational lectures
In September, ADLER Czech started operating the state-of-the-art hybrid photovoltaic system with accumulation in batteries as part of its logistics center in the area of Contera Park Ostrava City. The combination of 947 photovoltaic panels on the roof and shell of the building with a large-capacity battery and cogeneration units ensures almost 100% electricity consumption of the whole building. Along with this, it also ensures the charging of forklifts and electric vehicles. The project is part of a set corporate social responsibility strategy with the aim of reducing its carbon footprint.
The uniqueness of the system innovation lies not only in combination with cogeneration units, but above all in its possibility of independent control not only depending on the current weather, but also predictively according to weather forecast. The capacity of the batteries can be controlled by software depending on the actual use and requirements of operation.
We supply our brands from Prazdroj directly to almost 40,000 stores in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. In the past three years, we have transformed our customer distribution management system from the 20th to the 21st century. Our new mobile platform represents a significant step forward for our customers, our carriers and us. Our mobile application has accelerated and simplified the work of drivers and, in combination with our Control Tower, gives us the ability to monitor delivery status in real time. In the future, our mobile platform will give us advice on other options that we plan to develop further. At the conference, we want to present our path to digital distribution, the benefits we have achieved, and the challenges and opportunities for the future.
Application of modern weighing technologies in assembly operations. One such technology is Ii SmartLocker, which cleverly utilizes fully automatic weighing technology to control offtakes while simultaneously monitoring warehouse and ordering. SCS (or vendor consolidation) integrates any number of vendors into a single system, greatly streamlining your company’s logistics processes.
The I_Site fleet management technology enables the interconnection and monitoring of trucks (Smart Trucks category). Obtained data and their systematic diagnostics positively influence key manipulation operations, their safety and efficiency. By fully controlling and operating trucks, it eliminates resource wastage and reduces operating costs. Thanks to the equipment of smart trucks and the possibility of interconnection with the new service platform T-Stream, resp. with the so-called “big data” information, accurate response to acute service cases or predictive maintenance is possible. Preventive remote service is another essential step to ensure maximum reliability and availability of trucks, which is a key requirement for many major customers, regardless of scale and complexity.
When the new building 3 at Prologis Park Prague-Airport received the highest possible Outstanding rating in May as part of the BREEAM sustainability accreditation this May, it was a confirmation that this is a truly exceptional project. It was created through close collaboration between the Prologis logistics real estate development teams and EYELEVEL, a designer and outfitting company for which 70% of the building area was tailor-made: EYELEVEL announced a tender for suppliers to merge its two existing distribution centers into one complex solution. Prologis met the strict criteria for location, quality and infrastructure of the building, its accessibility for employees and sustainability. It handed over a modern building to the customer, which was built with regard to the specifics of EYELEVEL’s business, the comfort of its employees and the environment. From the tender to the project preparation and construction to handover – culminating in the prestigious BREEAM recognition – you will be guided by Michal Vrba, vice president of project management for Prologis in Central and Eastern Europe, and Martin Katzer, EYELEVEL operations director for EMEA.
Jan Kočárek, General Manager of CHEP CZ&SK (with its core business: outsourcing of pallet rental services from its own fund) will guide you through the development of a 100% recyclable plastic 1/4 pallet display. Learn how logistics savings, visually appealing brand presentations can be combined into one transport platform, while contributing as a company to a clean environment. Add innovative topics such as double stacking, proximity marketing or pooling of pallets to your dictionary.
The LOG-IN project also includes an award program. Each category of the LOG-IN awards has its own guarantor – a fachman in his or her field. Who supported the second year of the competition for the best logistics innovations?

Jim Dickson will describe the journey the UK retail industry have embarked upon to support today’s connected consumer and deliver a single source of trusted relevant product data for today, tomorrow and into the digital future.
We are seeing climate change, which is mainly attributed to greenhouse gas emissions. However, other anthropogenic activity, which has an impact on water retention in the landscape, is also related to the increase in average temperatures. Construction and agriculture have resulted in a change in runoff and infiltration conditions. 10 hectares of land are built up daily in the Czech Republic. The water from these places is drained into the streams and therefore outside our territory. With the expanding development, vegetation is decreasing, which, thanks to transpiration and evaporation of water, acts as a cooler and contributes to the functioning of a short water cycle. The whole problem is thus deepening. One of the possible measures in urbanized space is green roofs and facades…
More than ever, performance and proper setup of warehouse processes play an important role in the e-commerce environment. It is not only an overview of the stock items, but also the speed of dispatch, efficient receipt of returns or having a properly set remuneration system for employees in the warehouse. The case study will show how the optimization of these processes and the overall transformation of storage at Aktin took place and what benefits can be achieved by deploying a cloud WMS solution.
Digital twins are currently among the top technological trends in digital transformation and automation. The wide range of tools and functionalities that this technology has is used in the digitization of logistics, supply chain optimization, but also in the dynamic and autonomous management of logistics processes. The case studies will present the practical deployment of digital twin technology for in-house supply and agile material-flow management.
Filip Dřímalka, an expert in digital transformation of companies focusing on innovation and digital competence building, will reveal the technological trends that change the face of logistics, as well as how to identify those that can help you benefit and how to build competence to work with them. It will present technologies that you can use today, and those that are not yet spoken, but will soon be, as well as the greatest opportunities in technology partnerships. Wondering how to successfully upgrade? How to motivate employees to think about innovations and come up with ideas? Why is it sometimes good to connect with competitors? How to establish partnerships with startups and technology companies?
From Industry 3.0 to Industry 4.0. And even further…
Czech industry is undergoing a fundamental transformation and logistics as a service sector cannot stand on the sidelines. Automation in many companies works relatively well in both production and logistics. Now is the time for the merger of manufacturing and logistics operations. And also the time of interconnection of individual machines, products, components, software and even people…, while the vital “fluid” of this process is data. The image of digital factories and digital logistics may not be too distant. Logistics personalities will discuss the current direction and development of warehouse and intralogistic technology and technology, the issue of the Internet of Things and Big Data, or the role of man in robotized production. And perhaps also about the future, which is based on artificial intelligence or deep connection of machines and man. In addition to automation, it will focus on what the described changes will mean for development.
Once again this year, the forum includes the gala evening of logistics innovation and the handing-out of the 2019 LOG-IN awards! The competition will award the best innovations and innovators in the past year. This year’s ceremony will be moderated by the famous Czech TV personality, Laďka Něrgešová.
