Applications are now open for the Toyota Logistic Design Competition 2020. Organized every two years by Toyota Material Handling Europe, the 2020 edition of the Toyota Logistic Design Competition is now open. Likewise, this year’s competition theme ‘Baggage handling: Can you make it fly?’ focuses on baggage handling solutions for airports. In this edition, the formerly European competition opens its door to design students all over the globe. further, With billions of pieces of baggage being handled at airports around the world each year, baggage handling is a major operation which Toyota Material Handling Europe is increasing its focus on.
Moreover, That’s why Toyota is calling all design students and recent graduates (2019) around the world to come up with a solution to improve the logistics of baggage handling at airports. Whether it’s a partial or a full solution from check-in to baggage drop, transport to the terminal, to the aircraft, and/or arrival at its destination.
“While two years ago we focused on the last-mile delivery of packages, this year’s challenge is about baggage handling at airports, which we feel is in need of a major makeover,” says Magnus Oliveira Andersson, Head of Design at Toyota Material Handling Europe. Staying in touch with and also, listening to young designers is crucial to their success as a design studio. Also, Change is, as they say, the only constant.
The Toyota Logistic Design Competition is also, part of Toyota’s Logiconomi programme. Further, Logiconomi is the word Toyota Material Handling uses to describe its way of thinking – aiming for ‘lean’ processes, eliminating waste, maximizing efficiency and also, reducing cost.
