Podium place for H.Essers during Logistics Hackathon

Congrats to our -Local Heroes- H.Essers team; Isabelle Peeters, Glenn Verbist, Joris Van Der Have, Ruben Neven and Thomas Havermans.

They were able to succesfully hack the code and win the 1st price in the “War for Trucks” challenge for Arcelor Mittal during the Logistics Hackathon last weekend organised by OTM and Dockflow. They pitched a solution that included smart coupling on secured parkings of long distance loads, with last-mile delivery by Local Heroes enabled by a web-based platform for the local carriers.

The jury, composed of David De Rocker, Manager Transport & Logistics at Arcelor Mittal and Jos Marinus, President at VIB, praised the team for their smart, simple and feasible solution and hands-on approach.

Well done and see you next year for another challenge!
