Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer said:

“This university prize shows our support for the logistics operations of the future – with it we’re sending an important message. Thanks to highly trained experts Germany is the leading logistics location. The Hochschule für Technik Stuttgart manages to combine logistics, the environment and digitalisation in an intelligent way. The Master’s degree ‘Environment-oriented Logistics’ makes it a pioneer in the field of innovative logistics.”

The Federal Ministry for Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) issues the prize for outstanding courses at German universities in the field of logistics. This year it also came with funds of 5,000 euros for the first time. The goal is to strengthen German university courses in the field of freight transport and logistics in order to inspire young people to choose a degree in logistics.
