Startup Pitch: The best concepts for the future of logistics

How does optimized transport surveillance work in real time? Which software simplifies the preparation of large datasets? And what exactly does intelligent last-mile-delivery offer? Only three of countless logistics subjects, creative startups are taking care of. Some answers were offered to these and more questions at the Startup Pitch in the DB mindbox in Berlin– as well as a number of awards.

During the DB Schenker Award ceremony the representatives of five startups could present their ideas in front of 100 guests, three minutes each. A jury of representatives from DB Schenker, DB Digital Ventures and Dr. Richard Lutz, Member of the Management Board for Finance and Controlling at Deutsche Bahn, reviewed the concepts.


1. Winner/5,000 Euro: synifoo. Business idea: visualization of the potential for optimization of intermodal transports via real time surveillance and the prediction of disturbances.

2. Winner/2,500 Euro: patya. Business idea: software for Business Analysts, which automates the various steps of preparation of large datasets.

3. Winner/1,000 Euro: parcelbox2go.com. Business idea: intelligent last-mile-logistics with full-service-delivery options.



Complimentary awards were given to the startups Flutaro (integration of transport companies) and Load X (optimal load-management) by Dr. Lutz.
