Open Innovation Challenge: MultiRELOAD - Transportation Solutions Wanted


The search is on for cost-effective ideas to change the transport market. How to transport different types of goods, bulk and general cargo - also on pallets, on inland waterways? Your chance to bring your idea and develop a business model.
