UK students win design award

Published:  31 July, 2018

TOYOTA MATERIAL HANDLING EUROPE says when it announced the winners of its design and engineering competition earlier this year, it was great to see that the winning team was from the UK.

The winning design was AL.PACKER by Hannah Rayner and Matt Putman from Loughborough University, an application that provides a socially sustainable solution to last-mile package delivery. It abandons the traditional supply chain and introduces a micro-entrepreneur third stakeholder that is guaranteed to accept the delivery.

Logiconomi is the word Toyota Material Handling uses to describe its way of thinking - aiming for lean processes, eliminating waste, maximising efficiency and reducing cost. All with the help of innovation and collaboration with like-minded partners. First launched in 2014, the design competition was initiated to open a dialogue with young designers and welcome fresh ideas.
