Start-up Logistics Radar

700+ innovative ideas for logistics

Focus on innovation and value creation for SMEs

SMEs have few resources and/or time to consistently address the issue of innovation. In addition, it is difficult to keep track of the many trends and challenges.

Therefore, the LIHH has established the "Start-up Logistics Radar" to enable SMEs to actively manage innovation with a low-threshold and fast approach.


The LIHH has collected more than 700 innovative ideas for the logistics industry in its start-up database. We screen national and international start-ups and work together with business associations in India, Singapore and Brazil, for example.

In the medium term, it will be possible to access the database via an online solution.

With the Start-up Radar Logistics, SMEs are given the opportunity to brief the LIHH on their individual challenges. After research in the LIHH database and with other partners, the companies then receive a shortlist of 6-12 start-ups and a brief description. The companies can then decide which young companies are of interest to them.

To get to know and network SMEs and start-ups, the LIHH organises several pitch events a year. On request, individual pitch events for companies and associations can also be curated.

Members can contact the LIHH (jr@hamburg-logistik.net) at any time and informally (by e-mail) outline their question or challenge.


Startups will be added to the database free of charge after providing some information as well as a pitch deck and a check by the LIHH. All information can be found in the download area.

As soon as member companies show interest in a startup, it will be contacted and invited to the next possible matching event. Alternatively to the personal presence, a pitch video (6 minutes maximum length) can be submitted.

You are an SME and want to make progress or learn more in the field of innovation? You are a logistics start-up and are looking for customers or you are interested in quick projects and prototypes?
