WDP has been awarded the prestigious "onderneming of het jaar" award in 2017 due to its inclusive leadership, innovation track and long term vision.

Who are we looking for?

EYnovation is looking for startups working on groundbreaking ways to innovate the logistics, real estate and warehousing sector. We are specifically looking for innovative services in one of the following areas:

Innovation in and around the building
  • Smart Buildings: For example leveraging IoT connectivity, sensors and the cloud to remotely monitor and control a range of building systems from heating and air conditioning, to lighting and security systems.
  • Sustainability and Energy: For example new Battery storage technologies for electricity from solar panels, but also smart grid technologies, etc.
  • Robotics and Drones: Automation is key in the logistics and supply chain sectors. Often, the greater the automation in processes, the more efficient they become. How can robots and drones play a part in improving levels of automation in warehousing?
  • Digitizing the Customer Relationship: How can efficiency be improved on every level with the customer, ranging from creating extra services to customers, creating a seamless integration between offline and online, integrate better sales and marketing processes etc. in this sector?
  • Omnichannel Operations: As the future is most definitely digital, warehousing will have to adapt to meet the needs of this globally redefining commerce sector.

Other emerging technologies

  • Big Data Analytics (e.g. Ideal Location builder – to find best locations for warehouses)
  • Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
  • Blockchain
  • Augmented and Virtual Reality
