The 2020 edition of the Toyota Logistic Design Competition is now open, under the theme of ‘Baggage handling: Can you make it fly?’.

With billions of pieces of baggage being handled at airports around the world each year, baggage handling is a major operation on which Toyota Material Handling Europe is increasing its focus.

For that reason, Toyota is calling all design students and recent graduates (2019) around the world to come up with a solution to improve the logistics of baggage handling at airports.

"While two years ago we focused on the last-mile delivery of packages, this year’s challenge is about baggage handling at airports, which we feel is in need of a major makeover," says Magnus Oliveira Andersson, head of design at Toyota Material Handling Europe. "Staying in touch with and listening to young designers is crucial to our success as a design studio. Change is, as they say, the only constant."

The competition welcomes all submissions until 22 October 2019, after which a panel of professionals working around design and innovation within Toyota will evaluate all completed submissions and determine the finalists. All finalists will get feedback from the jury towards the end of November and a chance to rework their proposals for the final jury session. Experts and industry leaders will make the final decision and select the winners of the competition.

Finalists will be invited to the award ceremony in Sweden and will have their work exhibited at the Hannover Messe in Germany. Additionally, they will be awarded with cash prizes and have the opportunity to apply for a six-month paid internship at the Toyota Material Handling Design Center.
