Advisory Board

It is important that VIL projects address the demands and needs of logistics companies. In order to ensure that this is the case and that projects actually increase the competitiveness of our companies, project proposals are evaluated by an advisory board.

Projects can only be approved by the Board of Directors if they receive a positive evaluation from the advisory board.

The advisory board is composed of academics as well as industry representatives.
