The logistics competence center (LKZ) is an innovation center for transport and logistics located in Prien am Chiemsee and was opened 1998 in order to establish companies and institutes. At the moment 16 companies with more than 70 employees are located in the center in Prien. The big network with partners from whole Germany and Europe tailors the different competences to the complex requirements of the customers.
Central contact for the logistics competence center is the LKZ Prien GmbH. The LKZ Prien GmbH expert team acquires projects under the leadership of the executive manager Karl Fischer and designs them from the first idea up to the implementation in ideal and practice-oriented logistics solutions. One of the original functions still is the general management of the center.
As a part of the BMWi manager training programme a delegation from Iran with various companies and sectors visited the LKZ Prien GmbH.
Karl Fischer (managing director of LKZ Prien GmbH) first presented the structure of the company. He clarified questions about the customer structure and about logistical innovations for example in the field of telematics. Another issue was the combined transport. There were discussions about transhipment methods and legal regulations in Europe compared to Iran.
The LKZ Prien GmbH presented at the fair transport logistic in Munich the project “Future Trailer for road and rail” together with the forwarder Zitzlsperger, the semitrailer producers Krone, Schmitz Cargobull and Schwarmüller as well as the railway company TX Logistik.
The aim of the project “Future Trailer for road and rail ” is to create a “Clearance Envelope” for the future intermodal transport so that semitrailers can flexibly be used on road and rail.
The LKZ network with resident companies, virtual partners and cooperation partners stands for highest competence in the fields of logistics and transport. There is an intensive cooperation especially with the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics IML, which took over the scientific support since the foundation of the LKZ.
