Challenges of e-business for Logistics
What kind of challenges electronic business and collaborative networks place on Logistics? What kind of possibilities new emerging technologies offer for management of physical material flow?

Answers to these questions are sought after in the new Tekes, the National Technology Agency, technology programme e-Business Logistics (ELO). The programme lasts for four years with an estimated budget of 25 million EUR.
