Design Competition 2020

The Toyota Logistic Design Competition is hosted by the Toyota Material Handling Europe Design Center.

Toyota Material Handling Europe is calling for submissions for the Toyota Logistic Design Competition 2020 — dedicated to baggage handling processes.


Baggage handling at airports could do with a proper makeover. This is the theme of our fourth design competition, and it’s open to design students and graduates from all over the world. So, if you feel that improving the current systems is your bag, so to speak, we want you to enter this challenge.

You either get to grips with the whole concept of dealing with bags. (Big task.) Or you might want to zero in on a particular aspect of baggage handling. (No small task, either.)

We firmly believe the whole world’s waiting for turgid and flawed baggage handling to go away forever. So, to all of you 2019 design students and graduates, here’s your golden opportunity.

We want you to come up with a solution – or several solutions – that will iron out the wrinkles in this business. Don’t try to second-guess what we’re after. Instead, do exactly what you like! Those of you who are lucky will be handsomely rewarded with a cash prize.

. Who may enter ?

The competition is open to university design students and recent graduates (2019), from all over the world.
