The International Logistics Exhibition of Barcelona (SIL), organized by the Consorci de la Zona Franca de Barcelona (CZFB) which will be held from 31 May to 2 June in Hall 8 of the Montjuic-Plaza España exhibition centre at Fira de Barcelona, has already selected, together with La Salle Technova, the 10 best start-up companies from the approximately 150 that had applied, for its Start-up Innovation Hub.


Pere Navarro, special delegate of the State in the Consorci de la Zona Franca de Barcelona, stressed that “despite the enormous potential and talent displayed by all the initiatives that registered for the Start-up Innovation Hub, from the CZFB and in collaboration with La Salle Technova, we have assessed the ten proposals that stand out on the basis of their disruptive nature. The logistics sector has demonstrated its ability to transform and adapt to change and we believe that start-ups play a key role in this regard”.


The ten initiatives are eligible for the SIL awards in the Best Start-up Award category, which will be presented during the Logistics Night, and the selected projects will be published in the SIL Barcelona start-up directory as the best start-ups of the year.


Knowledge, innovation and talent

In the field of eCommerce and Retail, three young Spanish companies stand out for their creative and innovative solutions to revolutionize this sector. Yopidoya is an application that allows customers to order and pay from the table in a restaurant, using their smartphone and without downloads. The tool includes a series of functionalities that facilitate the dining experience for both customers and waiters. For its part, Sense’s differential proposal is based on offering a solution that allows users to save all their favorite products from a single application. In the case of Feeder, it was created to revolutionize the future of facial recognition in marketing.


In the Supply Chain sector, the selected companies were BeChained, a proposal that aims to optimize energy consumption, reduce CO2 emissions and certify the carbon footprint through an artificial intelligence platform to decarbonize and ensure a balanced energy network; Alterity, which is committed to the manufacture of sustainable, high- performance lithium batteries; Estoko, is an initiative that aims to provide solutions for warehouse stocks throughout Spain; and Gandolapp, a next-gen artificial intelligence voice assistant for light and heavy vehicles drivers aiming to improve their working conditions, to generate new sources of revenue by creating a democratized community and to move towards a safe and green driving.


There is also an international presence among the nominees with ClearQuote, a German app created in 2020 that helps to make commercial vehicle inspections more efficient and accurate using smartphone images and artificial intelligence. The other initiatives in the field of logistics were Zeemcoin, the first tokenized platform in the electric mobility industry, and Usyncro, which defines itself as the logistics tool of the future, as it simplifies the management of shipments by synchronizing everyone involved, as well as transactions and documents in one place.
