This year from 25th to 26th June, the 5. SMART CITY LOGISTIK congress takes place in Schloss Ettersburg near Weimar.

Researchers, vehicle manufacturers and pioneers of electric mobility in transport come together to address the big questions of future transportation and find new approaches. The congress invites also fleet managers with no experience with electric commercial vehicles. The event features expert and user lectures, workshops, networking and an exhibition of commercial electric vehicles. One of the highlights will be the presentation of first results of the research project SMART DISTRIBUTION LOGISTIK, which focuses on the economic management of the entire supply chain with electric vehicles.

Judicial decision: Claim for minimum wage for posted drivers contradicts european law
The district court Ansbach confirmed the ruling of the lower instance: The German minimum wage law can’t be applied to cabotage tours of logistics companies from other EU countries. The courts declared the application of the German minimum wage a violation of the European freedom to provide services. If the employee’s residence remains in his home country (provided it’s a state in the EU) for the duration of the short-term employment in Germany, the protective purpose of the law would not be compromised. The first legally binding decision of o civil court about the application of the minimum wage law to cabotage transports could become a precedent. A logistics company from Poland had filed a lawsuit because the German contracting authority withheld payments with the justification that the Polish company hadn’t provided proof of paying their drivers complying to the German minimum wage.
