What is a Hackathon?

According to Hackathon.guide;

  • Hacking is creative problem solving (It does not have to be about technology).
  • A hackathon is any event of any duration where people come together to solve problems

In an effort to help push innovation in logistics while promoting and nurturing talent in the industry, we want to tackle the conundrum: 'How are logistics companies going to innovate to drive business in 2017 and beyond?' That's why we've put together the Disrupt Logistics Hackathon so we can bring together the brightest young talent at the industry's premier event - the 3PL & Supply Chain Summit: Chicago.
