In 2001, a logistics software appreciation day was held at Aston University, Birmingham, where students received a useful introduction to leading-edge products for the logistics sector. Lecturers have insufficient time to be updated with all software products, but their students need to know about the latest products and applications. The Radical, Paragon, Toolsgroup and 3T demonstrated their products and explained their application to the logistics environment.
