After presentations we talked about the future of open source logistics in the workshop. We would also like to hear your opinion to these (yes or no) questions:

Free open source solutions threaten my current business model?
The harmonisation of IT processes in logistics is urgently needed?
Sustainable logistics can only be achieved when we all join forces?
Individual solutions are always better and faster than joint solutions?
If software development is founded with public money, the code should also be public?

You can ask questions from presenters and from us in LIMOWA.
