On Thursday evening, TIS GmbH was honored as Bocholt’s company of the year 2016 as part of a ceremony.
Digitization affects all industries today and creates new perspectives with a future even in more traditional occupational fields. This only changes requirements. Graduates in IT have grown up with technology in their daily lives, have learned to handle computers and software both in their leisure time as well as at school. The best prerequisite for starting a career in technology-oriented fields at different levels.
On October 1st, Josef Bielefeld, founder and owner of TIS, handed over his part of the management to Markus Vinke. This means that TIS is undergoing the first generation change 30 years after its founding.
The Telematics Conference of TIS addressed the question of which megatrends are really relevant for the industry in the long run – and which ones can only be looked at as a ”hype”. Whether autonomous driving, Internet of Things or Wearable Technologies – the 4th InnoMATIK in top-class presentations delivered material for discussion and reflection on the future of the logistics industry. In addition to technical issues this time also the 30-year anniversary of TIS was a major event on the agenda and was extensively celebrated with more than 90 visitors on the evening of May 18th.
This year again TIS participates in the campaign „STADTRADELN – Radeln für ein gutes Klima“ (“CITY CYCLING – Cycling for a good climate”). Organized for the ninth time already, the nationwide competition aims to promote climate protection and bicycle traffic in the participating cities.
