This Hackathon offers a pressure cooker environment for creative solutions and exploring new ways of cooperation between international logistic companies and customs organizations. It is also an excellent opportunity to apply the WCO Data Model to actual data and logistics operations.
The outcome should be a viable proof of concepts on the various challenges, but getting up close and personal with fellow developers and peers from all over the world is highly encouraged. It should be fun while working on very real topics!
