The 11th Carpathian Logistics Congress CLC 2023 took place in Prague (Czech Republic) on November 8 - 10, 2023. The congress was organised by Škoda Auto University in cooperation with Technical University of Košice, AGH University of Krakow and other important partners. More than 90 participants from 9 countries listened to 32 lectures and viewed 29 posters.

We were pleased that Škoda Logistics was again the main partner of the CLC Congress hosted in the Czech Republic.

The congress was opened with an online lecture by Prof. Thomas Wimmer from Bundesvereinigung Logistik (BVL) e.V. (Germany). He dedicated his lecture to current trends and challenges in supply chain management. The following plenary lecture was given by Dr. Michal Demečko from Škoda Auto (Czech Republic). This lecture dealt with the transition from engine to battery production (automation of logistics processes in battery production). In the third lecture, Prof. Ingo Gestring from HTW Dresden University of Applied Sciences (Germany), addressed the question: will the new german supply chain act save the world? Impressions from different countries. The last plenary lecture was given by Prof. Agnieszka Tubis from Wroclaw University of Science and Technology (Poland), where she introduced the operational risk in Logistics 4.0 systems.

However, the thematic scope of the lectures at the conference was traditionally much broader. Researchers presented innovations not only in supply chain management (SCM), strategy and planning, suitanable logistics processes or advanced logistics technologies, but also in AI-based logistics application or challenges of artificial intelligence in Logistics and SCM.

Friday's programme was devoted to the topic of artificial intelligence, with three invited lectures on Challenges of AI in Logistics presented by experts from Brno University of Technoly, ADASTRA and Škoda Auto. For pre-registered participants there was also a practical workshop by Prof. Thomas Liebetruth from the University of Applied Sciences (Germany) dedicated to AI in a daily work with practical demonstrations and a subsequent panel discussion with experts in this field with the participation of a virtual expert.

The prize for the best poster has been awarded to Jakub Kovalčík from Technical University of Košice (Slovakia). In his poster he presented the Possibilities of Building Robotic Workplaces with the Help of Educational Robots. Also, two honorable mentions have been awarded to Norbert Chamier- Gliszczyński, Adam Wyszomirski, Marcin Olkiewicz and Joanna Dyczkowska from Koszalin University of Technology (Poland) and to David Staš and his colleague Tomáš Malčic from Škoda Auto University (Czech Republic).

On Thursday afternoon, congress participants had the opportunity to visit the Škoda Auto plant and take part in an excursion of top-class solutions in Škoda Logistics.

The next 12th CLC Congress will be held in 2024 in Krakow (Poland).

Abstract: The paper is aimed at the experimental testing of the impact energy of conveyor belts in terms of their resistance to puncture using the Design of Experiment (DOE) method. The plan of the experiment consists of selecting a response i.e., the analysed impact energy, defining selected factors: A ‒ impact height; B ‒ hammer weight; and C ‒ impactor type, designing and implementing the experiment, and evaluating the significance of the effects of the individual factors and their interactions using a t-test, which is expressed in the output by means of the p-value.
