Ever faster, shorter, more flexible and with increasingly smaller batch sizes: The demands on the logistics sector in the 21st century are as varied as the areas of activity themselves. The planning and management of the flow of goods and information, but also the transport of goods as well as their turnaround and storage are the largest economic sector in Germany after automotive and trade. Around 268 billion euros in sales were generated in logistics across all industries in 2020, in Europe the market volume amounts to around 1,120 billion euros (2018).
The complex processes regularly pose new challenges not only for logistics service providers, but also for manufacturers and their suppliers. This is because only just under half of the services involve the visible movement of goods by service providers. The other half takes place in the planning, management and implementation within companies. It is precisely here that our customers rely on our long-standing and sophisticated expertise.
