• Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, global container trade did not suffer a significant decline, while for the years after the pandemic a significant increase has already been predicted

  • External shocks at the global and regional level increase the complexity for logistics companies to be mapped systemically

  • New technologies such as distributed ledgers and artificial intelligence have the potential to disrupt the logistics industry. So far, however, none of the players in the industry have managed to develop a clear competitive advantage from these technologies

Market situation in Logistics

 

The logistics industry has historically been an early adopter of innovations, both technological and digital. Nevertheless, the industry is coming under increasing pressure due to growing dependencies on global political and economic influences. Environmental activists, regulators and rising fuel prices are accelerating change and require industries a high degree of adaptability to maintain or expand their competitive position.
At the same time, new opportunities and business areas are emerging: dynamic pricing models enable a quick response to short-term changes on the cost side. Active capacity and yield management increase the utilisation of fleets and new technologies such as blockchain and artificial intelligence spur movement in the logistics industry.
All of these potentialities have one thing in common, digital infrastructure is necessary for the use of future-oriented technologies. For this, an evaluation and mostly separation of technological and digital legacy systems is a vital challenge for logistics companies. 
Based on many years of experience in highly complex transformation projects, we support our clients in recognising the potential of state-of-the-art technology in the logistics sector, in building the technological foundations for their development and in securing a strong competitive position in an increasingly competitive environment.

 

Industry Passion

 

As in hardly any other industry, digitalisation in the logistics industry enables the targeted management of prevailing complexities. 
The industry is characterised by two potential drivers for the use of digital technologies: frequently fragmented, historically grown and highly complex application landscapes - associated with high maintenance costs and low flexibility simultaneously on the one hand, and considerable potential by using new technologies in the areas of process optimisation and automation on the other hand. 
As a technology think tank and implementors of complex transformations, we support clients from the logistics industry in the best possible way. We efficiently accompany the change towards a sustainable IT strategy and enable our clients to develop new business models and differentiate themselves from their competitors.
