Transport and logistics
Delivering goods to their destinations faster, more reliably and at a lower cost than competitors: This is what characterises transport quality and outstanding logistics. And international competition is decided by these factors.
The industry is facing great challenges: fluctuating energy costs and actions in the field of environmental protection continue to exert pressure on costs. New technologies make the flow of goods more dynamic. Physical processes are being replaced by digitised and networked business processes. Tracking of goods via electronic signals and sensors is becoming increasingly pervasive. Identification systems such as RFID (radio frequency identification) are now standard in transport and logistics.
What were previously complex logistics processes are handled in seconds via data interfaces. This also means accelerating the supply chain, necessitating further process optimisation of transport capacities. And customers expect goods tracking in real time. These challenges necessitate innovative logistics solutions.
Digital delivery notes and improved returns management are just a few areas in which the use of IT will continue to grow. More technology in the warehouse or the use of augmented reality with pick-by-vision models are further steps to boost productivity, drive rationalisation and save costs. Smart investment in new, digital solutions is the key to success in the industry. This is the only way to safeguard or expand one’s own position in the face of increasing local and international competition.
