Relevance. “Economic growth and logistical performance are inextricably linked. The foundations of future prosperity are properly functioning and globally connected flows. For this, we need a strong freight transport and logistics industry that organizes coordinates and moves these mobility flows – safety securely quickly and efficiently.”

Dorothea Bär, 2017

Increasing competitiveness should be based on the use of logistics tools as a key part of business processes for managing materials, services, information and capital flows. Today, logistics is essential for creating visibility in the supply chain of the company, by providing tracking of the movement of goods in real time, as well as increasing revenue through the service component. Logistics ensures the structuring of operations to maximize customer satisfaction, including packaging, storage, distribution and maintenance.
