Start-ups, corporates or customers:
Who is actually doing the innovating?

The logistics industry is poised to uniquely benefit from the digital transformation. Those who emerge here as drivers have the opportunity to make a lasting impact on the value-adding processes of other sectors as well.

But where and how do the trend-setting innovations happen? Who manages to define the new wave of services and business models? What will be the role of new, outside players? Will we see entirely new business sectors emerge?

Sustainable supply chains:
Can customers and logistics players find common ground?

Many elements of today’s logistics services are not compatible with sustainable business practices. Critical customer target groups have different priorities: They care more about sustainability than speed. E-commerce has brought about a rapid acceleration of delivery times, but this comes at the price of much more traffic and greenhouse gas emissions.

What answers must we provide? What kind of solutions and services will lead to more sustainability? Where can we learn from the customer?

Culture and mindsets for the digital transformation:
Reinvigorate your business by eliminating barriers to innovation?

How do we manage to introduce fundamental, “disruptive” innovations into the supply chain? What we need are teams that see the complex challenges as an opportunity and can move proactively. They also need to develop a routine amid a climate of uncertainty, ambiguity, and rapid change.

But the path to success is a bumpy one. It requires changing how “culture” is defined and practiced. The speed with which the digital transformation is implemented is a critical factor in its success. How do we manage to get ideas and insights to take hold within each link in the chain?

Who and what are we actually waiting for to initiate a successful long-term cultural shift?

Digital disruption:
How are big data, blockchain, and AI changing traditional business concepts and organizational models?

Those who understand the technology behind big data, blockchain, and artificial intelligence recognize the benefits and the unique opportunities they bring. The goal must be to generate insights early on and use them as a basis for decisions that help the company evolve and penetrate new network chains and markets.

By digitizing operating processes, we free people up for other assignments. Artificial intelligence can provide support for strategic tasks. This inevitably has an impact on the interaction of departments and organizational models: Disciplines that were traditionally separated are brought together, and silos are broken down: This is an absolute prerequisite for success in the highly competitive markets of tomorrow.

The challenge for leaders who want to innovate is to take the time to reflect on these issues.
