  • In order to meet delivery deadlines, legal regulations and contractual agreements, the seamless digitalization of logistics processes is becoming a strategic advantage in almost every industry. The integration of high-performance technologies and the networking of all relevant players form the basis for greater transparency, efficiency and flexibility in the supply chain. This development requires not only a reassessment of existing processes, but also an adaptation to the dynamic requirements of the market. In our latest article on the blog, we discuss the three pillars that are fundamental for an intelligent, adaptive and sustainable supply chain management.

  • In order to meet the ever-changing requirements of international goods movements, companies must constantly improve and develop their logistics and transportation strategies. Real-time monitoring and integrative aspects are becoming increasingly important in the context, as digital solutions are essential for managing physical goods. The trend towards Smart Logistics is likely to gain further momentum in the coming years: According to recent studies many companies are planning to maintain or increase their investments in the digitalization of logistics by 2026. In our latest article on the blog, we discuss how companies are benefiting from the use of digital technologies such as transportation management, collaborative platforms and artificial intelligence.

  • In view of increasing legal requirements, sanction regulations and heightened public interest, companies are strategically strengthening their focus on sustainability. Under the Supply Chain Act or the new EU CSR Directive, it is therefore not just a matter of a company’s direct environmental impact, but also of Scope 3, i.e. the indirect emissions along the supply chain. Hence, if companies seek to achieve a net-zero objective, their efforts to reduce emissions must also focus on Scope 3. We discuss how environmental aspects can be integrated into the SCM strategy in order to advance the decarbonization of the entire value creation process.

  • Supply chain management encompasses all the steps involved in delivering a product or service from production to the end consumer. The longer and more complex a global supply chain is, the greater the risk of disruption between the extraction of raw materials and the point of sale (POS). So how can companies set up to be as resilient as possible in order to respond to volatile consumer behavior and rapidly changing economic conditions? In our latest article on the blog, we discuss the Lean and Agile models for supply chain management and explain how companies can benefit from the advantages of both strategies with a hybrid approach.

  • In the globalized business world, supply chain optimization is crucially important for companies. The focus has shifted significantly in recent years: instead of concentrating exclusively on raising internal efficiency, meeting customer expectations is increasingly becoming the focus of strategic corporate alignment. Nowadays, customers appreciate being able to trace the route and origin of goods in order to make fact-based decisions about their purchases. In our blog article, we explain how real-time transparency in supply chain management (SCM) can help to significantly improve the customer experience.

  • Digital supply chain management represents a paradigm shift in the design and management of supply chains. In order to overcome the challenges and complexity of today’s value chains, companies are increasingly relying on innovative technologies and analytical tools. The latter enable them to monitor the entire supply chain in real time and react immediately to changes. We discuss how digital SCM is changing operational processes and what role predictive analytics plays in this context.

  • Global business processes are in a constant state of flux. This means that the requirements for modern supply chains are becoming increasingly complex. In order to maintain a balance between corporate stability and security on the one side and a flexible adaptation to changing market conditions and technological developments on the other side, business leaders are increasingly turning to hybrid supply chains. The latter combine different logistics approaches to ensure efficiency, resilience and flexibility. In this article, we explain which models of hybrid supply chains are available and what advantages and challenges they entail.

  • As a key component of Supply Chain Management, Supplier Management refers to the strategic management and control of a company’s relationships with its suppliers. Punctuality, quality and sustainability in particular play a decisive role in the selection and evaluation of the right suppliers, as these aspects automatically impact procurement. In this article, we explain how you can utilize smart supplier management and thus optimize purchasing processes. Further, we discuss the role that data exchange and transparency play in this context.

  • Coordinating and monitoring international supply chains and cross-border logistics is a challenge. Freight forwarders need to deal with different customs regulations, trade agreements and laws, while at the same time demands for environmentally friendly and sustainable transport solutions are rising. Freight forwarding is therefore increasingly using technology in order to simplify and streamline processes: Digital transformation has significantly changed the way goods are moved. We discuss how the different areas of freight management can be optimized with the help of digital solutions.

  • Not only are companies constantly exposed to new challenges in their operating business – they also need to remain agile with regard to increasing sustainability criteria. This enhances the willingness to rethink and adapt supply chain processes: Green logistics aims to integrate environmental sustainability into all phases of logistics activities and thus makes a positive contribution to environmental protection. In our latest article on the blog, we discuss what options companies have to implement sustainability goals along their supply chain and what challenges need to be mastered in the process.
