Research Topics

We continuously analyze trends and technologies that impact the transport and logistics industry.

Artificial Intelligence

In algorithms we trust - for a good reason. Artificial Intelligence is estimated to have a potential value impact of 1.2-2 trillion Euros a year in manufacturing and supply chain alone (Source: McKinsey)

Asset Sharing

Shared assets become increasingly important as the demand of more flexibility rises. The “shareconomy” allows for a more efficient, demand-driven utilization of available resources.

Digital Supply Chain

Leaders in the digital supply chain have more than 40% higher operating margins. To enable the Digital Supply Chain means enabling our partners to be faster, more accurate and more efficient. (Souce:CG)


The Internet of Things empowers smart logistics and impacts the transformation of the transport and logistics industry on a huge scale.  

Predictive Analytics

93% of shippers and 98% of third-party logistics firms feel like data-driven decision-making is crucial to supply chain activities. (Source: Council of Supply Chain mAnagement Professionals)
