The logistics industry is and will continue to be a dynamic growth field.

Logistics companies must proactively meet a wide range of challenges in order to remain competitive in the long term. These challenges include latent pressure on margins, increasing demand for sustainable transport solutions, changing customer requirements, digitalization, and automation, as well as a shortage of skilled workers.
