Trends and Strategies in Logistics 2008

The topics of the 11th survey consist of the "classics" -topics that have been regularly surveyed since 1988 - and the highly topical issues of environment, safety, internationalization and intercultural management.

The topics are mainly evaluated on an industry-specific basis. In parts, trend estimates are made for the year 2015. Through our international partners and cooperation contacts, an additional international comparison is made with China, the USA and parts of Europe.
The study includes statements on the following topics:

  • Megatrends 
  • Logistics strategies and target systems
  • Logistics projects and innovations
  • Logistics indicators and logistics costs
  • Tasks of logistics, outsourcing
  • Germany as a logistics location
  • Investments in logistics
  • Employee requirements and qualifications 
  • Further training in logistics
  • Environmental protection and resource conservation
  • Safety and security
  • Internationalization
  • Intercultural management

The overall results of the study will be published in mid-October 2008 and will be presented for the first time at the 25th German Logistics Congress of the Bundesvereinigung Logistik e.V. in Berlin on October 23, 2008.
