TECHNOLOGY WILL LEAD TO TRUE DIFFERENTIATION

We believe that technology will create true differentiation between logistic providers and therefore lead to a sustained shift in market share without leading to a monopoly in logistics. There are no universal answers but those who understand their customers, know how to improve customer experience / value through transparency, information availability, and process optimization will escape the trap of commoditization and benefit from profitable growth.

HOW WE WORK

WE DEVELOP THE ACTION PLAN FOR YOUR DIGITAL JOURNEY

Teaming up with you, your managers and logistics experts, we develop the action plan for your digital journey. We follow a systematic, pragmatic and transparent approach – the Digital Navigator Health Check. This can be carried out holistically or focused on individual areas like process efficiency or customer experience.

Step 1: Putting technology into context

We will put technology like IoT, advanced data analytics or AI and of-the-shelf solutions into a logistics business context and will work out together what it means for your company.

Step 2: Determining your current position

Together we will systematically work out where you stand today and what the capabilities are that we can build on. We screen available systems, processes as well as available data and conduct structured interviews and workshops to get a comprehensive picture of the actual situation throughout your organization.

Step 3: Action Plan

From the analysis we jointly derive the fields of action, create clear value propositions that resonate with your customers, and uncover possible operational efficiency gains.

Step 4: Relentless Execution

If required, our team of experts will support you with customizing and implementing digital tools and processes. Our sole focus lies on making it work for you.
