The emerging platform economy in freight logistics

The ubiquitous business models of e-commerce platforms in the business-to-consumer sector are increasingly being transferred to the business-to-business sector. In the emerging platform economy, an increasing shift to industry platforms in the freight logistics sector can be observed. These business-to-business industry platforms represent a revolutionary paradigm shift, as they offer logistics service providers the opportunity to organise themselves in business networks and carry out data transactions in the supply more efficient and with high transparency.New business relationships are being created and business processes are changing in terms of transport planning and control as well as the provision of information from production to consumption. Decisive here is the use of blockchain technology, which ensures transparency, traceability and security of data transactions between the companies involved.

Strategies for Greener Logistics

When speaking or designing sustainability strategies, the three prioritization levels “reduce, reuse, recycle” are often used as a framework for defining ecological measures. When transferring this to logistics, the latter two: Reusing and recycling apply to equipment and packaging but not to business processes. This leaves us with the first one: The reduction of carbon emissions. To make this as easy to understand as possible,here are four solutions to implement greener logistics.

Accelerating the Supply Chain decarbonization with technology

Companies must help prevent the worst impacts of climate change by reducing their green house gas emissions (GHG). It has to happen as quickly as possible and as far down the Supply Chain as possible. The Supply Chains are responsible for the majority of global emissions. In this article we will investigate, how the Supply Chain can accelerate the journey to net zero emissions with advanced Supply Chain technology.

If You Can’t Measure It, You Can’t Improve It

This slogan may seem a bit trite by now, but in terms of logistics and global supply chains it is indispensable when it comes to making shipping goods from A to B more sustainable. In the fight for a more sustainable and climate friendly economy, people are now not only skipping school on Fridays, but are also looking for intelligent and innovative technologies and solutions.

Automatic warehouse inventory overnight?

Checking inventory fully automatically every night without the need for staff and having the perfect data in the system the next morning? This would be an important step, especially for sensitive markets such as the food and pharmaceutical industries, as the improved data quality would reduce stock shortages and also avoid production stops that would otherwise often be necessary.
