The logistics business counts among the key components of the larger economy. Not only does it link production and consumption, but it has lately started providing additional services related to production, and is in many areas already integrated in manufacturing sub-processes. Requirements have increased at both the vendor and the consumer end. The logistics industry lives up to these challenges, whether they involve pre-assembly or same-hour delivery.
The highly complex and time-sensitive workflows in logistics will often go unnoticed. One reason for this is that logistics processes tend to be hidden from view: They transpire in large, remote logistics centres close to motorway interchanges or else in trading estates or industrial zones on the outskirts of major cities. It is remindful of the old adage “out of sight, out of mind” when international market operators muse why Germany, one of the biggest international export nations and global logistics market leader, maintains such a low profile in regard to its logistics assets.
