My offer: Strategy, Logistics,
Digital Transformation, Brexit. And more.

Strategy

Strategy is what you say in retrospect. Or: Strategy is consistently developed from the core of the company, the brand, the market environment and the needs of the target groups. Digital disruption, changes in geopolitics, demographic change, the ongoing trend towards urbanization: Being fit for the future means constantly adjusting the strategy and based on that develop the right products and adapt the organization. The Life Cycle model has never been as up to date as it is now.

An excellent strategy is not defined from the outside, but the right questions, the right input and a good moderation are essential success factors.

Digital Transformation

Blockchain, Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Machine Learning, Autonomous Driving: Digitization is changing everything, including your own business model. At the same time, it offers opportunities as never before, provided that there is a willingness to break new ground.

In order to get organized in the impending digital chaos, it is important to clarify where potential lies in the own value chain and where services in the value chain of the customers are in demand. It is also important to find out if there are not new profitable business fields, either following the customer's benefit and / or following one's own competencies.

Logistics

The warehouse is fully occupied, the logistics service provider has been working for decades with the same contract and without KPIs, the warehouse management system is in urgent need of replacement, EDI is still not used, the working capital is much too high and the locations are historical grown. Who does not know everything?

Objective data, consistently researched information and meaningful analyses form the solid foundations, a lot of experience, an eye on the whole and the corresponding know-how lead to sustainable solution concepts.

Supply Chain Management

Significant potentials can only be identified when looking at the entire supply chain: Where are the costs incurred? Are the locations positioned correctly? What costs do customs and other charges cause? Communication along the supply chain is usually anything but "seamless" and practically never in real time, controlling is usually limited to one's own company division.

Detailed analyses provide the basis, creative approaches show alternatives and scenario calculations identify the potentials. Effective supply chain management needs an overview and a lot of detailed work, the use of the right tools and a consistent implementation.

E-Commerce

New players are revolutionizing business models, producers are gaining direct access to customers, new intermediaries are entering the market, B2C and B2B marketplaces are trying to establish themselves: The digital economy is fundamentally changing commerce.

What opportunities and risks do e-commerce bring? What is the best going-online strategy? Which products or services are in demand? Experience in many sectors and business areas coupled with creative approaches enables the right solution approaches.

City Logistics

The topic "City Logistics" is more relevant than ever. Ongoing urbanization and the necessary climate protection supports this trend. Concrete projects such as the Congestion Charges, inner-city consolidation centres or emission free delivery show how relevant the topic is.

Businesses that deliver to urban areas face both technical and organisational challenges, and communities need creative concepts to keep urban areas alive and functional.

Brexit

UK is leaving the EU, that is fixed. What that means for companies that deliver there or from there is completely unclear. How to organize customs declaration? Will just-in-time-deliveries still be possible? Does a location in the UK make any sense at all? Which rules apply after Brexit? What contracts have to be changed?

If there can be no clear answers then at least scenarios and a plan B are needed. Possible consequences are to be identified and evaluated, alternatives to be found and concepts to be developed that can be implemented in time.
