The basis for these decisions is sound data. However, using valid statistical data to describe logistics is possible only to a very limited extent, as this is a cross-sectional industry. In other words, logistical processes and services are part of almost every industry, with the result that official statistics underrepresent logistics or hardly describe it at all.
Our vision of a transparent logistics market#
Digitization is now increasing the availability of data in the logistics environment, but it does not increase transparency. For more data to actually lead to better decisions, it must be qualified in a well-founded way. This in turn requires a grasp of how to select the correct and relevant data, recourse to a cross-sector database and corresponding process and domain knowledge.
That explains our ongoing research, to extract the data that is important for the logistics market, get to know companies, build up new databases and prepare them for specific target groups. So that the logistics market gradually becomes more transparent.
