  • 34. The effects of the economic crisis on the German logistics sector
    „Due totheeconomiccrisis, a dropofupto 9% ofthelogisticsmarketwas expected.“ [Peter Klaus, authorof TOP 100 in European Transport and Logistics Services 2009/2010]
    The economic crisis had a negative impact on all transport modes
    Development of quantity of goods transported
    Hundreds of orders in shipbuilding (vessels, tankers, etc.) have been
    cancelled during 2009
    Rail freight dropped considerably (e.g. Deutsche Bahn freight volumes decreased with 19% over 2009, with peaks of 40%)
    Truck traffic decreased (e.g. Deutsche Tollcollect income dropped with 18% over 2009)

  • 35. German companies affected by the economic crisis
    "We are far from overcoming the financial crisis, in particular with respect to its consequences on the real economy in 2009”
    [Norbert Reithofer, Chairman of BMW; Nov 4, 2008]
    "Following the dramatic drop in our global business in the fourth quarter of 2008, demand for chemical products has not picked up since the start of 2009. A reversal of the trend is not yet in sight“ [Jürgen Hambrecht, CEO and Chairman of the Board of BASF; Feb 26, 2009]
    "Our business is an early indicator, but we have no backlog, so I cannot say how things will develop“
    [Frank Appel, Chief Executive of Deutsche Post DHL; Jun 19, 2009]
    “…because of the financial crisis parts of Siemens' business had experienced a decline of orders of as much as 70% … it will take a long time until there will be an expansion of our capacities again” [Peter Loescher, Chief Executive of Siemens; Oct 25, 2009]

  • 40. Container business in times of the crisis
    Container handling (in million TEU)
    The influence of the crisis on the
    container business was enormous.
    • The amount of goods transported declined significantly.
    • 41. The Port of Hamburg experienced at 28% drop in container handling, which translates to 7,01 Million TEU.
    • 42. Transport costs for standard containers dropped dramatically.
    Container handling on specificshippingroutes
    • The decline in consumer demand had a strong effect on the amount of goods transported. This effected container handling on all shipping routes.
    • 43. Placing the hopes on increasing transport volumes, especially on Asian shipping routes, no other country has ordered the number of container vessels Germany has.
    • 44. Only when the Asian economy picks up again, transport volumes will also increase.

  • 102. Actions taken: networks and co-operations
    For Renault Nissan Europe the crisis has been a key factor
    for extensive restructuring of logistics and supply chain
    Management into an alliance between the two OEMs.
    Merging the supply chain divisions from each OEM has
    created a single logistics function for the extended Europe region.
    “In putting together the two models, we are not saying that ‘one is right’, and ‘one is wrong,’ but it is the mix that is essential. We will take what is best from each.”

    [PawelStelmaszczyk, head of unit at the transport & energy department of the European Commission]
    • choosing between different modes of transport is not enough
    • 111. an integrated transport system based on flows, not modes, is needed
    “We need to focus less on CO2 emissions of trucks and ships and focus more on integrated and bundled services within a common logistics network”
    [Egon Christ, head of transport logistics for Daimler]

    • 112. enables the user to make more environmentally-sound decisions and comply with certain regulations (e.g. Kyoto Protocol)
    • 113. provides the ability to set a cap on carbon emissions in the supply chain by forcing  a non-negotiable constraint on carbon footprint while evaluating logistics costs and service  trade-offs [David Simchi-Levi,Ph.D.]

    Main objectives
    • Improve logistics processes
    • 133. Optimize goods flow
    • 134. Improve in-store goods availability
    Outcomes thanks to the use of RFID
    • Streamlining of processes while cutting costs (esp. labor costs)
    • 135. Annual cost savings around 8.5 million €
    Pilot study: “Cross borderVisibility“ (From Hong Kong to Unna)
    • Metro Group cooperation with partners like Intel, the logistics service provider Fat Kee Stevedores Ltd. and the standards organization GS1 Hong Kong
    • 136. Fat Kee Stevedores Ltd. pools products from different manufacturers, prepares them for shipment and tags them with RFID transponders.
    • 137. An RFID reader at the outgoing goods portal of the exporter records the consignment and automatically checks that it is complete.
    • 138. Once the goods have arrived at the METRO GROUP distribution center in Unna, they are again checked using RFID. In a matter of seconds, a reader at the incoming goods portal checks whether all products ordered have arrived. []
  • Innovations driven by legislation, e.g. legislator-defined processes: Inspection methods
    • targeting and risk management process
    • 139. screen 100% of all information of inbound containers

  • 145. Innovations driven by logistics service providers, e.g. SkySails
    The fact that most supply chain innovations are industry-driven, explains the excitement of the following press release:
    “…a [logistic service provider] from the ocean shipping sector counts on new, intelligent solutions. The Company developes – mind you as logistician! – new innovations for its customers on its own.”
