The future of transportation and shipping

SVP supports international companies as they enter the German, Austrian and Swiss markets. We have tremendous sector-specific expertise when it comes to market or location analyses, as well as identifying clients or business partners in the DACH region. The globalisation of production and consumption has fuelled transportation for years. Roughly 2.8 billion packages were transported across Germany by different shipping providers in 2015 – 1.3 billion of which were purchased online. The logistics industry is booming, yet at the same time companies need to overcome wide-sweeping changes and tremendous obstacles. Digitisation, automation, logistics 4.0 and sustainable mobility are key issues within the sector. In order to stay competitive, market participants have to adapt their business models and services. Trend analyses, competition monitoring and market analyses are important tools for management to make the right decisions and the ever faster-paced market adjustments necessary.

German companies are extremely well positioned when it comes to process optimisation. However, it’s often just the courage to move forward with innovative products and business models that is wanting.

The trend and technology analyses, potential analyses, and competition and customer surveys that SVP offers provide targeted support to its customers with new strategies and business areas or new market opportunities, in Germany and beyond.
