Looking towards the future

In addition to the criteria of price and quality that will continue to be crucial for the future in logistics, the areas of sustainability and environmental protection will also gain in importance.

The burden on both climate and people through noxious emissions and other environmental impacts (including noise and land use), and the scarcity of available resources, will intensify and have an increased effect on our daily lives.

Competition in environmental protection is required, as well as intelligent state regulations in order to facilitate innovative and holistic system solutions and economies that are as climate-neutral as possible. Globalization and demographic change mean that companies and institutions must deal with people in a responsible and social manner.

Society must increase its focus on maintaining the environment in order to protect future generations.
