DFDS is there to get inspiration and share knowledge with the industry. Tap into our insights here.

Communication is king

In the automotive industry, everything is moving faster and faster. This comes with big logistic challenges for auto manufactures and OEMs alike.

Jelle Van Koevorden, DFDS Business Development Manager, knows how to move fast with his customers and work closely with them to think outside the box and find solutions together.

Supply chain visibility and the future of logistics

Huge amounts of data can be overwhelming for logistics companies. But what if you could exploit vast numbers of global data sources and zero in on the exact information you to need to react to disruptions in your supply chain in real time?

Marian Pufahl, CEO and Co-founder of Berlin-based start-up, Synfioo, can tell you how. In this video, he also explains why he believes cooperation is so important in the logistics industry and he shares his vision for the future of logistics.

The key to a flexible supply chain

As companies across the supply chain work to achieve faster and more efficient deliveries, automation has become the go-to tool.

Find out from Philipp Striebel, Partner Manager at AutoStore, experts in robotic storage capacity, how to approach incorporating more automation into your digital strategy.

Global challenges in the logistics industry

Many important topics are being discussed at Transport Logistic, from the driver shortage to sustainability to digitalization.

Perhaps no one at the fair has a more comprehensive view of these topics than Stefan Rummel, Managing Director of Messe München. Here he discusses the geo-political challenges logistics companies face and key opportunities he sees for the future.

Integrating IoT into your digital strategy

Logistics companies across Europe are exploring the potential of IoT and how to integrate it into their digital strategies. But is the technology ready for us? And if so, how can we use it to bring visibility to the supply chain?

Alexander Lutze, Head of BPW Innovation Lab, has some answers.

From Gothenburg to Ghent, from Aberdeen to Istanbul

We gathered again in Munich to meet some old friends and to make some new ones; to share good ideas over great food and to look at the future together.

We loved being in your company and getting to know you - let's stay in touch!
