Companies in the industrial, trading and logistics services throughout Germany are invited to open their doors on April 19, 2018 (Supply Chain Day) and take visitors behind the scenes of logistics and supply chain management. Around 260 events across Germany and in eight other countries will give the public insight into the wide variety of logistics and supply chain management activities.
Key skill in Germany
Logistics involves the management of the flow of goods between the points of origin and consumption to meet requirements of customers or corporations across the globe. The forward-looking sector is a core skill in Germany. Many events on the 11th Supply Chain Day (Tag der Logistik) are free while others must be registered beforehand. Institutes can showcase their logistics and supply chain management projects. Educational and training centres will present their seminars and courses in logistics and supply chain management.
The sector is crucial to the Port of Hamburg. To boost Hamburg’s position as one of the leading logistics centres in northern Europe, the Ministry of Economic and Labour Affairs launched the Logistik-Initiative Hamburg with over 2,000 clients and companies. Earlier this year, the “Digital Hub Logistics” for digital business transformation launched in the Hamburg Metropolitan Region and Germany. The hub aims to attract market leaders, SMEs, start-ups, science, research and providers of further education to Hamburg. It also supports the launch of new digital products, networked businesses and talented, young business people.
