The BVL initiated study "Trends and Strategies in Logistics and Supply Chain Management" is a highly appreciated source of information for the review of current planning priorities, future strategic plans, benchmarking, gap analysis, and a basis for dialogue and discussion in the logistics community. As Germany’s logistics sector expanded globally, the study has once again continued to expand its boundaries to consider global trends and strategies as well.
The transport logistic in Munich is the world´s biggest trade show for logistics and supply chain management with more than 53,000 visitors from all over the world.

While sentiment among the logistics service providers is significantly more optimistic, the assessment scores of the users of logistics services in industry and trade are more or less unchanged. Both sides of the market now agree in their assessment of current business. Around 40 percent of companies are willing to play a part in funding investment in infrastructure, provided that this investment noticeably improves the quality.
