What you can take away
The book is designed as a kind of guide through the transformation of the logistics industry and encourages people to dare to innovate more: High practical relevance, an understandable overview of new technologies and their fields of application, clear advice for solution-oriented introduction and concrete implementation, and finally a vision of where one’s own company can go in the future, be it in production with the associated logistics processes, but also for the entire supply chain all the way to the customer.
