LOGISTICS TREND RADAR. DELIVERING INSIGHT TODAY. CREATING VALUE TOMORROW.
DHL Trend Research regularly publishes a key instrument for the global logistics community – the Logistics Trend Radar. Now in its fourth year, the Logistics Trend Radar is a dynamic, living tool that captures the development of society, business and technology trends. It has become an inspiring benchmark for strategy and innovation in the logistics industry and has triggered a number of successful, award-winning pilots both inside and outside of DHL in close collaboration with our customers and partners.
Since the last update of the Logistics Trend Radar, we have conducted ‘deep dives’ into multiple specific logistics trends and the findings are published in the form of individual trend reports. Recent reports include The Internet of Things, Robotics, Omni-channel and Fair & Responsible Logistics. These DHL trend reports contain not only an in-depth analysis of each trend but also showcase first application ideas.
The latest update now confirms some familiar trends while also providing valuable glimpses of upcoming trends that are likely to shape the future of logistics, from the adoption of self-learning systems to leveraging the possibilities of smart energy logistics.
We hope this publication will inspire and assist you once again in deriving innovative solutions for the world of logistics.
