Logistics BusinessBeumer “Effectively Shaping Digital Transformation”

What will the world of logistics look like in a couple of years? Will drones with stock orders fly through storehouses, will robots deliver ordered goods to the final customer and will truck drivers activate 3D printers in their trailers to manufacture the order during transport?

Logistics is one of the industries where the influence of the digital transformation process is particularly strong. This is because digital logistics offers considerable potential when it comes to costs and speed. The smart integration of digital technologies can especially make intralogistics more efficient and environmentally safe.

Beumer Group says it is taking an active part in shaping this change initiated by networking and digitalisation – one example is a new app which enables users to keep an eye on the current status of the machines connected to their system using their mobile devices. In addition to know-how in terms of digital technologies and processes, a major challenge is to plan and realise digital innovation together with the customer. On the one hand, potential brought by digital innovation is to be anticipated in the existing product portfolio. On the other hand, the focus of digital transformation is set on new business segments opening up for Beumer Group.

The customer is at the centre of all development of digital business models. Close and iterative co-ordination with and involvement of the customer is therefore a key prerequisite for digital transformation. For Beumer’s customers, this creates sustainable value for tomorrow’s logistics.
