Logistics in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern – more than transportation from one place to another
More than 250 billion € were generated by a workforce of almost 3.0 million people within the logistics industry in Germany during the year of 2015. This makes the sector the third strongest branch after the automotive production and domestic trade [Fraunhofer SCS / Top 100 der Logistik 2016-2017], even though this part of industry is not individually mentioned within the National Accounts. Logistics nowadays go far beyond the pure transport services and warehousing by a continual improvement of the foci and objectives. Logistics includes the integral planning, control and realisation of all information and goods flows of a company. As a result it is a substantial element to achieve economic success. [Helmut Baumgarten / Logistik-Management – Strategien - Konzepte - Praxisbeispiele].
The success of logistics is primarily defined by the ability to provide
- the right product
- in the right condition
- at the right time
- in the right place
- the right amount
- to the right costs and
- with the right information.
There is no need to say that it is also important to consider the right packaging as No. 8.
Alike for the federal republic logistics industry with its different disciplines is very important for the business location of the federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (MV), serving as a logistics junction of the Baltic Sea Region and the Tans-European Transport Network. The transportation and logistics sector counts more than 40,000 employees in the year of 2014. This corresponds to a share of 7.4 % of the total employment in MV and is dominated by
- professions in the field of transportation and delivery (41 %)
- professions in the field of warehousing and transfer (40 %) as well as
- professions in the field of administration and commercials (19 %) [Fraunhofer SCS / Logistikbeschäftigung in Deutschland – Vermessung, Bedeutung und Struktur].
The range of capabilities and innovative capacity of the logistics service providers and logistics-related companies, measured by the status quo as well as the latest developments, has not tapped its full potential. With this tool providing information on logistics in MV you have got the chance to convince yourself of the regional expertise and to benefit from it.
