LOGISTICS TREND RADAR
- Delivering insight today. Creating value tomorrow!
“Unlike other trend studies, the Logistics Trend Radar doesn’t just offer a snapshot of trends at a certain point in time. It is basically a living tool that will be updated regularly with data from reports and research. With the Trend Radar, we aim to stimulate collaborative discussion throughout our business divisions and networks, resulting in innovative ideas that we can develop together”, explains Bill Meahl, Chief Commercial Officer DHL.
The very first edition of the Logistics Trend Radar was created by DHL’s Solutions & Innovation team in cooperation with Detecon Consulting. It is based on social, business and technology trends and evaluates their potential impact on logistics. For future versions, DHL plans to expand the accessible knowledge pool with input from customers and partners.
The Trend Radar is also displayed in the new Hands on Lab, which is an integral part of DHL’s Innovation Center in Germany, where logistics innovations become tangible. Visitors are guided through an “innovation funnel” that demonstrates how the company develops innovations and how projects are set up within DHL and with external partners. There is also the chance to experience the customer innovation journey, a structured approach of engagement to generate new ideas and work on business value.
