German Transport Minister points importance of cargo transport
“We need to map the demand for freight transport with the least possible noise and emissions.” This was the statement of the German Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer, welcoming an Austrian delegation on the occasion of the “Logistics Hall of Fame” gala in Berlin on December 5th. The politician also drew attention to the importance of efficient connections in transalpine freight traffic.

In the past, logistics service providers came last in industrial decision-making; in the meantime, the topics of logistics and digitalisation are at the beginning of the design of process chains.
