“The transport and logistics industry is becoming a process supplier for the economy and society,” says Stefan Iskan, professor of logistics and business informatics at the Ludwigshafen University of Applied Sciences and founder of supplychainmachine.com. In an interview, he explains why medium-sized forwarding companies can therefore rely all the more on their own strengths.
