The increasing globalization of markets and progressive internationalization of business has led to a tremendous increase in complexity in the planning and management of logistics and supply chain networks. Cost-effective and agile intercontinental logistics networks, which, in addition to high service and delivery lead times, meet the requirements of dynamic procurement and sales markets, are a fundamental success factor for globally operating companies.

The planning and optimization of intercontinental logistics networks requires an end-to-end approach. Due to the complexity of the task, professional expertise, extensive project experience, and the use of proven methods and powerful tools are essential for project success. Furthermore, the continual change in requirements for global supply chains makes continuous planning and optimization of networks imperative.
