DHL represents 28 key trends that can have a significant impact on the development of the logistics industry in the next 5-10 years


DHL introduced the fourth issue of the "Logistics Trend Radar", first published in 2013. In the new issue, DHL presents 28 key trends that can have a significant impact on the development of the logistics industry in the next 5-10 years.
The preparation of the publication analyzes macro- and micro-trends, as well as data from partner organizations - research institutes, technology players, start-ups and clients. Most of the data is obtained directly from more than 10,000 logistics and technology experts who visit DHL innovation centers annually. Thus, the "Logistic Trends Radar" accumulates all the information received and is a strategic forecasting tool that reflects dynamic changes and the development of key trends in compared with previous periods, and also reveals new promising trends in the industry.
The new issue of the "Radar of Logistic Trends 2018/2019", prepared by the research department of DHL (DHL Trend Research), affirms that innovations will be of key importance for the development of the industry. Digitalization leads to serious changes in logistics.
"The" Logistic Trends Radar "is a" roadmap "in the field of innovation and helps to structure and activate leading projects and research in the industry. The new publication focuses on the digital revolution that is taking place in the industry and its impact on the four key factors that determine the future of logistics: customer orientation, environmental sustainability, technology and people, "said Senior Vice President and Global Director for Innovative Development DHL Matthias Hoytger.
Customer-centeredness will be a key element in meeting customer needs, increasingly seeking to get fast and convenient logistics. The growth in the number of goods purchased online, especially in the B2B segment, stimulates the need for omnichannel logistics solutions. The needs of customers also contribute to the growth of the number of shipments of those goods that require compliance with the terms and temperature regime of delivery. Thus, we are talking about the need for innovations in packaging, storage and delivery for such types of goods as, for example, food and medicines. The key area for innovation at the "last mile" will be the integration of logistics services into the "smart house" system (this direction stands out as a separate trend - "always in touch").
Environmental sustainability and rational use of resources will become an indispensable condition for the functioning of the logistics industry. State authorities, municipalities and service providers are increasingly committed to reducing CO2 emissions and waste. For example, DHL has set itself the goal of zeroing all harmful emissions to zero by 2050. One of the solutions for the transition to environmentally friendly logistics is the transfer of the logistics park and infrastructure to electricity as a source of energy. "Smart containerization" in transportation will also be important for the development of environmentally friendly formats for delivery to overcrowded cities.
The development of technologies in logistics will become a common phenomenon in the coming years and one of the ways to reduce costs while improving the price-performance ratio. This, in particular, concerns such key trends as the Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence. One of the trends that can accelerate the development of the industry is the spread of next generation wireless networks that can significantly increase the economic benefits and value from connecting the supply chain to the Internet. Another trend that is covered in the new edition is blockade technology, which is actively discussed in the information space and has significant prospects for development, but the implementation of which can be extremely problematic for the industry.
People will continue to be at the center of logistics, despite the trend of robotization and automation. At the same time, automation of technological processes and productions with the help of software will determine the structure of personnel in the field of logistics in the future. Modern technologies will help in the execution of routine, requiring significant physical effort tasks, which will allow people to concentrate on more important tasks related to the adoption of management decisions, analytics and innovations. Digital employment programs will help attract and retain talented millenials in logistics, as well as support existing, aging staff.
"No matter how hard we try to make accurate forecasts, we know from experience that some trends will not be realized. Innovations do not develop linearly - the success of individual trends will depend on the cultural environment and functionality, as well as on revolutionary technologies and business qualities. That's why we ourselves must actively participate in the development of these trends, "said Marcus Kühelhaus, vice president for innovation and trend studies at the DHL Center for Solutions and Innovations.
The report also highlights other innovative DHL projects, including the use of cargo electric bicycles for city logistics, the testing of "smart locks" that allow home delivery, and the use of artificial intelligence to predict world trade trends.
