Why do we look into trends? Researching trends and deriving from this implications for business is no longer a niche task. DHL Trend Research is now an established and key source of inspiration, not only within DHL but also for our wider innovation community, partners and customers worldwide.
The first edition of the Logistics Trend Radar was published in 2013, representing the starting point of a new research series by DHL.
It provided an inspiring benchmark for strategy and innovation; it was warmly received by the global logistics community and has triggered a number of successful pilot solutions inside and outside DHL. In the course of last year, DHL Trend Research published various in-depth trend reports, each providing a ‘deep dive’ into a specific logistics trend.
The recent reports are on the trends of Big Data, Low Cost Sensor Technology and Augmented Reality.
These reports include an introduction to the trend topic, and an in-depth analysis of its impact on the logistics value chain, as well as a unique selection of use cases. As such, these reports are fueling numerous roundtable discussions among industry experts.
