STEFAN HOHM
Corporate Director Corporate Solutions, Research & Development, Dachser

City Distribution is more than parcels to consumers

Have you ever wondered why the same truck, driven by the same truck driver, with the same destination, is stuck at the same place in the same que, day after day?
Due to the constant change in infrastructure within our cities and the megatrend urbanization, it is essential for logistics service providers to monitor distribution routes and implement new and sustainable technologies into their processes.

The majority of the discussions on this matter focuses on B2C parcel deliveries. However, research shows that the challenges with distribution into the city center also highly affect B2B deliveries and groupage service providers. Stefan Hohm expands this subject and introduces us to how we may be able to solve this matter in the future.

Stefan Hohm is as Corporate Director Corporate Solutions, Research & Development responsible for the development of Dachser Corporate Solutions on a global level and for bundling the research & development activities of Dachser. Stefan studied Business Administration majoring in Logistics. In 2015 he completed an Executive Master in Business Administration (MBA) at the IMD Business School in Lausanne. His professional roots lie within Dachser, where he spent time in several branches as General Manager and was also responsible for the development of the Warehouse Management System MIKADO at the Head Office in Kempten.

CLAUS HOLM
Nordic Sales Director IM, Samsung

The future of tracking technologies

The Internet of Things (IoT) has become a love-hate buzzword across all industries. Buzzword or not, the IoT technology is going to change the way we see tracking today. Using IoT based solutions and equipping physical objects such as vehicles and warehouses with data collecting sensors, tracking and documentation can become much easier and profitable in the future.

This is what Claus Holm from Samsung believes, and during his presentation he will share the initial results from different pilot projects, and his thoughts on how new and innovative IoT technology will help us monitor all transports and deliveries in the future.

Claus Holm is Nordic Sales Director IM at Samsung and holds great experience in implementing innovative technology into our everyday life and thus raising the bar for logistics excellence.
