As a result of increasing globalisation, the routes on which goods are being transported have expanded geographically but also shortened in time. Modern man enjoys getting fruit from South America, coffee from Africa and electronics from Asia. Due to a constantly increasing optimisation of existing logistics processes, he is accustomed to deliveries within Germany being delivered overnight and from North America within two days. Until now, optimisation in logistics has focused primarily on increasing speed and guaranteed delivery.
Neuartige Ansätze in der Logistik fokussieren bei anspruchsvollen Gütern, wie z.B. Lebensmitteln, auf die Güte der Lieferungen. Für den Versender und Empfänger reicht es dabei nicht mehr aus, dass die Ware garantiert in einem festgelegten Zeitfenster geliefert wird. Vielmehr soll der Zustand der Ware und eine mögliche Schädigung zeitnah erkannt und wenn möglich schon während des Transportes signalisiert werden können.
Innovative approaches in logistics focus on the quality of deliveries for challenging goods, such as food products. For the sender and receiver, it is no longer sufficient that the goods are guaranteed to be delivered within a specified period of time. Rather, the condition of the goods and any possible damage should be detected in real time and, if possible, reported during transportation.
