What will the world of logistics look like in a couple of years? Will drones with stock orders fly through storehouses, will robots deliver ordered goods to the final customer and will truck drivers activate 3D printers in their trailers to manufacture the order during transport?

Logistics is one of the industries where the influence of the digital transformation process is particularly strong. This is because digital logistics offers considerable potential when it comes to costs and speed. The smart integration of digital technologies can especially make intralogistics more efficient and environmentally safe.

BEUMER Group takes an active part in shaping this change initiated by networking and digitalization. In addition to know-how in terms of digital technologies and processes, a major challenge is to plan and realize digital innovation together with the customer. On the
one hand, potential brought by digital innovation is to be anticipated in the existing product portfolio. On the other hand, the focus of digital transformation is set on new business segments opening up for BEUMER Group.

The customer is at the centre of all development of digital business models. Close and iterative co-ordination with and involvement of the customer is therefore a key prerequisite for digital transformation. For BEUMER Group’s customers, this creates sustainable value for tomorrow’s logistics.

BEUMER Group is an international leader in the manufacture of intralogistics systems for conveying, loading, palletizing, packaging, sortation, and distribution. With 4,000 employees worldwide, BEUMER Group has annual sales of about 750 million.
