On behalf of a company for economic development SCI Verkehr GmbH is investigating the possibilities for bringing contracted logistics projects relating to air freight to the site. For the initial review of the situation SCI Verkehr carried out interviews with the leading providers of air freight services in Germany. From this review we will develop a strategy for the next steps for the company for economic development.

Strength/weakness analysis of logistics in Baden-Württemberg

Customer: Baden-Württemberg Department of Trade and Industry

The logistics sector is one of the leading sectors in Germany. For a state like Baden-Württemberg, the strengths of which lie in a number of technological and industrial sectors such as micro-system technology, mechanical engineering and the automobile sector, logistics are of particular relevance as a trans-sectional function. At the same time, the past focus on purely technological issues has led to logistics not being perceived as a core segment. The Baden-Württemberg Department of Trade and Industry has therefore assigned SCI Verkehr compile a strength/weakness analysis regarding logistics in Baden-Württemberg. The objective of the study is to highlight the importance of the industry and identify obstacles for Baden-Württemberg in order to provide the industrial companies situated there today with the optimum conditions for their day-to-day (logistical) work. As a result, SCI Verkehr is going to formulate a logistics strategy for Baden-Württemberg and identify potential flagship projects.

In cooperation with project partners, SCI Verkehr revised an already existing waterway and port concept. We concretised and adjusted the transport targets and principles of the state government, created a new chapter entitled ?Transport and Logistics?, added the chapter ?Environmental/Climate Protection? and derived possible contracts or manageable political concepts for action for the state government from the possible options for action. The new concept was aligned with the port industry and federal government?s master plan for transport and logistics. The aim of the concept was to clarify the importance of inland water transportation and ports for Germany.

Analysis of logistics sites focusing particularly on rail connections

Customer: Company for economic development

Sidings and direct railway connections have played virtually no role at all when marketing sites over the past years. With the rising problems for road freight transport (traffic jams, transport capacity bottlenecks), logistical concepts making use of the railways are becoming ever more interesting for the freight shipping industry. On behalf of a transregional company for economic development SCI Verkehr is examining three former industrial sites with regard to their logistical suitability, taking into particular consideration the tracks existing at the sites. The result of the study is a marketing concept focusing specifically on those companies with a tendency to transport goods by rail.

Customer: Company for economic development

SCI Verkehr investigated a former industrial site?s suitability as a logistics site. In order to support the political and planning discussion concerning this site, SCI Verkehr compiled settlement scenarios for the various industries in which ideal types of logistics centres were modelled for the respective industries. The parameters of the models were the size of the plant, lorry transport, car transport and the number of workplaces. In addition, on the basis of the scenarios, constraints in the surrounding transport network were identified and a proposal made for optimising access to the site.

Cluster management NRW ?logistics state? (LogistikLand NRW)

Customer: LOG-IT Club e.V.

In March 2007 the state government of North Rhine-Westphalia decided upon a new ?cluster strategy? within the scope of its economic policy. Within this strategy, logistics have been defined as a key "distinguishing" cluster. LOG-IT Club e.V., a logistics network in the state of NRW, took over on 1st February 2008 the management of the NRW logistics cluster under the title "NRW logistics state" (Logistikland NRW). SCI Verkehr was commissioned by LOG-IT Club e.V. together with the association Verband Verkehrswirtschaft und Logistik NRW e.V. to provide professional support for this project. The core of the project is to create a logistics community in NRW, support the regions in promoting the area and handling important logistical issues of the future such as human resources and logistical spaces.

Logistical site expertise for an administrative district

Customer: Economic development agency

For the purpose of establishing expertise as a basis for site marketing in the logistics sector, data and facts on the site were collected and processed and competitive analyses were carried out with other regions. In addition to information already known, SCI Verkehr processed the average transport prices for six selected example routes and verified these in discussions with local logistics companies. The further processing of statistical indicators such as the labour market/skilled personnel, structure of the distribution of commercial industry in the administrative district, existing networks and procurement markets for industry and trade ultimately led to a derivation of the logistical marketing strategy.

Cooperative logistics planning in the southern metropolitan area of Hamburg

Customer: Association of north German administrative districts

In the administrative districts of the southern metropolitan area of Hamburg, there is significant potential for the settlement of logistics-related businesses because of the proximity to the sea ports of Hamburg and Bremerhaven. The administrative districts therefore wanted to develop recommendations for the development of business locations for the logistics sector in the southern metropolitan area of Hamburg together in the model project KOPLAS. Together with planning company Planquadrat Dortmund, SCI Verkehr developed recommendations for the regional authorities and construction planning authorities for the development of business locations for the logistics sector which are compatible with the geographical area. Starting from a demand analysis, SCI Verkehr identified the general and specific requirements of the logistics sector as well as regional planning on the locations and potential fields of conflict. From this, concrete recommendations were derived and usable guidelines compiled for settlements of this type. In this way, the districts concerned and the state of Lower Saxony as the provider of funding received a generally applicable instrument for future location planning in the logistics sector.
