Germany has 80 large cities with more than 100,000 inhabitants – and four cities with more than a million inhabitants: almost 3.7 million people live in Berlin, almost two million live in Hamburg, a good 1.5 million in Munich and around 1.1 million in Cologne. Currently, around 77.4 percent of people in Germany live in cities. And the trend is still rising. So more and more citizens and companies are sharing increasingly scarce space and existing infrastructure. Logistics, especially the transport of goods and commodities, has a special function here: Germany’s third-largest economic sector supplies people and companies with everything they need.
365 days a year, around the clock, everywhere in the country.
Logistics is systemically relevant.
