The logistics world has been changing rapidly over the last couple of years and continues to do so. New players are emerging, new technologies are being introduced, and even new business models are evolving. 

What hasn’t changed though is the industry’s struggle to fully unlock their customers’ willingness to pay and achieve better margins. While costs are being squeezed to the very last cent, commercial processes and above all pricing are often neglected. 

The European Logistics Forum will make this issue its main focus and discuss in detail various methodologies and tools that can help logistics companies grow more profitably. Topics covered will include:

  • Dynamic pricing and yield management
  • Margin-optimized price setting
  • Measures to increase prices
  • Digital logistics channels and online pricing

This is a fantastic opportunity to meet accomplished leaders as well as commercial executives from the logistics industry, expand your network, and participate in discussions on best practices. Simon-Kucher’s own keynote speaker, CEO Dr. Georg Tacke, will share his view on pricing in the logistics world. Guest speakers will also talk about their experience with pricing excellence, such as Stefan Paul (Exec. Vice President of Road Logistics at Kühne + Nagel) and Daniel Golik (VP of Pricing & Products, Services and Surcharges at DHL Express). Mark the event in your calendar now so you don’t miss it. You will receive a formal invitation with a detailed agenda and a registration link within the next few weeks.
