“Logistics is sexy. It's a cool industry to work in. The same goes
for innovation - it's also very sexy. You just have to find a way
to make it happen. Don't give up. It sometimes takes some time and
patience.” In this episode, we are joined by Dr. Kerstin Höfle,
Vice President R&D and Product Management at Körber Supply
Chain. Together with her team, Kerstin is responsible for the
automation portfolio, driving knowledge creation and implementing
new technologies and solution approaches at Körber Supply Chain.
Among other things, we dive into the topic of sustainability: What
does sustainability mean for the logistics industry? Where does it
come into play? Why are collaborations so important to successfully
implement this topic? And what is it about the special challenge of
the "last mile"? We also address the question of how attractive the
logistics industry is perceived to be today and what needs to be
done to bring the right talent on board. Curious to find out more?
