Deep-seated innovation in the logistics industry
It is one of the logistics bottlenecks in the Netherlands: we have relatively little innovative knowledge and too few highly educated employees in the logistics industry. Above all, they are not equally distributed throughout the industry, but are chiefly employed by the larger shippers. The program plan SME Knowledge Dissemination develops countless initiatives to inspire and entice cooperation in innovation in logistics and supply chain management, reinforcing Dutch business.
The logistics industry in the Netherlands mainly comprises small companies. There is often too little time in these small companies for the calm consideration of future plans for the company and the industry because day-to-day business predominates. But it is essential, if the companies want to continue to play a role in the global market with competition from countries where, for example, labor is cheaper than in the Netherlands.
