‘Business Meets Business’ debate: the dynamics of logistics
The future of the logistics sector in the Dutch province of Brabant looks bright, but companies that fail to think far enough ahead are at risk of missing the boat. To safeguard its long-term future in today’s climate, a logistics business must be willing and able to innovate and collaborate. Besides that, one of the biggest challenges for the sector in the years ahead will be sustainability. Another challenge will be the shortage of development sites and skilled employees, both of which will restrict growth. In the recent ‘Business Meets Business’ debate, chair Bert Damen probed the ten participants, who included Groenewout’s Mari van Kuijk, about their experiences and solutions.
