  • Development of Key Performance Indicators including financial, performance-related, qualitative and environmental figures
  • Integration into an overarching KPI-system to control logistics processes
  • Transfer into rating systems, i.e. to balance energy consumption or GHG-emissions of stationary and mobile logistics processes
  • Benchmarking based on market analyses
