Different speeds, different perspectives

With a total of 55 countries, Africa is characterised not only by its great cultural diversity, but also by a variety of different speeds – especially when it comes to economic development. This also applies to the five North African nations that we highlight in this issue: Egypt, Algeria, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia.

Significant growth potential despite current stagnation

The experts all agree: although the pandemic has been slowing down development in North Africa for over a year, Egypt, Algeria, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia will continue to expand their role as Germany‘s trading partners over the long term.

Specialist skills and the ability to mimprovise are helpful

If you‘re doing business in North Africa, remember the continent is a collection of individual countries, each with its own customs and culture. So it pays to do your homework.

AUSTRIA. They are our direct neighbours and they speak almost the same language as we do. But anyone who thinks that they can transfer German ways of thinking and behaving onto business visits to Austria on a one-to-one basis may be in for a nasty surprise.

From the North Sea to outer space

From the North Sea to outer space

It was on 13 April 1970 that NASA‘s Mission Control Centre was told, „Houston, we have a problem.“ The German Offshore Spaceport Alliance (GOSA), on the other hand, is aiming for everything to go smoothly for its latest project – launching small carrier rockets from a specially designed ship in the North Sea, starting in 2023.

IT companies have not necessarily focused on smaller seaports and inland ports in the past. Some processes can be optimised here through digitisation. The “Hafenmeister” (harbour master) cloud solution developed by IT specialists dbh and Akquinet shows how this works.

BALTIC STATES. The digitisation of bills of lading has been in the works for years. Thus far, however, the solutions have always had a catch. Two research projects, “eCONBiL” at the Bremerhaven University of Applied Sciences and “HAPTIK” at the University of Oldenburg may change all that now.

Anniversary for a port logistics specialist

Anniversary for a port logistics specialist

J. Müller is closely linked with Lower Saxony’s second largest port in Brake. But Bremen is another important location for the family-run company.
