United Kingdom

Following the referendum held in 2016, the citizens of the united kingdom voted in favour of leaving the European union. Since then, brexit, which finally took place on 31 january 2020, has dominated virtually all economic and logistics activities in trade with the british isles. We examine the consequences – and possible solutions.

Belgium & Netherlands

When it is a question of the number of containers handled, then Rotterdam and Antwerp certainly have the edge over other European Ports. However, German Ports are not resting on their laurels. We will be taking a look across the borders in this issue but will also examine the strengths of our national ports.

United Arab Emirates

For our next edition, the journey from singapore will head westward for roughly 6,000 kilometres as the crow flies to arrive in the united arab Emirates – a federation of seven emirates – which belong to the global economies most abundant in oil.

We started LOGISTICS PILOT’s world logistics tour in southern Africa in early 2020. Now we are returning to the northern part of the continent, specifically Egypt, Algeria, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia. There we are shedding light on the many facets of this country beyond just tourism and oil and gas exports.

Japan

The bilateral relationship between Germany and Japan is characterised by close cooperation at the most varied levels. In addition, the free trade agreement between Japan and the EU, which came into force on 1 February 2019, has expanded market access in both directions. We take a look at current developments.

Austria

It seems to be human nature to enjoy observing one’s neighbour with great curiosity. This also applies to the relationship between “Ösis” and “Piefkes”. Although trade relations are close between them. In 2019, the bilateral trade volume between Germany and Austria reached just under 110 billion Euros. Reason enough to take a closer look at the bigger picture…

Latin America

For safari goers in Africa, the Big Five are of course the elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard. But here we put the Big Five of Latin America under the microscope. These are the five countries that last year were the region’s biggest buyers of German goods: Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Argentina and Columbia.

Scandinavia

The next stop on our logistics world tour is Scandinavia. This region in northern Europe is particularly successful at an international level because of its stable political and economic conditions and its rapid access to new technologies.
