Schwemmer wants to develop the BVL logistics community

BREMEN. In February, Martin Schwemmer took over from Christian Grotemeier as the managing director of Bundesvereinigung Logistik (BVL), where, alongside Christoph Meyer and Mike Holtkamp, he is one of the three management members and responsible for innovation, sales and IT. In this role, Schwemmer now wants to increasingly approach companies and people who do not have direct contact points with logistics but still depend on them. He wishes to better understand these “outsiders”, as he calls this target group, in order to get them more familiar with logistics. “This is also key to the long-term positioning of BVL,” said Schwemmer. Indeed, the community profits from network diversity. He reckons that there are many outsiders in information technology and data analysis. Schwemmer was most recently employed as Senior Consultant in charge of the market intelligence in the SCS working group at Fraunhofer Institute. He has also been a member on the ‘Logistikweisen’ committee since 2013.
