On the Transmetrics blog we want to engage opinion leaders from the logistics industry into the discussion about important aspects and trends in the industry. Our first attempt at doing so is this interview with one of the industry champions – Dirk Reich, that I had a pleasure of conducting. Dirk Reich is an active board member of Panalpina, Inc. and LSG Group, a member of Advisory Board of Transmetrics, a former CEO of Cargolux Airlines and a former management board member of Kuehne + Nagel. He has already founded two successful companies: R+R International Aviation which offers strategic advice in the fields of e-commerce and logistics in China and Log-Hub which is a marketplace platform for sharing warehouse capacity.
In this interview, Dirk shared his views on the different challenges of various transport modes, the potential of predictive analytics to resolve inefficiencies in the industry, and his wisdom on many other interesting topics.
