Consulting Transport and Networks

Consulting is our strength

As part of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, on a national and international level we support operating companies in achieving their goals faster. We assist our clients in all facets of logistics, from best practice concepts to a complete re-development of strategies. Our experienced team of experts helps to identify in particular development potential and to exploit this through extensive and individual consulting. Your desire to be ahead of the competition is always our focus.

Our performance:


Structural and location optimisation with DISMOD

DISMOD enables the efficient handling of strategic issues (e.g. location and structure optimisation) as well as operative questions (e.g. route planning). The demonstration of multi-level transport allows an overall optimisation from procurement and production along to the distribution of goods.

Redesigning Distribution and Supply Networks

Are your distribution logistics or your supply networks stuck in historically anachronistic structures? Is purely operating the business not leaving you enough time to consider strategic measures? With our support you can establish new visions for logistics structures.

Location planning

Are your logistic locations over or understaffed? Are you no longer capable to reach your customers in time? We optimise the number and position of your logistic locations and analyse their role in your entire logistics network.

Structural Planning of Network for Transport Service Providers

The optimal structure of line haul is essential for the performance of a transport network. There are diverse intermediate forms available between a direct transport network and a central hub network. We identify the optimal solution matching each individual customer requirement. We investigate the loading volume of hub locations over time which results from the schedule of line haul and handling capacities.

Identification of IT requirements

You require IT support for your logistics processes but do not know which products or things can be covered usefully and economically by IT? We analyse your needs by means of your processes and create performance specifications or verify the suitability of relevant products.

Transport Chain Security

Stability and protection against disasters, criminal or terrorist acts become increasingly important in transport chains, for example the ISPS code, compliance or the recognized economic operators. With our help you can meet these requirements economically and implement them into the process or transport chain.

Selection and implementation of Transport Management Systems (TMS)

Being logistically efficient in terms of economic growth often requires new transport strategies supported by appropriate software (TMS). We support you individually from selecting transport management systems through to the implementation of the software.

Design of Rail Transport

Are you interested in switching more traffic to the railways? Does the potential competition of rail transport interest you? We analyse your transport volumes, identify useful routes for rail transport and develop corresponding transport concepts including detailed costing.

Cost Management of the Supply Chain

Always be a step ahead of the competition with efficiency and effectiveness along the supply chain. Transport logistics demonstrate targeted rationalisation measures in order to increase your business performance – thinking beyond the company’s spectrum.

For us, consulting means achieving the maximum for our clients
