Top 100 in European Transport and Logistics Services 2017/2018 (update on the 2015/2016 survey) will give you important key figures, analysis and reviews on the sectors and submarkets, as well as the top players in the logistics industry.

On the occasion of the 34th International Supply Chain Conference, the Fraunhofer Center for Applied Research on Supply Chain Services SCS will once again be looking at the developments in the European logistics markets. The Fraunhofer scientists will be picking up where the last TOP 100 in European Transport and Logistics left off two years ago.

The authors have chosen a new, compact format for the 2017 edition. The new study is just 100 pages long but supplies the information readers are really interested in, profiling the changes that have taken place in the logistics sector since 2015.

Martin Schwemmer and his team at SCS describe the trends and drivers in the European logistics sector succinctly and to the point. They also supply updated rankings for the nine key market segments that are traditionally examined in detail, such as bulk, contract logistics and air freight. And it goes without saying that the useful - and eagerly awaited - Top 100 list is once again an integral part of the study. In an Annex providing value added for users, the findings of the BVL Study on Trends and Strategies in Logistics and Supply Chain Management are included in the market analysis for the first time. As there have been few changes, the Industry Profiles, Company Profiles and Country Profiles are not included in the 2017 study.

The theme of the 34th International Supply Chain Conference - think different, act digital - also applies to the presentation of the TOP 100 of 2017/18. In line with user preferences, the publication is also being made available as an eBook. This means readers can also take the benchmarks and insights with them in their hand luggage without having to carry around a heavy hard copy printout. In this digital era, we view all these changes as part of the ongoing optimization of an established standard reference work for the logistics sector.
