He learned the logistics basics through his activities at the logistics center of the German Armed Forces as well as at the forwarding companies BLG in Bremen and Hellmann in the USA. His knowledge was deepened by studies at the University of Applied Sciences in Flensburg as well as at the Technical University Dortmund and the Molde University College in Norway. Furthermore, he gained many insights into the world of research in the field of intralogistics machinery and equipment through his work at the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics.
He gained his first practical experience in plant engineering at Mitsubishi Hitachi in power plant construction with responsibility for several projects in India as well as at thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions in cement plant construction for a large project in Saudi Arabia and in chemical plant construction with project experience in Brunei and Hungary.
The major challenge is that the specific business of project logistics in plant construction with many associated interfaces - including between global suppliers, the individual authorities for transport permits and export control/customs issues, the packaging companies, the logistics service providers, the construction sites with assembly, and many other internal and external project participants - must be set up in an increasingly digital way. In particular, the strongly interface-driven area of logistics has to reinvent itself again and again in order to cope with and visualize the increasing volume of data and information in large plant construction projects. The additional challenge is that this must happen in an increasingly complex and dynamic global environment.
