Megatrends and prospects: Sustainability City

"As for the future, your task is not to foresee it but to enable it." (Antoine de Saint-Exupéry)

Actively shaping the future is a systematic process at Schenker Deutschland AG. We systematically pick up on megatrends and prospects, evaluate them and translate them into concrete projects. Megatrends are complex, comprehensive and sometimes even contradictory. To ensure that we keep track of them and act with our goal in mind, the R&D agenda is based on our Sustainability City, a networked diagram of the logistically relevant consequences of megatrends.

The Sustainability City maps out the 14 most important megatrends as a transportation network. Each of the stations are stops or transfers between megatrends dedicated to a particular subject. Large as well as smaller hubs reflect areas for action for specific projects to make the future possible.
