Return on Investment – ROI
Achieve the maximum while spending the minimum. We’ll show you a way to score a ROI of 1:3.
Modern Logistics sets the focus on the entire supply chain. Through our mindset we accomplish cost prevention, cost reduction and process optimization.
Reduction of transportation costs
In contrast to forwarding agents or ship brokers, we do not sell you space on trucks, square meters or our own transport assets. We are deliberately refraining from this: in the sense of an optimal competition for the best logistics solution.

Number of various logistic contracts
You might think the figures shown are too high, but they are a result of an analysis in a turnkey project.
Often there is a lack of transparency in regards to involved logistics parties due to historical grown structures. Forwarding agencies, carrier, crane operator, wrapper – just to name a few. Today’s logistics market is widely based on brokerage. This is a reason why the actual figure of involved parties is often unknown.
Transparency of overall logistics costs
companies with non-transparent logistic costs
One out of three companies do not know its (complete) logistic costs. This makes it clear that logistics is only sparsely used to achieve new company goals. Important potentials remain unused.

4 PL Logistics
- What is 4 PL?
- Hybrid solutions – The new option after „make“ or „buy“
- LSA Logistics Management - Neither consultant nor freight forwarder
1 PL is characterized by company owned fleet followed by the 2 PL – an independent haulier or ship owner. Active steering and bundling of goods for better utilization of the own assets or network (3 PL or Lead Logistics Provider). In addition, there are service providers who work with the market’s lack of transparency.
The fourth and latest generation (4 PL) pursues a different business model. The goal is not to utilize the own assets, selling space on trucks or storage, but the independent planning and routing of the logistics chain along the entire business process.
4 PL deliberately avoids own technical resources and networks, but neutrally uses existing assets or networks. As a result, 4 PL creates transparent information and organizes the best possible mesh of links in the logistics chain.
A lack of own logistics resources creates nervousness in the valuable core business. Outsourcing can provide expertise, but can also create anxiety in interpersonal relations. Safe “make” or “buy” decisions are tough ones. If situations change on a daily basis, isolated applications dominate and heterogeneous logistics structures persist.
Our hybrid logistics management focuses on the challenging the balance between outsourcing and in-house logistics. The advantages of „make“ or „buy“ are used. Those situations between project requirements and contract logistics which cannot be described are our focus.
In this sense we initiate, transparent and in the best interest of our clients, competition for the most attractive solution.
While the extent of consultancy is described in the contract, the freight forwarder is governed by §§ 453 to 466 Handelsgesetzbuch (HGB).
“The freight forwarder is obliged to provide the consignment of a good.”
The customer is not exempted from the execution. Similarly, the consultant recommends a solution. They don’t have to carry out the solution automatically.
The LSA manages and organizes the logistics in companies over the entire business process. Like a lawyer, we take the interests of our clients for the best possible solution in the legal framework. The consignment has to be dispatched successfully – so far so good, but the transport itself is just an intermediate step. The right information at the right time is essential.
