Augmented Reality (AR) – extended reality – refers to computer-aided solutions for an extended perception of reality. It often involves supplementing images or videos with additional digital information or virtual objects by fading in or superimposing them. The “HoloLens 2” AR glasses from Microsoft – a latest-generation AR application – also follow this principle. The car manufacturer Audi in Ingolstadt, Bavaria, now uses these glasses for its logistics planning. This article is based on the unique List of the 200 largest logistics companies in Germany.

Linking AR software and AR glasses

An important task in planning is the optimal positioning of containers and operating equipment in logistics and production halls – the solution to a space problem. Until now, prototypes of the objects in question have been used in planning to test the effect of space under real conditions – a complex procedure, because the prototypes first had to be manufactured. Thanks to AR application, this will no longer be necessary in the future.

Audi is relying on linking its “LayAR” software (for “layout” and “augmented reality”) with the “HoloLens 2” glasses. The software can convert existing CAD data of objects such as shelves, containers or components into holograms and then projects these onto the glasses. The wearer of the glasses sees the objects in their original size in front of him or her in the place intended for them. The immediate visual impression allows an immediate assessment of whether the planned solution is adequate and where improvements are needed. Logistics planning becomes much more efficient and can start earlier.

The AR application can be used flexibly. Projections can be made in parallel on several glasses for planning teams, the virtual objects can be spatially changed. The opposite way – measuring surfaces and mapping halls in small format for workshops and conferences and converting them into CAD data – is also possible.

Testing, testing, testing – Corona rapid tests play a central role in pandemic control. The earlier an infection is detected, the better it can be counteracted. As long as there is no widespread vaccination, testing is an indispensable measure to stem the spread of the virus. The Moers-based medical technology company nal von minden produces them on a mass scale – now in double the number. This article is based on the unique List of the 100 largest medical technology companies in Germany.

Precise results without laboratory in minutes

The NADAL COVID-19 rapid test provides accurate results within minutes and costs only a fraction of the much more complex PCR tests. Exactly what is needed in the fight against a pandemic. nal van minden has already ramped up production to enormous quantities. In the last few months, 20 million tests p.m. have been produced. Since November, production has doubled to 40 million tests. And from January, production is to be doubled again to 80 million tests per month. The production capacities will be expanded accordingly in the short term.

The tests are intended for use by healthcare professionals only. They take swabs from the mouth or nasopharynx of the test persons and can detect an infection without laboratory examination. The tests are primarily passed on to healthcare professionals such as geriatric nurses or doctors. There is an acute need for testing in old people’s homes and nursing homes or in hospitals and doctors’ surgeries, because there are a particularly large number of persons at risk or these places are the first to be visited by possible infected persons.

nal von minden develops and produces products in the field of drug analysis and medical diagnostics. These include in particular laboratory tests and rapid tests in the fields of bacteriology, infectious diseases, gynaecology, cardiology, toxicology and urology. In addition to Moers, the company has sites in Göttingen, Cologne, Regensburg, The Hague and Ticehurst (GB). The company sells its products worldwide.

Many branches of industry are now complaining about a growing shortage of skilled workers. Training is one way of “replenishing” the required skilled workers virtually on one’s own initiative. This requires not only appropriate training places but also a good training infrastructure. The Paderborn company Lödige Maschinenbau is one of the few companies that still operate and expand their own training workshop. This article is based on the unique List of the 200 largest mechanical engineering companies in Germany.

Computer-controlled milling – now also in the training workshop

To this end, a new CNC universal milling machine was recently purchased for the training workshop to expand the machinery already available there. In the training workshop, trainees are to acquire practical skills and knowledge in peace and quiet and under expert guidance, independent of ongoing production processes. The computer-controlled milling machine is used for metalworking, an indispensable basic skill in mechanical engineering. Lödige in Paderborn currently employs 15 apprentices in the industrial-technical field. Whatever qualification is aimed for – basic metal training is compulsory for all training courses. This includes the use of classic tools such as file, saw, drill and conventional milling machines. The CNC universal milling machine now expands the training spectrum to include state-of-the-art technology.

Gebrüder Lödige Maschinenbau GmbH is a Paderborn-based company with a long tradition, which has been in existence since 1938. Lödige manufactures machines and plants for mixing, granulating, reacting and drying of materials which can be used in various industries. Customers can be found, for example, in the building materials industry, the pharmaceutical and chemical industries, the plastics industry, food producers or the metallurgy sector. The family-owned company employs around 500 people and generates an annual turnover of around 60 million euros.

Listenchampion Sector Reports (Part 4)
The logistics industry in Germany: turnover, statistics, background

Germany is the logistics world champion – this is due, among other things, to its central graphic location in Europe but also to its highly qualified logistics services. The logistics industry is the largest economic sector in Germany and is a strongly growing sector with a workforce of around 3 million. With about 25% of the turnover shares in the whole of Europe (in 2019) which Germany will have generated ~279 billion €, the German logistics market has a strong weight. Germany also holds a leading position internationally in infrastructure quality and logistics technology. However, the logistics sector is not only extremely relevant for Germany because of the high number of employees and turnover shares – highly efficient logistics structures enable the sector to be internationally competitive and enable foreign trade of German goods. The following sector report provides detailed insights into areas of activity and innovations in the logistics sector, the most important locations, key financial figures and insights into the gender ratio and efforts in the area of sustainability [1 & 2].

Components of our logistics market analysis

1) Fields of activity of the German logistics industry: What is produced?

The logistics industry is made up of six major market sectors, which include various market segments. The six market segments, listed here according to their turnover figures in 2016, are Contract Logistics, Land Transport, Location-based Logistics, International Forwarding, CEP (Courier Express Parcel) and Bulk – Bulk Logistics refers to bulk goods logistics including inland shipping [3]. In the following, the five largest market sectors will be presented in order to gain an insight into this broadly diversified industry.

Contract logistics

Logistik Branchenreport: Kontraktlogistik

Contract logistics is by far the largest market sector in the German logistics industry. Contract logistics refers to business transactions that are individually tailored to customer needs – these services usually go beyond basic logistics services. Due to this high level of complexity, service provider and customer often work together closely and on a long-term basis, which is a great advantage for the service provider. One of the largest german logistic companies, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics SE & Co. KG, iis also one of the leading contract logistics companies in the world. The GmbH & Co. KG offers customised logistics strategies along the entire supply chain. Contract logistics naturally draws on a wide range of different areas of the logistics industry, so Hellmann also offers a wide range of possible services: starting with incoming and outgoing goods, commissioning (compiling goods and merchandise according to given orders), value-added services and inventory management solutions.

Land transport

Logistik Branchenreport: LandverkehrThe second largest sector of the (German) logistics industry is land transport. Land transport, as the name suggests, refers to the transport of goods on land by road or rail. One of the largest Players in the logistic industry is without a doubt the Schenker Deutschland AG – dtransport logistics, especially in the field of land transport, is the speciality of the AG. The solutions offered include classic parcel shipments as well as System Freight or Direct Freight. With System Freight, national and international shipments of general cargo are offered, with Direct Freight full-load or part-load transports. In addition, Schenker Deutschland AG offers multimodal solutions, i.e. the linking of various modes of transport. The land transport sector also includes special cargo transport – especially for liquid and bulk goods – as well as crane services for heavy goods [3].

Location-based logistics

Logistik Branchenreport: Standortgebundene LogistikLocation-based logistics includes all so-called terminal operations: these include terminal services, warehousing, handling and other value-added logistics services related to terminals. A terminal is defined as an area or place used as a route for the handling of the transport process (loading and/or unloading of freight). A subgroup of site-bound logistics is site-bound (intra-) logistics. This is mainly focused on devices/products used within a warehouse system. This includes, for example, conveyor belt systems or industrial trucks (forklift trucks) as well as modern driverless transport systems. The Rhenus Logistics SE & Co. KG, one of the top 5 German logistics companies, offers a wide range of handling services in its terminals, such as scanning of goods, photo documentation, EDI interfaces that enable electronic and fully automatic data exchange, and truck weighing.

International Forwarding

Branchenreport Logistik: International ForwardingInternational Forwarding is mainly concerned with sea freight and air freight. The air freight sector in Germany is largely handled by the Lufthansa Cargo AG, among the top 3 German logistics companies. The AG offers a wide range of solutions based on the requirements of the goods – from standard freight, temperature-stable transport, dangerous and endangered goods, expired goods, live animals or emergency transport, everything is included. There is a similar range in aviation – under the DHL Global Forwarding division,  DHL International GmbH offers transports of liquids & flexitanks, transport of oversized goods, temperature-controlled shipments, customer-specific freight consolidation as well as full container load and less-than-container load.

CEP – Courier Express Package

Logistik Branchenreport: KEPCEP stands for Courier Express Parcel Service – the companies operating in this sector are therefore postal and logistics companies. CEP services often operate in the customer area and mainly transport unpalletised items. The Hermes Europe GmbH is one of the largest providers of courier express parcel services. In addition to transport logistics and global e-commerce, the company offers parcel delivery services – from classic parcel deliveries to bulky shipments such as furniture in 2-man handling as well as shipments in Europe.

Innovations, trends and growth drivers in the industry
Wachstumstreiber der deutschen Logistikbranche: Multishuttle Move

As a key industry, the logistics sector is affected by almost all social and economic developments. These include, on the one hand, the progressing globalisation, digitalisation and technology, but also developments such as the use of scarcer resources or increased customer requirements [6]. In the following, developments and innovations in 3 interrelated areas are presented: Global supply chain management, urban logistics and intralogistics.

Picture Source: Fraunhofer Institut für Materialfluss und Logistik

In global supply chain management, digitalisation, especially through big data applications and cloud platforms, opens up completely new opportunities. Although the new volumes of data present the logistics industry worldwide with technical challenges, the intensive use of these promises increased efficiency: for example, by means of seamless monitoring, cooling chains can be checked by temperature probes, shipment processes can be monitored permanently while transhipment and intermediate storage are in progress – this possibility of seamless monitoring offers strong potential for optimisation, both in processes and in resource utilisation or process quality. Serious disruptions can be identified and remedied, overloading or underloading can be detected and managed by redistribution. Both in the field of global supply chain management and in the field of urban logistics, the term “Industry 4.0”, as used in the report on the German mechanical engineering industry, plays a major role.

In urban logistics, for example, there is the implementation of e-mobility, new delivery technologies such as drones or autonomous vehicles. A good example of this is the Sennder GmbH, a logistics company based in Berlin. The “digital freight forwarder” enables optimal capacity utilisation and complete transparency of supply chains, among other things, by networking their vehicles, and provides drivers with mobile applications. Another possibility in the field of digitalisation would be route optimisation through artificial intelligence.

Industry/Logistics 4.0 also comes into its own in the field of intralogistics: autonomous industrial trucks, self-controlling containers, simplified inventory through the use of drones or the application of virtual or augmented reality holds great potential to change the logistics sector for the long term.

The term logistics 4.0 is also used by Fraunhofer Institut für Materialfluss und Logistik (Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics) which offer advice in this area. Work is also being done internally on solutions and technologies – for example, the Fraunhofer Institute has developed the “Multishuttle Move®” conceptualised and implemented. The Multishuttle Move can be used for classic storage and retrieval orders as well as for internal transport. The vehicles can move freely in the warehouse and thus all transports can be covered by an autonomous swarm of vehicles. The system is efficient: in one picking test run, 50 Multishuttle Movers handled up to 2,000 containers per hour. Exciting is also the RackRacer -the system “climbs” and moves up and down autonomously, even diagonally. The RackRacer thus enables a direct route to any storage location – this is revolutionary, as the technology means that no lift or additional rails are required. Another interesting system of intralogistics is the InventAIRy – autonomous flying robots equipped with sensors that can read barcodes and RFID chips and thus redesign the inventory.

Logistics Growth Drivers

2) Map of logistics companies: Where is the production?

Logistics Hubs in Germany: North Rhine-Westphalia and Bavaria

Logistics Industry ReportA look at the map of German logistics companies reveals a clear distribution: almost 17% (41 companies) of the 200 largest logistics companies in Germany are located in North Rhine-Westphalia and Bavaria. Together with Baden-Württemberg, the industrial locations unite almost 50% of the largest German logistics companies.

North Rhine-Westphalia is the leading German location – almost 16% of German exports come from NRW, and over 22% of German imports go to North Rhine-Westphalia. In 2015, the ~24,1000 logistics companies in the federal state generated almost 67 billion euros. The logistics sector is also indispensable as a labour market factor: around 364,000 people are employed in the core sector, with a further ~738,000 in the expanded logistics sector. The infrastructure is one of the best-connected: Two major airports, Düsseldorf Airport and Cologne Bonn Airport, provide the state with international connections to the world’s economic centres. It is hardly noticeable that the federal state has no access to coasts, as North Rhine-Westphalia is located on important European waterways, such as the Rhine. Road and rail links are also well connected and dense [7].

Bavaria as the second logistics hub in Germany generated about 18% of the total German turnover, which corresponds to 36 billion euros. As already noted in the industry reports of the mechanical engineering, medical technology and chemical sectors, many people in Bavaria work in the manufacturing industry – about 24% of the working population. The logistics sector employs over 400,000 people. Bavaria also has an outstanding infrastructure: with 24 ports, a 137,000 km long rail network and 3 international commercial airports, Bavaria is a large and important transhipment centre. The state also has high expectations for the future – Bavaria’s start-up culture is characteristic and also very active in the logistics sector [8].

Not surprisingly, the Hanseatic City of Hamburg is classified as the most important logistics city in Germany – in 2019, over 315,000 people worked (directly) in logistics. At the same time, Hamburg is considered to be highly dynamic and lies ahead of the Ruhr area or Stuttgart. Not just dynamic – smart too: according to the Smart City Index of 81 major German cities, Hamburg achieves top scores in all five subject areas (administration, IT & communications, energy & environment, mobility and society). Similar to Bavaria, Hamburg’s corporate culture is also characterised by its “start-up ecosystem” – 40% of the companies surveyed rate the ecosystem as good or very good [9].

3) Key financial figures of the logistics industry: What is the market volume?

Market volume

  • Marktvolumen (in Mrd. €)

Companies with turnover below €1 billion (2018)

Sales development of the top 5

  • Deutsche Post AG
  • Schenker Deutschland AG
  • Rhenus Logistics SE & Co. KG
  • Dachser SE
  • Kühne + Nagel (AG & Co.) KG

The figures are based on our database and can be found in the list of the top 200 logistics companies in Germany. The classification of the top 5 companies is based on this very database and the list of the Fraunhofer Arbeitsgruppe für Supply Chain Services in its annual study of the top 100 logistics companies.

Market volume and total turnover in the German logistics industry: 2015-2018

As already mentioned in the introduction, the logistics sector is a very important economic sector for Germany because of its employment effect and supply function. Germany is also one of the most important players in Europe – around 25% of the turnover generated is attributable to the German logistics industry [1]. The development of this position also looks promising: in 2016 the German logistics location came first in the World Bank study “Connecting to Compete 2016” – out of 160 countries. The Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure describes the logistics industry in Germany as a “very dynamic and above-average growing future market” [2]. This is also reflected in the sales development of the top 200 in Germany: especially from 2016-2017, an extremely large jump in growth of a full 9% can be seen, and based on the available data from our database, constant, high growth can be expected in other areas as well.

The graphs are based on our list of the top 200 logistics companies in Germany. Our database contains the total turnover of the companies, therefore there may be deviations from figures on turnover only in the logistics sector.

Competition analysis: What is the market structure in the logistics industry?

The logistics sector, with 50% of all top 200 companies with less than 500 employees, still has a large SME sector, but this is far less prominent than, for example, in the medical technology sector or in the mechanical engineering sector, where the SME sector (companies <250/<500 employees) is between 70% and 90%. This is also reflected in the distribution of sales: the top 5 companies, measured by sales figures for 2018 (Deutsche Post AG Schenker Deutschland AG Rhenus Logistics SE & Co. KG Dachser SE Kühne + Nagel (AG & Co.) KG) account for 52% of total German sales. The top 10 even account for 82% of all sales.

Development of the German market leaders in the logistics industry

Deutsche Post AG is part of the Deutsche Post DHL Group – the beginnings go back to 1490, DHL is founded in 1969 and finally taken over by the German post office in 2002. Today the Deutsche Post DHL Group is the world’s leading postal company. The Group has 12,600 locations worldwide with over 545,000 employees. With 5 main pillars the group is broadly positioned: Post & Parcel Germany – here Deutsche Post accounts for over 60% of the market volume. Express, where various special transports are also offered, Global Forwarding & Freight (i.e. air freight, sea freight and land transport) – in air freight, Deutsche Post AG is the leading provider, Supply Chain, where DHL is also the leading provider and DHL eCommerce Solutions. As can be easily seen from the graph, Deutsche Post AG has by far the highest turnover and at the same time a stable development.

The origins of the Schenker Deutschland AG is located in Vienna – Gottfried Schenker founded the company Schenker & Co. there in 1872. In 2002, Deutsche Bahn AG took over Stinnes AG and thus went from being two leading logistics companies to one. Today DB Schenker is the leading company for global logistics services. The AG has more than 2,100 locations worldwide and employs around 77,000 people. The logistics company is divided into two overarching divisions: Land, Air & Sea is the first, Contract Logistics the second. The company also offers other logistics services: Lead logistics, special transports, trade fair logistics, removals, sports and event logistics, art logistics are just a few of them. The diversification seems to be paying off: Similar to Deutsche Post AG, the company has a stable, steady growth.

The Rhenus Logistics SE & Co. KG was already founded in 1912 and is one of the top 3 German logistics companies. 33,000 employees work for the group in 750 locations. The company offers a wide variety of solutions ranging from multimodal transport, warehousing & customs clearance to innovative value-added services. These services focus on three different services: Custom supply chain, warehousing and transport. In the area of Custom Supply Chain, the portfolio also includes port, offshore and automotive logistics in addition to industry solutions. The Group takes an innovative approach to warehousing and offers innovations such as autonomous reach trucks, robot-supported storage and order-picking systems or optimisation of storage systems using Big Data. The transport division offers all areas of transportation: air, land and sea freight is provided by the company. Rhenus is also developing along with the logistics sector and is growing steadily.

The Dachser SE based in Kempten was founded as early as 1930. The company’s portfolio is broad, but can be divided into the following categories: on the one hand, services are offered in European logistics; air and sea freight are also separate pillars, as are rail services and food logistics. In addition, there are services and solutions within contract logistics, information logistics, quality management and, finally, assistance with customs and foreign trade compliance. Dachser’s DIY logistics offer is also particularly exciting – the availability of various services enables customers to put together an industry-specific and individual solution. Although Dacher SE’s growth is increasing in smaller steps, it is also very stable.

The Kühne + Nagel (AG & Co.) KG was founded in 1890 and has developed from a traditional forwarding agent to a global logistics partner with over 130 locations employing around 15,000 people. The company is a global leader in worldwide sea freight forwarding. In addition to sea freight, the AG & Co. KG also offers various other transport solutions, such as air freight, land transport or rail transport. The portfolio also includes supply chain services such as contract logistics or order management and industry solutions – including space travel. Kuehne + Nagel (AG & Co.) KG is also a logistics company characterised by stable and constant growth.

4) Gender balance and sustainability

Share of women on management boards

  • Frauenanteil (~4%]
  • Männeranteil (~96%)

Gender distribution in the logistics industry

According to statistics from the Federal Employment Agency 2015, the proportion of women in the logistics sector in 2007-2015 fluctuates between approximately 27%-30% [10]. If we look at the boards of the top 5 German logistics companies (Deutsche Post AG Schenker Deutschland AG Rhenus Logistics SE & Co. KG Dachser SE Kühne + Nagel (AG & Co.) KG), it is striking that out of 26 board members only one person is female – that is not even 4%. This is below the German average for the gender distribution on management boards, which was ~7% in 2018 [11].

The data for the graphics and the text are taken from our database and refer exclusively to the (managing) directors. If you would like to know more about the gender distribution in German industry, you will find more information in our Chemical Report, our Market Analysis Mechanical Engineering and our Medical Technology Market Analysis.

Sustainability in the German logistics industry:

According to a survey by the German Logistics Association (BVL), for the majority (93%) of people working in logistics, sustainability means “acting responsibly and with a view to the future, with an eye to the environment, the economy and society”. The majority of those questioned still say that sustainability in the logistics industry “(…) is of strategic importance and has an influence on the business model, organisation and processes” – so how does the logistics industry implement these efforts? The experts see the greatest potential for sustainable action in the vehicle fleet (34%) and in corporate culture and human resources management (33%) [12].

Logistik Industrie Deutschland: Unser BranchenreportSustainability in the vehicle fleet can be achieved through various approaches – optimised capacity utilisation to avoid unnecessary routes and vehicles, communication between vehicles to optimise route utilisation and avoid traffic jams, or the possibility to start directly with the vehicles. Recently, many large logistics/postal companies have made headlines with their own e-fleets – Amazon, for example, has ordered 100,000 e-vans from Auto-Start up Rivian, all of which are to be used by the end of 2021 [13]. In Germany, DHL sets the tone – with street scout vehicles, 12,000 e-bikes and e-trikes developed and produced in-house, the group owns the largest e-flot in Germany. The trend is also reflected in the increasing number of start-ups in this field.An interesting one is the Start-up Volta Trucks from England. The product is an all-electric city truck whose body is made from naturally renewable flax fibres and biodegradable resin composite soot. According to the start-up, the Volta Truck can reduce CO2 emissions by over 75%.

Logistik Industrie in Deutschland: Unser BranchenreportSustainability in corporate culture and human resources management is of course a broad field – from avoiding flight routes to training and paperless work. The Start-up essDOCs from Malta offers just that – a completely digitalised corporate culture. essDOCs has various solutions for this, especially CargoDOCs is relevant for the logistics industry. The CargoDOCS platform is web-based and secure and digitises all necessary steps in document work, starting with creation & approval up to exchange & global transfer of the original electronic documents. A big problem is of course, as in every industry, the high consumption of plastics, especially disposable plastics. Startups like Notpla give hope that this pollution problem can be solved in the near future. Notpla, again a startup from England, produces a plastic substitute from algae that is completely degradable and even edible in a very short time.

5) Statistics and facts in the logistics sector

  • The five largest market sectors of logistics are: Contract logistics, land transport, location-based logistics, international forwarding and CEP (Courier-Express-Parcel)
  • Logistics 4.0 is characterised by Big Data, e-mobility, autonomous and networked vehicles and automation

Computerfabrik becomes Technology Campus Augsburg

The “Technology Campus Augsburg” is to be built on the approximately 180,000 square meter site in the future. The property offers the best infrastructure for this – several halls with a total area of around 100,000 square meters, 22,000 square meters of office space, a computer center and 1,600 parking spaces. The site is conveniently located in the south of the city with access to the Augsburg B17 highway and opposite the WWK Arena. With the planned conversion into a technology park, the investor will have a virtually seamless connection to the previous use. The campus wants to offer innovative start-ups the opportunity for research, development and production “under one roof” and thus make Augsburg an innovation centre and a centre of attraction for future-oriented business models.

Walter Beteiligungen und Immobilien AG has been in existence since 1993, when it was founded by the building contractor Ignaz Walter as a family holding company for asset management. The company’s investment activities have two main focuses: Expansion and further development of its own real estate portfolio with project developments as an increasing focus and private equity investments – preferably in industrial, service and IT companies with a focus on digitalization. With the creation of the Technology Campus Augsburg, both orientations can be served.

The name BMW generally stands for premium class vehicles and sporty motorcycles, but Germany’s traditional car brand is less well known as a provider of logistics solutions. Yet automobile production requires sophisticated logistics. With the recent spin-off IDEALworks, BMW is now starting its own logistics business segment, which is to extend far beyond the automotive sector. This article is based on the unique List of the 200 largest logistics companies in Germany.

Industry-driven engineering technology for autonomous logistics

IDEALworks GmbH, a 100 percent subsidiary of BMW, has only been in existence for a few weeks, and the logistics activities of the car group have been in existence for much longer. With the spin-off, the company is now on the way to marketing its own logistics expertise. The name component “IDEAL” stands for “Industry Driven Engineering for Autonomous Logistics”. The company is based in Munich.

The market launch will take place with the Smart Transport Robot STR, an in-house development implemented in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute as early as 2015. The STR – now marketed as iw.hub – is a flat, mobile and autonomously moving robot that can transport goods weighing up to one tonne and deliver them to their destination. The robot is “intelligent” – it calculates the best route and navigates independently in space. Even in new environments, the autonomous transporter quickly finds its way around without external control.

BMW currently uses 130 STRs itself, but the robot can also provide valuable services in warehouse logistics and production sites. The cloud-based control platform “AnyFleet” is to form another supporting pillar of the business. This is an easy-to-use user interface for the control of autonomous transport vehicles from a wide range of manufacturers.

Participation in start-ups is a good opportunity for established industrial companies to invest in promising developments and business models without having to build up their own capacities. Buying” external know-how and expertise is often more efficient, easier and quicker than acquiring it “with onboard resources”. The participation of the Oldenburg chemical company BÜFA in the start-up InProSens should probably be seen against this background. This article is based on the unique List of the 600 largest chemical companies in Germany.

Innovative process sensors for substance and material analysis

InProSens – for “Innovative Process Sensors” – is a young company founded in 2018 from the University of Oldenburg. The company develops intelligent sensors for process analysis in the field of liquids and solids as well as for material analysis. The sensor systems offer a simple, fast and reliable way of quality assurance and quality control in industrial processes. They can be used in a wide range of applications – for example in the textile industry, in leather production or in the plastics industry. BÜFA is particularly interested in the InProSens near-infrared sensor NIRScreen for the identification of textile materials and for the analysis of textile soiling – a good addition to the BÜFA range of products in the Cleaning Systems business area.

BÜFA is a traditional Oldenburg company that was founded in 1883. Under the roof of the company holding BÜFA GmbH & Co. KG, three main subsidiaries – BÜFA Chemikalien GmbH & Co. KG, BÜFA Cleaning Systems GmbH & Co. KG and BÜFA Composite Systems GmbH & Co. KG – operate in the business areas Chemicals (chemicals), Cleaning (cleaning systems) and Composites (composite materials). The BÜFA Group employs over 500 people and achieves an annual turnover of more than 250 million euros. The Group is thus a typical representative of Germany’s medium-sized industrial companies and has been able to maintain its independence from large chemical corporations to this day.

In this new article series our Research Team introduces promising, young Startups based in Europe, which are already successful in the German market or will conquer it in near future. If you are interested in this series of articles, you can keep up to date on our LinkedIn Account.

 

In this article, we interviewed Keyless – a London based startup providing an innovative keyless authentication.

RG: Briefly describe what is your company doing?

 

Keyless: We’re building passwordless authentication and identity management solutions that leverage advancements in privacy-enhancing technology and multi-modal biometrics. We’ve currently launched a number of passwordless authentication solutions for workforce and consumer use-cases.

Our passwordless solutions are helping our clients enhance security and improve customer experiences, while also guaranteeing strong compliance with cross-jurisdictional data-privacy laws.

 

RG: Where is the benefit for the customers; what’s your USP in comparison to competitors?

 

Keyless: The main difference between Keyless and our competitors is how we store and process private authentication data. At Keyless, we leverage privacy-enhancing technology to securely processes encrypted pieces of authentication data on a distributed cloud infrastructure, rather than in a centralized location or on a user’s device. 

Our proprietary method for collecting, processing and storing authentication data significantly reduces the likelihood of security breaches, while also enabling more user-friendly authentication. For example, with Keyless a user has more control over their identity as their authentication data is not linked to their device. This means that they can manage their identity across multiple devices and enable secure, easy backup and recovery options. This is something that our competitors can’t offer their users.

 

RG: Is the German market relevant for you? If yes, how would you approach German market?

 

Keyless: The high instance of data breaches caused by compromised passwords and poor security practices has led to drastic legislative changes in Europe to how companies manage personal data and authenticate their customers. Thus, in Germany, as with the rest of Europe, there’s now an enormous demand for privacy-first solutions that offer strong security, without disrupting the user experience. The good news is that advancements in tech are allowing for fast, simple and secure passwordless authentication. Our approach will be educating clients here on the technology as well as the benefits of our passwordless solutions, which are optimized user-experience, enhanced privacy compliance and strong multi-factor security.

Residential real estate in large cities is considered a solid investment with easily calculable returns. Despite the introduction of a rent brake in many places – the urge to live in the (big) city continues to ensure high demand for rented apartments and a tendency towards rising rents. The Berlin real estate investor ACCENTRO Real Estate AG has practically doubled its current real estate portfolio with the acquisition of 2,800 units in eastern Germany. This article is based on the unique List of the 400 largest German real estate investors in Germany.

Purchase of apartments for the purpose of marketing

The acquired portfolio comprises 2,789 residential and 11 commercial units with a total area of 180,000 square meters. The properties are located in Berlin, Leipzig, Halle and Gera – prosperous East German cities. Berlin is a TOP 7 city and one of the real estate hotspots of the republic, Leipzig B-location. Halle and Gera are among the D locations. All of the apartments acquired by ACCENTRO have a good infrastructure environment and are conveniently connected to local and regional public transport. Good conditions for marketing.

ACCENTRO Real Estate has existed under this name since 2015 following the renaming of the former ESTAVIS AG. ESTAVIS was created in 2006 from two predecessor companies and went public in 2007. The history of ACCENTRO/ESTAVIS is characterised by numerous changes of ownership. The business model, which is based on residential privatisation, has remained the same. ACCENTRO acquires rental housing portfolios with the aim of converting them into condominiums. These are then sold to tenants, owner-occupiers and capital investors. Geographically, the investment focus is on Berlin and German metropolitan regions such as Hamburg, Rhine-Main, Rhine-Ruhr and Leipzig. The current investment fits in seamlessly here. Since 2018, ACCENTRO has also been involved in new residential construction projects in cooperation with project developers.

The seller is also (main) tenant

The site is a plot of land with an area of 45,000 square meters. It is located in the Talhaus industrial estate northwest of the actual Hockenheim housing estate and near the Hockenheim motorway junction. The building complex on the site consists of a production hall with four bays and an office section as the building head. The seller and tenant is Outokumpu Stainless Holding. Outokumpu is a Finnish stainless steel producer and metal processor with worldwide activities. The Hockenheim site also processes and refines stainless steel.

However, Outokumpu only leases back 75 percent of the space. New tenants are to be found for the remainder after modernization and upgraded fire protection. Aurelis Real Estate GmbH in Eschborn near Frankfurt is a nationwide real estate developer that prefers to invest in commercial real estate: Industrial parks, logistics properties, warehouses or real estate that can be used commercially through conversion. We are looking for properties with a minimum area of 5,000 square metres, as well as derelict or under-used areas of 25,000 square metres or more. Aurelis was founded in 2001 by Deutsche Bahn to outsource its unneeded real estate holdings and has since experienced several changes of ownership.

Cologne belongs to the so-called TOP 7 cities in Germany. These are large metropolises with dynamic real estate markets. Good office properties are particularly in demand in the cathedral city. As an administrative and service centre, university town, financial centre and the headquarters of numerous institutions, office space is urgently needed here. The recent acquisition of an office property in Cologne by the Berlin-based private equity investor COMMODUS Real Estate should also be seen against this background.

Entry investment in the Cologne real estate market

This is a first. Up to now COMMODUS has not yet been engaged in Cologne. The property with the address “Stolberger Straße 372” is located in the Cologne district Ehrenfeld northwest of the city centre. The building, which was constructed in 1998, has around 9,000 square metres of rental space, 80 percent of which is currently let. The remaining 20 percent are still looking for tenants. COMMODUS wants to realize a new utilization concept here. It envisages so-called flexible-space offices – flexibly designed office space for innovative young companies with rapidly changing space requirements. Rentable office sizes of around 300 square metres to approx. 1,900 square metres are planned.

COMMODUS is an investment company based in Berlin and Munich with integrated real estate management. Within this framework, it offers a platform for semi-institutional and institutional investors who wish to make real estate investments via special funds. The focus is on Core+/ Value Add commercial properties – preferably office properties – in German TOP 7 cities. The Cologne investment fits this profile perfectly. For COMMODUS the purchase is the entry into the Cologne market, which will soon be followed by further acquisitions. The acquisition was made for the fund “Commodus Deutschland Fund II SCSp, RAIF” – a special fund structure under Luxembourg law.

Banks look for new profitable business areas in times of low interest rates. Only little can be earned with traditional lending and deposit business. Real estate investments offer an interesting expansion of the traditional business portfolio. Rental income instead of interest income – this could be the strategic approach. Volksbank Braunschweig Wolfsburg eG – in short: Volksbank BraWo – is taking this path. This article is based on the unique List of the 400 largest German real estate investors in Germany.

Rental income instead of interest income – strategy of Volksbank BraWo

The cooperative bank recently acquired two shopping centres in the city centre of Pinneberg from a group of investors. Pinneberg is located in southern Schleswig-Holstein and has de facto developed into a western suburb of Hamburg. The two properties – the Rathauspassage Pinneberg and the so-called inner courtyard development – form a coherent building ensemble. It comprises a total area of 20,640 square metres, of which the Rathauspassage accounts for the largest part.

Both objects were created in the first years after the turn of the millennium. The architecture is accordingly modern. The construction was carried out at that time as part of the complete redesign of the town hall area and is still of urban significance for Pinneberg. The two properties are let to a total of 26 tenants. These include the city of Pinneberg, the local tax office, a savings bank and various retail outlets.

Volksbank BraWo was created in 2005 from the merger of the previously independent Volksbanken Braunschweig and Wolfsburg. With a balance sheet total of over four billion euros, it is one of the larger co-operative credit institutions in Germany. The Rathauspassage is already the bank’s sixth major shopping centre or specialty store investment. Just a few days ago, the bank bought another large shopping property, the CityPalais in Duisburg, the seventh in its portfolio.

Investments in specialist stores and specialist retail centres are still considered attractive despite the problems of the stationary retail trade. This is because typical tenants such as DIY stores, drugstores and food discounters are less threatened by online trading than other retail sectors. Long-term letting guarantees stable returns. Deutsche Konsum REIT-AG has also said this to itself and has now acquired five specialist stores in different German locations.

Three local supply centres and two food discounters

Three of the commitments are local supply centers – the Feldberg Center in Neu-Anspach (Hesse) with 5,733 square meters of space, a center in Mölln (Schleswig-Holstein) with 5,126 square meters and another in Freital (Saxony) with 1,700 square meters. All three local supply centers are fully let with remaining lease terms of at least three years. The tenants include food discounters, beverage retailers, drugstore chains, a fitness chain and a pharmacy. Practice and office space as well as apartments are also let in the Möllner property. The other two investments concern two food discounters in Blankenstein (Thuringia) and Wrestedt (Lower Saxony) with a total area of 2,372 square meters.

The total investment volume amounts to 14 million euros, with annual rental income reaching around 1.25 million euros. This results in an investment return of 9 percent. Deutsche Konsum REIT is one of the few REITs in Germany. A REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) is a listed real estate investment company that distributes the majority of its profits and is tax-privileged. The investment focus of Deutsche Konsum REITs is on retail properties with tenants who offer goods for everyday use (retail business). The acquired portfolio is a good match. The overall portfolio currently comprises 170 properties with 950,000 square meters of floor space and a balance sheet value of 850 million euros.

In this article, we interviewed e-bate – a Leicester based startup providing an intelligent rebate management.

RG: Briefly describe: what is your company doing

e-bate: e-bate is an Intelligence rebate management SaaS platform that digitises the end to end process allowing teams across the supply chain to make great decisions improving rebate revenue.

You want your rebates to be managed accurately, whether you are a supplier offering rebates to your buyers or a buyer ensuring that you receive the correct rebates for your purchases.

We have married client-centric processes with an intelligent rebate management solution with strategic advice from rebate professionals. Our team have implemented into some of the world’s leading brands.

We configure our platform to you. It’s your processes and performance goals that determine how e-bate is configured. It’s not a one model fits all. We set you up to get the best possible outcomes.

 

RG: Where is the benefit for the customers; whats your USP in comparison to competitors?

e-bate: The benefits to our customers of implementing e-bate are:

  • Real time calculation engine – Batch processing and manual solutions can create a long delay. But the e-bate calculation engine processes your data against your agreements in real time, giving you immediate results. e-bate processes and updates your data instantly – so as soon as it’s received the newest version is in play – giving you immediate results and removing the need for manual intervention.
  • Exceptional reporting – With a flexible dashboard and reporting module, e-bate gives you full control to publish reports your way. With user specific dashboards which can be configured to meet the needs of each role, e.g. Finance, Commercial and Rebate Analyst. Widgets and dashboards are generated in the Enhanced Reporting Module, giving you real time visibility of the information you need. e-bate’s Enhanced Reporting Module allows you to create flexible reports quickly and easily
  • Configurable and flexible – Customisation to suit your business is perceived to be an expensive addition to implementing the rebate management solution. But we see it as essential – no longer are you stuck with someone else’s process or terminology. Now you can use your own. Imagine a future where you don’t have to go back to the platform developer for expensive changes. Configured to suit your business needs, this cuts out the need for bespoke customisation, which reduces the cost of ownership. From terminology to workflows, we have designed e-bate to be flexible and configurable – for each individual client.
  • Easy to use interface – We have designed the user interface with you in mind: intuitive and able to deliver on the features that ensure you spend less time managing spreadsheets and more time analysing data to make better decisions and drive customer behaviour. Older rebate solutions and spreadsheets are not user friendly, but our solution simplifies the whole process.
  • Eliminate spreadsheets – Spreadsheet data is static and only provides a snapshot in time, whilst the manipulation of data is complex and prone to human error. e-bate automates the process in an auditable and controlled way, providing you with the ability to be proactive.
  • Portal for Suppliers and Customers – Our Customer Portals enable you to share sensitive, key information with your Suppliers or Buyers. Opening up e-bate across your supply chain encourages best practices and proactive behaviours. Keeping everyone on the same page reduces queries and extensive validation.

Our USP in comparison to our competitors is that they do Rebate Management whereas e-bate Specialises in Intelligent Rebate Management, using our T3 model – Tools, Techniques, Team

  • Tools – e-bate platform

PATRIZIA AG is one of the largest real estate investment companies in the country with a managed real estate volume of more than 12 billion euros. Founded in 1984, the Augsburg-based company can look back on almost four decades of successful business activity.

Investments are made through funds launched by PATRIZIA – mostly special funds and investment vehicles for institutional investors, and funds for private investors are also offered through the subsidiary PATRIZIA Grundinvest.

But as with any positive development, there are also downsides. One negative aspect of the brave new world of information is information overload.

An intelligent solution for efficient knowledge acquisition

The British-Israeli start-up CRUX, founded in 2018, wants to master this crux with a digital solution for knowledge qualification. It wants to systematically support users in acquiring knowledge through information and thus make tedious “googling” for further required information superfluous. Knowledge acquisition becomes much more efficient. CRUX’s approach is to use intelligent algorithms to calculate the information content of used digital sources while they are still being read in order to automatically provide suitable supplementary information sources to complete the knowledge. This is done via widgets or APIs. The Crux solution is a typical external SaaS offering. SaaS stands for Software as a Service. The target group is primarily companies with knowledge-based business models such as digital media providers, consulting firms and financial service providers.

The start-up company has now secured EUR 1.1 million in a Series A financing round to further develop its business model. The round is led by the Munich-based VC company WENVEST Capital. WENVEST specializes in investments in digital start-ups with SaaS solutions. Geographically, the focus is on Germany, and in the wider area also on Europe. WENVEST Capital founder Bernd Wendeln brings with him around 20 years of VC expertise. Typical WENVEST Capital engagements target Series A financings in the range of half a million to one million Euros.

The E.ON Group in Essen is one of the largest energy suppliers in the country. In 2018/2019 the company took over its competitor RWE’s subsidiary innogy as part of a comprehensive swap transaction. This in turn was merged with the new parent company E.ON this year and now no longer exists as a separate company. For E.ON, this restructuring was the occasion to reorganize its venture capital activities as well. The “Future Energy Ventures” fund is the result. This article is based on the unique List of the 200 most important venture capital investors in Germany.

Two becomes one

The fund, which was launched at the beginning of October 2020, combines venture capital know-how and expertise from E.ON and innogy. The VC teams from both areas form the staff of the new fund and the existing investments will also be continued under the umbrella of Future Energy Ventures. Of course, further commitments are to be added. Future Energy Ventures wants to invest in digital and digitally supported technologies and business models that can have a lasting impact on the energy landscape of the future – in line with the fund’s name element “Future Energy”. The focus is on participation in Series A financing rounds, but is not limited to this.

Future Energy Ventures is intended to be more than a pure investor – the fund also wants to support its start-ups with mentoring, networking and the establishment of contacts. The currently managed portfolio already has a volume of around EUR 250 million and over five dozen commitments, including financing for well-known start-ups such as Bidgely, Holobuilder, Intertrust, Thermondo and T-Rex. In addition to its headquarters in Essen, Future Energy Ventures is also represented in Silicon Valley and Israel – two digital start-up hotspots.

Lupines inspire plant lovers because of their splendid flowers, but at the same time they are considered poisonous. But not every lupin species produces the poisonous substance lupinin. The lupin seed can even be a valuable food ingredient. It looks like a legume, but does not become mealy when cooked, but retains its firm consistency. The start-up company Polupin GmbH in Grimmen in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania uses the favourable nutritional properties of the lupin seed. This article is based on the unique List of the 200 most important venture capital investors in Germany.

Fresh money from bio-economy funds with EIB background

Founded in 2010 as a spin-off of the Freising-based Fraunhofer Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging (IVV), the company specializes in extracting protein from sweet lupine as lupine protein isolate – as a raw material for vegan food production. The process is unique and patented. The protein obtained is used to produce vegan alternatives to dairy products – milk, yoghurt, ice cream and cream cheese. These are marketed under the “Made with LUVE” brand. Prolupin has now been able to secure funds from the newly established European Circular Bioeconomy Funds (ECBF) to further expand its business. Prolupin is a so-called late stage start-up, which has already successfully entered the market and is looking to grow further.

The ECBF is the first venture fund focusing exclusively on the bio-economy. The fund, which is based in the Bad Godesberg district of Bonn, began its work on 1 October 2020. It is mainly supported by the European Investment Bank (EIB) and is a building block in the “Green Deal” of the EU Commission. In the final stage, the ECBF is to comprise 250 million euros. The Prolupin commitment and a further financing with an added volume of 82 million euros are the first two projects of the fund

Cologne-Ehrenfeld is a district northwest of the centre of Cologne, which still belongs to the inner city areas and is characterised by a colourful mix of residential and commercial buildings. There are also still many gaps between buildings and wasteland. The former workers’ and industrial quarter presents itself today in a diverse way with a lively cultural scene and is one of the hippest residential areas in Cologne. The Düsseldorf real estate investor Alfons & Alfreda has now acquired a vacant site here to realise an office campus. Nothing is known about the purchase price. This article is based on the unique List of the 400 largest German real estate investors in Germany.

Neighbourhood development with office use as a focal point

The 15,800 square metre site is located on Widdersdorfer Strasse – a central traffic axis with mixed development that adjoins the Ehrenfeld district centre to the west. The site was previously owned by the Hess Group, a Cologne-based family business that has been in existence for almost a hundred years and trades in car and engine parts and other technical components. A district development is planned on the site – mainly with office space, supplemented by areas for gastronomy, retail, leisure and fitness. The project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2025.

The Düsseldorf-based Alfons & Alfreda Management GmbH is still a young company and was only founded in 2018. The focus as a project developer is on opportunistic investments in German metropolitan regions, preferably in good micro-locations with the corresponding local supply infrastructure. Developed and undeveloped plots of land of 3,000 square metres and more are acquired for new development and redevelopment. Alfons & Alfreda is also involved as a portfolio buyer – both in residential and commercial projects. Another important project is the development of an office campus at the new Berlin airport BER on a 35,000 square meter site.

Germany’s department store sector has been in a state of upheaval for some time now. Online trading is a burden on the business model. With the merger of Karstadt and Kaufhof, only one nationwide operating department store group now remains. Houses have recently been closed at numerous previous locations in order to avoid double presence in the future. This automatically raises the question of how to use the properties no longer needed. This article is based on the unique List of the 400 largest German real estate investors in Germany.

Future use not yet decided

The sale of a commercial property in Mannheim’s N 7 square to the real estate investor Diringer & Scheidel should be seen in precisely this context. Until recently, the building was used as a Kaufhof store and is now being abandoned as part of the restructuring of the Group. The property is located in a central inner-city location in Mannheim. The transaction is planed to take place in the next few weeks, there is a pre-emptive right to purchase the property. The parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

The excellent location of the property was an important motive for Diringer & Scheidel to buy. The future use of the property has not yet been decided. A use for retail purposes is conceivable, but only by tenants with crisis-proof business models and by no means exclusively, according to the buyer. The building structure also opens up possibilities for additional and other uses. The Diringer & Scheidel group of companies is a traditional Mannheim-based company and has been in existence since 1921. Originally founded as a construction company, Diringer & Scheidel has been increasingly active as a project developer and investor in large properties since the 1980s. The Mannheim purchase is a perfect match.

These sectors are forward thinking and committed to delivering digital transformation within their processes in order to create the best services and value for customers. As such, Humley’s Conversational Assistant, could enable German organisations to not only deliver significant efficiencies through streamlining the handling of inbound communications and associated tasks, but also improved user experiences through providing on demand access to support and information through a 24/7, multi-channel, multi-language Assistant.
