Supply chain in Germany: from a loan word in the 1990s to an essential business concept in the digital age

The term “supply chain” was first used in Germany as a loan word in the 1990s. In the modern age of globalized markets, it has become a “set phrase” used to describe the entire sequence of logistical and operational processes involved in moving goods from manufacturers to consumers.

Over the years, English terms such as “supply chain” and “supply chain management” have become more widespread in Germany and now form an integral part of German business vocabulary. In a business landscape marked by increasing digitalization and technological advances, these concepts continue to play an important role in the German economy to describe the way in which the flow of goods and information can be efficiently managed and optimized along the entire supply chain.

Supply chain development since the 1990s: from the analog to digital age

Globalization has made supply chains more complex and placed greater emphasis on risk management and resilience. At the same time, e-commerce and the demand for faster deliveries have increased the need for transparency and flexibility. Sustainability has also become a key challenge, as companies are increasingly shifting towards green practices and ethical supply chains. Digitalization has improved communication between supply chain partners, while cybersecurity has become a critical issue.

These changes highlight the need for supply chain experts to adapt and develop innovative solutions to operate in the complex and dynamic markets of today.

Let’s look at some of the fundamental changes in the supply chain that have an impact on the work of today’s supply chain experts.

  • Digitalization and automation
    Past: manual processes and limited IT systems.
    Present: use of advanced technologies such as IoT, AI and Big Data Analytics for automated, data-driven decisions.
  • Globalization of supply chains
    Past: local production and limited international trade relations.
    Present: effective management of international partners and suppliers required for complex, globally distributed supply chains.
  • E-commerce and consumer expectations
  • Past: mainly brick-and-mortar retail with long delivery times.
    Present: fast deliveries and high supply chain transparency needed to withstand pressure from e-commerce.
  • Sustainability and ethics
    Past: less emphasis on green practices and ethical standards.
    Present: supply chain adjustments needed to match growing awareness of environmental sustainability and social responsibility.
  • Risk management and resilience
    Past: less awareness of external risks such as natural disasters or geopolitical unrest.
    Present: need for comprehensive risk management and increased resilience to unforeseeable events.
  • Real-time visibility and customer needs
    Past: limited ability to track the movement of goods and low customer transparency.
    Present: real-time visibility along the entire supply chain and adjustment to specific customer needs.

The current focus on real-time visibility along the entire supply chain and the need to adapt quickly to customer requirements are some of the challenges that modern supply chain experts have to successfully address.

The general complexity of modern supply chains reflects the need for today’s specialists to have a broader range of knowledge and an agile mindset to operate successfully in a dynamic business environment.

KPIs and more: How Perzeptron GmbH is tackling supply chain challenges

If we see the supply chain as a company’s vital circulatory system, it soon becomes clear that a smooth flow is crucial for goods to reach their destination as quickly as possible. In a company, the coordination between different departments such as purchasing, production, transport and customer service can be as complex as the coordinated interaction of the various codependent organs in the human body.

The challenge is to identify optimization potential and align customer requirements with the necessary cost reductions and efficiency enhancements. Key performance indicators (KPIs) are one possible solution, but it often takes more than that. Only by monitoring uniform KPIs can you improve the alignment of your organization and make it more agile, which will ultimately result in greater customer satisfaction. These are principles that Perzeptron GmbH successfully follows when optimizing supply chains.
