Hello, my name is Sven Ehlen

and I have been working for QTRADO Logistics since 2015 as a department manager for incoming and outgoing goods. After my Higher School Certificate 2009 and a study at the logistics campus of the TU Dortmund, I am currently completing a part-time study at the FOM in Essen with a focus on logistics controlling. Since summer 2018 I am Controlling Economist and since summer 2019 Controlling Business Economist.

My daily tasks include controlling, optimizing and monitoring the processes involved in incoming and outgoing goods. My goal is to implement all processes along the logistics value chain in such a way that all persons involved in the logistics process can produce efficiently and just-in-time.

This year, I wrote a final project paper on Tracking Technology for the Goods Receiving department. Among other things, the aim was to evaluate the incoming goods process using RFID technology and to present optimization potential. 

I am always anxious to optimize the processes in such a way that the result is lower costs for all sides. When checking goods, I place the highest priority on quality and speedy processing. The customer's goods are treated like property.

Special requirements for incoming and outgoing goods have to be considered in event logistics, industrial logistics and hazardous goods. Special in event logistics are e.g. pallets, which can weigh three tons. This requires special forklifts and two employees. In the case of goods that run under dangerous goods, batch control is a special feature.

Industrial customers often have to load and unload containers. During unloading, the goods are reloaded onto EU pallets and during loading, special rules and regulations regarding load securing must be observed. In 2018, I completed the load securing training course DIN VDI 2700a especially for this purpose.

The EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes) of the TOP 1000 companies is already stagnating or developing negatively across all federal states compared to Western Europe.

I think that overall B2B development has been slower than B2C development 20 years ago.

Nevertheless, more and more people and goods will be transported in the future, which will cause ever larger airports and mega cargo ships, for example, even if the increasing demand cannot be met by additional capacities alone.

In the age of digitalisation it is therefore of ever greater importance that data generated in the sense of "Silicon Economy" must be associated with the use of the data and traded. 

In my opinion, the solution will lie in better utilization and networking of companies, which must be monitored and controlled. With the generation and evaluation of correct data, bottlenecks can be predicted, processes accelerated and capacities planned.

Analog processes are being overtaken by artificial intelligence, which is becoming increasingly agile and faster.
