(businesspress24) - The global economic crisis is having an effect on almost all segments of the transport and logistics industry. Associations and research institutes around the globe are warning of a severe slowdown. In Germany, for example, the 'Logistics Indicator' (February survey) of the Bundesvereinigung Logistik (BVL) and the Deutsches Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung (DIW), shows that the mood in the industry is at a level unprecedented for the country. The indicator has fallen by over 30 percent year-on-year. "It looks as if in the current recession, we do not have the regional buffers that in the past have evened out the ups and downs in the economic cycle. The crisis is global and it is of historic dimensions," said Raimund Klinkner, BVL Chairman. Along with Germany´s Minister of Transport, Wolfgang Tiefensee, and the Chairman of Deutsche Bahn, Hartmut Mehdorn, Klinkner is also taking part in the panel discussion at the opening of transport logistic 2009 on 12 May, starting at 10 a.m. (Forum, Hall B3). Also on the panel is the Director-General of the European Commission´s Directorate-General Energy and Transport, Matthias Ruete, Panalpina World Transport Holding President & CEO, Monika Ribar, and Kühne + Nagel President, Klaus-Michael Kühne. The discussion will be chaired by Katja Dofel from n-tv.
