The airport is becoming a shopper’s paradise

The retail market is suffering due to the strong competition with online shopping. Many people order items online from home instead of going downtown. This development is forcing retailers to change their strategies. Retailers open their shops where customers spend their time for example, airports and train stations. The idea is that people spend their ‘waiting time’ exploring the shops. Global Management Consultancy, Arthur D. Little’s latest research found that many hub airports already make more than 50 % of their revenues with this kind of business. The trends have been set in Asia and the US and Europe’s train stations and airports have recently discovered the new markets. Nevertheless, the Arthur D. Little expects predict that the cooperation between shopping and public infrastructure is going to have a successful future.

Wind power overtakes nuclear power

Wind energy is one of the world’s booming industries and globally the power capacity of wind power stations has overtaken the power capacity of nuclear power stations. However, wind parks only produce electricity when there is enough wind and a look at the share price makes it clear that all in all, there is still nearly four times the amount of nuclear power being produced. Nevertheless there is little doubt that wind energy will be a future method to generate electricity, whereas nuclear power is losing its status in many countries. For example, Europe and the USA are both investing a lot to get away from nuclear power technology which is perceived as risky. Although China and other emerging markets are still building new nuclear power stations, they are simultaneously focusing on building and developing renewable technologies as well. The author points out that wind engines are among the cheapest methods of energy production. German producers and suppliers will benefit a lot from the increasing market.

Experts advise hospitals making a loss should cooperate with retailers

German hospitals are suffering from financial hardships. A recent report points out that one in five hospitals are close to bankruptcy. Management Consultancy experts at Arthur D. Little advise hospitals to start cooperating with retailers in order to solve the situation. Hospitals should consider renting out space to retailers so that patients, guests and residents can do their shopping there. The rent paid to the hospitals would be a welcome extra revenue for hospitals short on money. The concept is already in use at airports and train stations. Big international hub airports already make more than 50 % of their revenue outside the core business. Even hospitals abroad such as USA and Sweden have managed to implement a successful retailer concept by offering shops, restaurants and even spas to customers.

Mit dem Best-Landed-Cost-Ansatz die kostengünstigste Alternative finden

Die Zeiten der „low hanging fruits“ sind nach Jahren der Professionalisierung des Einkaufs vorbei. Es gilt heute, die gesamte Bandbreite des Einkaufsinstrumentariums global anzuwenden, anstatt lokale Einkaufskonditionen lediglich um wenige Prozentpunkte zu optimieren. Jüngste Studien von Arthur D. Little belegen hierbei großen Aufholbedarf. Wie sich suboptimale Lieferantenentscheidungen vermeiden lassen, zeigt der Gastbeitrag von Herrn Daniel Seitz in der Fachzeitschrift ‚Einkäufer im Markt‘.
