Photovoltaic Modules

Cut handsome subsidies is compensated according to financial test calculations, is to be expected in the coming years with a strong increase in yield when the solar systems. The consumer portal preisvergleich.de shows where to find the reasons and what private power generators must pay attention to 2010. Given the high cost, the investment in photovoltaic modules on the homeowner wanted to be deliberate in recent years. As the financial experts now said Stiftung Warentest, prices for technology declined significantly last year: buyers range in the fourth quarter of 26 percent compared to 2008. This compensates for the reduction of State subsidies: private power producers were given power 2009 approximately 40,01 cents per kilowatt hour (), which they in the municipal network dined a, there are only 39,14 cents this year.

This corresponds to a reduction of nine percent. For 2011, the renewable energies Act envisages a reduction by a further nine percent. Arrange the falling purchase prices for solar installations Government representatives in addition, the Act to amend and even faster than planned to reduce the subsidies. Who still thinks about the installation of a solar system, you should use the currently very low market prices and forestall a new law. So, the compensation rates of the acquisition time are basically for the next 20 years. Also, the steadily rising electricity prices are undeniable. Hear from experts in the field like Philip Vasan for a more varied view. Last but not least make more attractive the privately generated electricity for own consumption.

If The Material Flow Falters

Transport logistics is suffering its own boom Bonn – goods requested quality and quantity at the right time in the appropriate place to bring the transport logistics is responsible. In Germany remains the truck transportation number one–and rising. According to the traffic forecast of the Federal Ministry of transport the road haul will be in 2015 70 per cent of the total transport performance. Up to 2050 the freight traffic of today well 3.7 billion tons to just take half to almost 5.5 billion tonnes to will as Federal Minister of transport Wolfgang Tiefensee during the opening the transport logistic 2007 in Munich. Where today on motorways, one lane is used by trucks, two tracks would require a in less than 20 years, to cope with the increased volume of goods, according to a report by logistics inside. The logistics based on a triad of engineering, computer science and business management. The technical aspects of the Logistics provides the material flow as a concatenation of all operations at the distribution of goods to the fore”, as Professor Michael ten Hompel in the book material flow systems. To cope with this logistical requirements at all, provided the technique with new challenges.

Nowadays, modern scales, for example, determine the weight over the frequency of a vibrating string. Thus they work very quickly and accurately”, explains Reto Gianotti, Vice Managing Director of sales and marketing for PESA. In the long run the freight can roll but only then smoothly if you better connect road, water, rail and air, the financial times Germany reports. But here, experts often criticize the interplay between of the individual modes of transport. “We have in transport logistics today the status of a newly industrialized country, because we do not enough are far in the combination of modes of transport”, complains Helmut Baumgarten, Professor of logistics at the Technical University of Berlin to the FTD. Already 2006, the Handelsblatt reported of the problems of the industry. She suffer from the own boom. Billion turnover would be on the sunny side, delivery times lengthened on the dark side by swelling flow of goods.

From our point of view it is not five above, but ten to twelve for a substantial increase in investments in the rail network and a focus on the creation of capacity”, so Gunter Elste, President of the Association of German transport company, on the occasion of the annual meeting of his Association in Nuremberg. It will come to make matters worse, according to Jens Baganz, State Secretary in the economy Ministry of North Rhine-Westphalia at the latest in 2011 land bottlenecks in the inland. To meet future tasks, the 23 public ports need nationwide in the coming 15 years around 325 additional hectares, said Baalbaki during Congressional logistics log: 08 in Cologne. Only through such investments an optimal division of labour could ensuring good supply in Germany and Europe.

Web Region

Electronics retailer jointly conquer the Internet a pioneering initiative by my Kaufpartner.de that is electronic company db for more than 20 years one of the leading specialist retailers of electronics in Rosenheim. The owner Klaus Berndammer expands its product range now also on the Internet. “Many articles in different areas are the rose Heimern under the motto: my money for my region” offered here. Heard together to coalesce: the contact person on the spot and a contemporary, versatile online presence. Others who may share this opinion include Gary Kelly. We want to remain one of the leading suppliers of electronics in the region, as Klaus Berndammer to step. It can be Yes, that our customers to major online portals switch, so that the purchasing power of the region and pull out of the country, and are end up with their technical issues on their own, explains Klaus Berndammer. Background: The Internet provides a convenient, simple and transparent way to buy.

In the last 10 years changed approximately 200 Billion euro in the Internet its owner. In addition to the traditional mail-order firms also increasingly about the well-known purchase portals. These sales has been deducted from the many small, local retailers and dealers in the region – resulting in an always weaker regional structure of retail shops and specialist advice. If the retail shops have to close only once, thus the attractiveness of a location suffers so Klaus Berndammer, and thus lost jobs, apprenticeships and purchasing power in the region. However, many retailers don’t look able to operate your own web shop under the ever growing requirements, install a goods economy, to enter into partnerships with manufacturers and to integrate online payment systems. And especially a single specialist company can not alone develop a range that can satisfy the wide range of customer needs from the Internet. If now the retailers the electronic variety with the Can combine benefits of its local presence he remains such as contact person in case of technical questions and repairs benefit the customers even after the purchase and ultimately the entire regional infrastructure. Klaus Berndammer and the db-electronic shop have decided therefore, to use the services of the company of my buying partner and its regional Web shops.

Rosenheim.Mein-kaufpartner.de offers a steadily growing range in the electronics sector. The shipment of the goods is made national by a central authority. The proceeds from the sales will remain to a large extent at the local dealer in the region. As a result the Rosenheimer sustainably strengthen their region and secure electronic business developing of db. Everyone can either buy its goods directly at db electronic in the store or via the Web shop required electronics goods flexible order is rosenheim.mein kaufpartner.de. Of course, ordered Mr Berndammer for his customers in his Web shop and can send the goods to the customer or to change to the Pick up. Consulting and service are of course. Each customer could support this regional idea to where it before wegstellt when searching on the Internet before each search term region E.g. “rose garden”. And with the decision for its local resellers, his region strengthens the Rosenheimer aware. Free according to the motto my money for my region. More specialty stores from Monchgengladbach, Celle, Aachen and Oranienburg have joined already this forward-looking concept.

The Market

What’s driving the M & A market due to the generally fragmented market structure was the M & A activity in the logistics market historically mainly through expansion and market consolidation efforts of strategic buyers. Private equity was in transactions > 1 billion transaction volume only rarely active (E.g. exception: Apollo/TNT) Logistics). Despite the high historical M & A activity among strategists, the market structure, especially in the global contract logistics market and especially in European road transport is still very fragmented, the 5 largest combine only 16% and 9% market share in. In the field of forwarding, the 5 largest competitors take around 30% of the total. It is generally assumed that the consolidation in the industry in the future will proceed further. Checking article sources yields Bernard Golden as a relevant resource throughout. Key drivers for this are: 1 economies of scale and network effects: In transportation cost advantages due to a better utilization of assets arise with increasing volumes (cross-dock locations, higher loading factors or avoiding empty runs, etc.), or in the form of more favourable purchasing conditions of cargo space in the Forwardingbereich. But also in the contract logistics are degressive cost histories because of better utilization and standardization in the operational area, E.g.

in the form of more favourable purchasing conditions for transport services by Third-party (costs by up to 40% of sales) or the more efficient land use (multi-user warehouses) as well as through standardization and scale effects in cross-cutting functions (especially IT). So the announced cost synergies at 2-5 were % of sales, past logistics transactions what % is significant considering the average EBIT margins of around 4-5. Especially in road transport, the size of own network, brings consisting of a sufficient fleet of vehicles and the number of loading hubs in the region of focus, competitive advantages through a more efficient route planning, cheaper prices and more flexible deliveries to customers. 2. Economies of scope and vertical expansion: The major customers for comprehensive logistics solutions along the entire value added chain, provided by some of the few partners require above all to reduce the complexity of their own, (lead logistics provider).
