The countdown is on!

On April 10th, 2025, Germany's third-largest economic sector once again showed that logistics is more than sprinters parked in the second row, problems with the parcel delivery company or supply bottlenecks for toilet paper.

For the 18th time, companies, organisations and institutes opened their doors to the public - on site and online - and demonstrated how versatile and efficient logistics is.

Free company tours, business games, lectures, webinars and much more gave interested parties the opportunity to experience logistics live.

From October 2024, companies can post events and interested parties can register for them.

"I think it`s great every year on Supply Chain Day over a hundred companies open their doors to school classes and interested citizens and show what’s behind one of the largest economic sectors in Germany. In This way, we learn about the complex processes that influence our everyday lives and move our country in the truest sense of the world.“

Our Patron of Supply Chain Day 2024 – Oliver Luksic, Parliamentary State Secretary to the Federal Minister of Digital Affairs and Transport

"The economic sector of logistics offers enormous professional diversity and very good opportunities for advancement. The tasks are much more exciting than they appear at first glance - it's good that on Supply Chain Day there is the opportunity to get first-hand information from the companies on site!"

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Thomas Wimmer, Chairman of the BVL Board (Bundesvereinigung Logistik)

 "The shortage of skilled workers is real - and will become even more severe by 2033, when more than 7 million people are expected to retire in Germany. We can only meet this challenge as a community of solidarity, and not every company for itself. In our view, Supply Chain Day sends out an important signal. It reminds us of what logistics also does every day, for our lives and our prosperity."

Frauke Heistermann, Spokeswoman of the initiative „Die Wirtschaftsmacher“

Supply Chain Day

Most people associate logistics with the transport of goods. But logistics is so much more than transporting things from A to B!

Among other things, the Bundesvereinigung Logistik (BVL) launched Supply Chain Day in 2008 to bring the diversity of logistics closer to the public.

Since then, companies, organisations and institutes have opened their doors to the public on Supply Chain Day - both on site and online - and for one day - in keeping with the motto "Experience logistics live" - provide insights into the exciting tasks and diverse job profiles of logistics.

With 151 participating companies, organisations and institutes from 8 countries, 129 events and around 3,450 participants, Supply Chain Day 2024 was a complete success.

Initiators are the communication agencies mainblick and teamtosse with the support of the Bundesvereinigung Logistik (BVL), the initiative "Die Wirtschaftsmacher" and the Deutscher Städte- und Gemeindebund (DStGB).
