"Post Luxembourg – from a postal company to an e-commerce logistics provider"

Abstract

Postal providers face dire market developments – volumes are decreasing between 5-10 % year over year. It is expected that only 15 – 20% of the original market is left over in 10 years’ time.
Yet postal law restrains postal providers: every household has to be served every day and high percentage of workforce is civil servant. Therefore new businesses have to be developed and POST Luxembourg has taken the challenge and created innovative services. 

The LCL Industry seminar series

The LCL Industry Seminar Series invites supply chain professionals to our campus to give a lecture on their expertise. It is an important recurrent event for our centre, in which new insights and ideas are shared and discussed within an open setting.

Some topics align closely with our current research directions, while others represent areas of interest to the supply chain community that are not formally being studied by our researchers. Diversity of topics is essential to meeting the purpose of the LCL Industry Seminar Series. Our goal is to provide a forum for interaction on themes related to supply chain among the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance, industry practitioners and students at and around the University of Luxembourg.

Even though the work and careers in academia and industry are quite different, it would be wrong to consider the fields of academic research and the business world as two separate silos. In fact, they are strongly interdependent. To be meaningful, the ultimate research goal, especially in a discipline like logistics and SCM, has to be the advancement and contribution to the growing success of businesses. This requires a good understanding of the practical challenges and thus a constant feedback loop between the two worlds. Moreover, solutions found by practitioners and researchers in one industry may spark the development of similar concepts and thus success stories in other industries as well.

The seminars are of particular interest to the professionals in the logistics and supply chain community. Students of our Master programme, faculty members and staff also attend the seminars.
