4flow provides consulting, software and 4PL services for supply chains.
The research department, 4flow research, develops innovations in research projects with reknown research institutes and companies, and publishes studies on current issues in logistics. The focus of 4flow research is on the topics risk management, algorithms for optimization, traffic, and data science.
In the context of PREVIEW, 4flow research takes on the modelling of the impact on logistic flows in case that the water infrastructure for domestic shipping is compromised. For example, the modal shift towards rail and road transport is examined if the infrastructure or throughput capacity of canals is affected by meteorological effects or accidents.
