“…Federal minister for labour Olaf Scholz (SPD) and the Hessian SPD Secretary-General and member of the Bundestag Michael Roth personally convinced themselves of the trend-setting ecological concept of the extended active logistics solution center in Niederaula during their stay in the economic region east Hesse.
Since December the new international data centre has been in use and doubled the available work space for computers and store capacity. Thus, the full-service provider and operator of complex IT solutions for transport and logistics reacts to the noticably increased need for professional application service providing (ASP) and hosting services in the European logistics industry.
Main foci were the provision of additional scalable capacities, an increased availability of all services and the use of environmentally friendly and energy-saving techologies. Olaf Scholz was especially impressed by this forward-looking, ecological concept.
As timeframes for the provision of information in logistic chains are becoming increasingly narrow, a nearly 100% every-day availability of the involved IT systems throughout the year is required which can only be achieved by suitable redundancies in the critical areas.
With more than 250 employees, active logistics is one of the biggest full-service providers and operators of complex IT solutions for the transport and logistics industry in Europe. The established clientele includes more than 1,500 companies of every size – from the globally operating major enterprise to the nationally operating medium-sized forwarder.
