The goal is to provide clients with a complete range of services - from e-business strategy, business processes optimisation and the implementation of Internet business models to a smoothly running logistics system. Together, Pixelpark and ZLU distinguish themselves as a business innovator for end-to-end-commerce. The Zentrum für Logistik und Unternehmensplanung (ZLU) is a rapidly-growing European leader in logistics, supply chain management and business process optimisation. Based in Berlin, ZLU currently employs a workforce of 120 at locations in Berlin, Sao Paulo (Brazil) and Boston (USA). In 1999, ZLU achieved a turnover of DM 26.9 million and provisional pre-tax results of DM 5.4 million. Pixelpark and ZLU have enjoyed a close business relationship for years. Today, both companies work intensively with international blue chip clients who are currently making significant investments in e-business. These clients include adidas-Salomon, BASF and Unilever. One of today's major barriers to growth in the new economy is the poor performance of fulfilment and logistics systems. Last year the Christmas business done by online retailers was characterised around the world by late and wrong deliveries as well as high levels of returns, all of which generated enormous costs. Against the backdrop of the logistics demands of global e-commerce solutions, the combined range of products and services provided by Pixelpark AG and ZLU will find an extremely attractive growth market. At the same time, ZLU will be able to offer a wider range of Internet capabilities to its customers in its traditional consulting services segment. The two business will combine their individual strengths with important synergy effects, which will be reflected in a single range of products and services for end-to-end-commerce.
