"Best of Consulting" Award 2021

KPS and Infront receive award for new logistics platform


new startup modility contributes to resilient supply chains and climate-friendly transportation

Munich/Hamburg, 14 December 2021

The strategy consultancy Infront developed a new business model with the Hamburg Port & Logistics Authority that resulted in the launch of the corporate venture modility. modility is an open-supplier brokerage and booking platform for transportation by rail, ship and truck and provides more flexibility for carriers in combined transport, especially in today's environment. KPS AG was responsible for the technical development and realization of the new platform. The leading German business magazine WirtschaftsWoche recognises the “Best of Consulting” companies once a year and this year, KPS and Infront were awarded the special prize for “Supply Chain Resilience” for their integrated venture building approach.

Innovative concept developed and also implemented

Infront's strategy consultants provided methodological and conceptual support to modility's management team during the development and validation of the concept. The development team of KPS AG, Infront's parent company, was involved from the outset and was tasked with the technical implementation. The early involvement of the development team enabled the balancing of the technical as well as the IT-specific requirements for the later product. A modular cloud architecture was built that could be adapted very flexibly to the requirements of the complex market and enhanced with some in-house developments. At the same time, the product was built with the focus on the users’ perspective simplifying access to CT. This integrated approach laid the foundation for successful scaling in the market from day one. Three partners continue enhancing the corporate venture after the successful market launch.

"Many companies are faced with the challenge of evolving their business model and opening up new growth and service fields through digitization," is how Axel Marschall, Managing Partner at Infront Consulting, classifies the project. "As strategy consultants, we ensure already during the conceptual phase that scaling and feasibility of innovative approaches are considered. Together with our team at KPS, we can navigate the technology landscape and also offer the agile implementation of solutions. This enables us to master complex challenges faster, more efficiently and in a more differentiated way."
