Cartonplast Group invests in three service centre locations

Increasing Global Demand for Efficient and Sustainable Reusable Transport Packaging Solutions

Dietzenbach, Germany, 12 April 2019 – Cartonplast Group (CPL) is investing in three service centre locations: Dietzenbach (Headquarters), Germany – Essen, Germany – Figueira da Foz, Portugal.

After three years of construction at its headquarters in Dietzenbach, Germany, a milestone in the Company“s 34-year history was achieved with the construction of an ultra-modern service centre. The Reusable-Transport-Packaging-Specialist uses innovative cleaning technologies for plastic layer pads (PLPs) in the new service centre – which are used in 20 countries to transport glass, cans and PET containers to filling plants in the beverage, food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. The approx. 3,000 square metre hall expands the existing work area for sorting, cleaning and reprocessing of the reusable PLPs it provides on a rental basis. CPL is setting new service level standards as a leading Transport-Packaging-Outsourcing-Expert for the container manufacturing industry, with a special focus on the responsible use of natural resources. The company operates 17 service centres worldwide, 15 of which are in Europe.

„In the former service centre at our headquarters in Dietzenbach, Germany, we had reached the service capacity limits for the container manufacturing industry“, said CEO Serkan Koray, who manages CPL together with Michael Heikenfeld and Thomas Krausch. „Our new state-of-the-art service centre for the reprocessing of plastic layer pads is a symbol of our continuous growth and a further milestone in the company’s history.“

At the CPL site in Essen, Germany, the focus was on the refurbishment of the external warehouse. Following a fire in August 2018, operations were relocated to other CPL locations. CPL made successful use of its European network and ensured the smooth supply of customers despite the short-term limited loss of capacity. Other regional CPL service centres in Germany and the Netherlands supplied the affected customers with PLPs for the transportation of containers. The service operation for processing PLPs at Essen has resumed and all customers serviced from this location are optimally looked after.

CPL Portugal (Poolplaca) service centre size 4,100 m2 – Expansion +2,100 m²
Growth story: The history of „Poolplaca Portuguesa de Plásticos“ began in 2001 in the Portuguese city of Figueira da Foz. After three years of working with 10 workers and one PLP cleaning line, the company decided to install a second wash line in response to the increasing market demand. This fast expansion was a result of environmental substitution of cardboard with PLP, combined with strong growth in production capacity within the Iberian container glass manufacturing sector.

In 2006 and 2011, due to the constant increase in customer demand, combined with increasing levels of quality requirements in the market, there was a programme of wash machine capacity increases, with each new machine bringing higher technology giving improved quality levels. The next stage for the company was the preparation process for ISO 9001: 2008 certification and later in 2014, ISO 22000 certification, which Poolplaca is now both certified for. „Today, after 18 years of continuous growth, it was necessary to physically expand our facilities, install a new Washing Line to further increase our wash capacity, whilst installing new technology, to continue improving our production process and increase the quality level of CPL’s Pool service“, says Jose Maria Carrasco, CEO of CPL Iberia.

As part of this continuous improvement trend, the new wash line that CPL Portugal (Poolplaca) has invested in, is the most sophisticated in-line technology in the CPL Group that includes automatic X-Ray inspection and rejection systems, which sits within the newly purpose-built production area to complete a 4.100 m2 service centre at Figueira da Foz.

In addition to the PLPs product range, CPL’s portfolio also includes reusable top frames and plastic pallets – especially for the glass container industry. The service spectrum ranges from integrated transport solutions to individual customer-specific services. Please find the complete service and product range of CPL in our explanation video under this link.

Copernicus präsentiert den European State of the Climate

Ein umfassender Überblick über das Klima im Jahr 2018

Heute stellt der Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) neueste Ergebnisse über das Jahr 2018 in seinem jährlich erscheinenden European State of the Climate vor. C3S wird im Auftrag der Europäischen Union vom Europäischen Zentrum für mittelfristige Wettervorhersage (EZMW) implementiert. Mit zahlreichen relevanten Klimaindikatoren wird ein Überblick über das Klima des letzten Jahres im Kontext des Klimawandels gegeben.

Trend bestätigt: Erderwärmung schreitet weiter voran

Der European State of the Climate zeigt, dass 2018 eines der drei wärmsten Jahre Europas seit Beginn der Wetteraufzeichnungen war. Alle Jahreszeiten waren überdurchschnittlich warm, der Sommer 2018 sogar der Wärmste aller Zeiten mit 1,2 °C über dem Durchschnitt.

Somit bestätigt auch das Jahr 2018 den Wärmetrend der letzten 40 Jahre. In Nord- und Zentraleuropa herrschte von Ende Frühling bis in den Herbst hinein ungewöhnlich warmes Wetter, mit den höchsten gemessenen Temperaturen seit mindestens 1950.

Lang andauernde Wetterereignisse in Europa

Nord- und Zentraleuropa erlebte zudem eine langanhaltende Dürre. Saisonaler Niederschlag war sowohl im Frühling, Sommer und Herbst bis zu 80 % unter Normalwert. Die Dürrephase erstreckte sich über die gesamte Vegetations- und Erntezeit und führte zu landwirtschaftlichen Verlusten, Einschränkungen in der Wasserversorgung und niedrigen Wasserständen in Flüssen. Im Gegensatz dazu erlebten einige Gebiete in Südeuropa den bisher feuchtesten Frühling und Sommer ihrer Geschichte.

Mehrere Kältephasen trafen Europa zu Beginn des Jahres 2018, die nahezu den gesamten Kontinent befielen. Februar und März waren die beiden einzigen Monate, in denen Temperaturen europaweit unter dem Durchschnitt lagen. Dabei gab es heftigen Schneefall in großen Teilen Europas, inklusive Großbritannien.

Die Anzahl extremer Niederschläge lag im letzten Jahr in Europa deutlich unter dem Durchschnitt, dennoch sind verschiedene spezifische Wettereignisse hervorzuheben: Eines davon war Ex-Hurricane Leslie, der im Oktober auf die Iberische Halbinsel traf und als stärkster Sturm in der Region seit 1842 in die Geschichte einging. Er führte zu kräftigem Niederschlag und Überschwemmungen in Nordspanien und Südwestfrankreich. Durch zeitweise heftige Regenfälle gab es zudem Anfang des Jahres 2018 in Paris schlimme Überschwemmungen.

Auswirkungen der warmen und trockenen Klimabedingungen

Mit den Temperaturen stiegen auch die Sonnenstunden. Teile von Zentral- und Nordeuropa hatten bis zu 40 % mehr Sonnenstunden als gewöhnlich. Deutschland erlebte 2018 sein sonnigstes Jahr aller Zeiten. In Südeuropa hingegen gab es durchschnittlich weniger Sonnenstunden.

Die Auswirkungen auf Gletscher waren enorm. Die europäischen Alpen erlitten den größten Umfangverlust. Zudem stiegen die Wassertemperaturen europäischer Seen auf die höchsten Werte seit Beginn der Aufzeichnungen 1995. Die Waldbrandgefahrenstufe war in vielen Teilen Nordeuropas überdurchschnittlich hoch, vor allem in Skandinavien und um die Nordsee. Die Waldbrände in Schweden wurden als die Schwerwiegendsten der Neuzeit deklariert. Als Folge der Waldbrände herrschten in Nordeuropa im Jahresdurchschnitt die höchsten Emissionswerte seit mindestens 2003.

Seit Beging der satellitengestützten Überwachung des Meereises trat im Winter 2018 zum ersten Mal eine größere offene Wasserfläche, genannt Polynya, im Norden Grönlands auf. Insgesamt bestätigt sich der Trend einer unterdurchschnittlich großen Meereisfläche in der europäischen Arktis. Damit zusammenhängend herrschten dort meist überdurchschnittlich hohe Temperaturen in nahezu allen Monaten des Jahres 2018. Im Sommer schmolz das Meereis um 30 % mehr als das langfristige Mittel.

Die Übersicht beinhaltet auch Daten über die drei Haupttreibhausgase – Kohlenstoffdioxid (CO2), Methan (CH4) und Lachgas (N2O). Es zeigt sich, dass die geschätzten globalen Strömungen von reinen Treibhausgasen in die Atmosphäre in den letzten Dekaden gestiegen sind. Dieser Trend setzte sich auch 2018 fort.

Kostenlose, nutzerfreundlich-aufbereitete und aktuelle Klimainformationen

Seit bereits 5 Jahren liefert das Erdbeobachtungsprogramm Copernicus der EU eine nie dagewesene Fülle an Umweltinformationen für die öffentliche Hand sowie für die wachsende Informationswirtschaft.

„Zuverlässige Erdbeobachtungsdaten, wie im European State of the Climate, spielen eine entscheidende Rolle bei der Einschätzung des Zustands unseres Planeten“, sagt Juan Garces de Marcilla, Director of Copernicus Services des ECMWF. „Mit seinen kostenlosen, nutzerfreundlichen und aktuellen Daten trägt Copernicus nicht nur zum Global Framework for Climate Services der World Meteorological Organization (WMO) bei, wir bieten Entscheidungsträgern, Organisationen und Unternehmen zudem wichtige Informationen für ihre zukünftige Planung – zum Wohl aller europäischen Bürger und darüber hinaus.“

Freja Vamborg, Senior Scientist des Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) bei ECMWF und federführende Autorin des European State of the Climate, präsentiert die Ergebnisse auf einer Pressekonferenz im Rahmen der European Geosciences Union General Assembly (EGU) am Dienstag, 9. April 2019 um 14:00 Uhr.

Informationen, die auf neuesten Daten basieren

Der European State of the Climate wurde von C3S zusammengestellt. Zusätzliche Informationen kamen vom Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS), dem Copernicus Emergency Management Service (Copernicus EMS), dem Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS), ECMWF und weiteren Partnern. Der Bericht deckt Daten über Europa sowie die europäische Arktis ab und vergleicht das Jahr 2018 in einem längerfristigen Kontext. Zusätzlich fasst er weltweite Information für wichtige Klimaindikatoren, wie Temperatur, Treibhausgase, Meereis, Gletscher und Meeresspiegel zusammen.

Der Inhalt des European State of the Climate basiert auf verschiedenen Datensätzen. Diese beinhalten sowohl Satelliten- und In-situ-Daten als auch Daten aus globalen „Reanalyse“-Computermodellen, die eine Kombination aus Algorithmen und zahlreichen historischen Datenquellen nutzen. Zudem sind Ergebnisse aus weiteren Computermodellen miteingeflossen. So wird sichergestellt, dass die Informationen auf neuesten Daten basieren und die aktuellsten Karten, Grafiken, und zahlreiche weitere Materialien zur Verfügung gestellt werden können.

Die kostenlosen und zuverlässigen Daten der Copernicus Services bieten wichtige Informationen für zahlreiche Branchen, wie die Landwirtschaft, öffentliche und humanitäre Hilfe, Gesundheitswesen, Versicherungen, Sicherheit, Tourismus sowie Städte- und Regionalplanung.

Copernicus trug zudem zum „Statement on the State of the Global Climate in 2018“ der WMO bei, das im März 2019 erschienen ist. Dieser Bericht gibt einen weltweiten Überblick über das Jahr 2018.

UTLC ERA attended at the SiTL 2019 in Paris

The international service provider for container transports by rail presented an initiative to develop cooperation with European partners and an ERAI transit market index

Paris, 27 March – Alexey Grom, the President of the JSC United Transport and Logistics Company – Eurasian Railway Alliance (UTLC ERA) told the representatives of business and the media about the need to increase cooperation with European carriers and presented the Eurasian Rail Alliance Index (ERAI) at the 36th International Exhibition of Transport and Logistics in Paris.

The potential of rail transport on the New Silk Road is high: in 2018, the volume of transit container traffic between Europe and China increased by about a third compared with 2017 and amounted to 370 thousand TEU in both directions. Today, when the distances are reduced due to the increase in speed, and the volume of railway transit along the Eurasian corridor is increasing every year, the UTLC ERA, which carries out 76% of all container traffic in this area, is striving to create a network of workable partnerships in Europe. Guided by this task, the company at the Exhibition of Transport and Logistics in Paris presented the initiative „#UE4EU“ -UTLC ERA for European Union“, aimed to develop long-term relations with European transport and logistics companies in the 1435 mm space. „It is necessary to find a common language, set common goals and build a cooperation route,“ said Alexey Grom, communicating with the media.

Transit traffic on the China-Europe route and in the opposite direction became competitive largely due to the high speed of delivery and optimal service tariffs. According to the president of the UTLC ERA Alexey Grom, these two advantages are clearly illustrated by the value of the ERAI index. The main goal pursued by the company in developing the index is to increase customer awareness of the cost of rail transit along the 1520 gauge, and in the future to use the index when making settlements with logistics companies and shippers in the Eurasian space. The value of the ERAI index depends on the level of infrastructure tariffs of carriers, the speed of cargo delivery by rail, the capacity of the infrastructure and many other indicators of transportation. Today, the shipper will be able to independently calculate online the cost of transportation costs from China to Europe and decide on the choice of mode of transport.

The premiere of the ERAI index in France was preceded by international recognition of the role of Eurasian rail transit: the ERAI index was included in the February issue of the Sea and Air Shipper Insight report, prepared by leading independent international analytical agency Drewry. The document compares the ERAI index with the global Drewry World Container Index, which represents the cost of shipping, and concluded that the price of rail transportation is less prone to fluctuations than the price of sea delivery.

UTLC ERA together with INFRAONE consulting company developed the Eurasian Rail Alliance Index (ERAI). The ERAI Transit Rail Freight Index shows to consignors the indicative cost of rail transit services on a gauge of 1520 mm.

The SiTL 2019, Semaine de l’innovation Transport & Logistique, is held at Port de Versailles in Paris, one of the largest exhibition centers in Europe, and is a large-scale specialized annual event in the field of transport and logistics for French and European shippers. In 2019, about 600 exhibitors from fifty countries took part in the event, while the share of international companies on a platform with stands occupied more than 30 per cent.

Als Dienstleister für Containertransporte auf der Schiene zwischen Europa und China in die eine Richtung und Südostasien und Europa in die andere Richtung wurde UTLC ERA auf paritätischer Grundlage durch die Russischen Eisenbahnen RZhD, die Weißrussische Eisenbahn sowie die Kasachische Eisenbahngesellschaft gegründet. Im Jahre 2018 betrug das Transportvolumen der UTLC ERA 280 500 TEU (gewachsen um 60% im Vergleich zu 2017). Jeden Tag starten auf der Breitspurbahn 1520 bis zu 15 Containerzüge der UTLC ERA.

Pantercon informs – money, crypto currency (Bitcoin) financial market of the future?

Crypto money – the new gold? Or even the new freedom …

Pantercon informs - money, crypto currency (Bitcoin) financial market of the future?

(Source: CC0)

The Pantercon Crypto One-Time One – Part 2: What is a crypto currency like Bitcoin?

Real currencies, as explained in the last article, are used by everyone, but they are centrally controlled from a location that doesn“t necessarily bring benefits. The crypto currency, on the other hand, is a product of the blockchain and completely decentralized, because nobody has control over it and everyone can use it anywhere and at any time.

The Bitcoin was developed in 2008 by Satoshi Nakamoto. You don“t know who or what it is, so Bitcoin can never disappear or be banned because there is no company. The Internet should be banned. It is believed that it was developed to counter the banking crisis. The people had lost confidence in the banks and the financial sector, with the Bitcoin a decentralized currency was created, which should solve all these doubts and problems.

The price of crypto currencies is not set from one place, but is based solely on supply and demand.

How many coins does a crypto currency have?

For most crypto currencies, the maximum number of coins that can be issued is determined by a cryptographic algorithm at the time the coin is created and cannot be changed. This makes the coins secure and rare – it is a good „store of value“.

In contrast to conventional Fiat money, crypto currencies are not inflationary, but deflationary currencies. This means that there is not more money in circulation than there is, as with Fiat money, but less. This is because people lose their private keys and the coins stored on these accounts can no longer be used.

Crypto currencies are a „simple unit of account“, they are easy to divide. The smallest unit of e.g. Bitcoin is 1 Satoshi, which is 1 millionth Bitcoin.

The transaction of crypto currencies costs practically nothing and is done in seconds. This makes it a perfect „means of transport“.

Double Spending? What is it?

The problem of „Double Spending“, i.e. using the coins twice, is caused by the decentralization. Digital goods can easily be copied like photos, MP3s or even films. These copies are identical and free of charge.

In conventional, centralized financial systems, this is managed and controlled by a third party, this party is missing in decentralized systems.

This raises the question whether coins are not also easy to copy, like these goods? The answer is simple: no!

In the crypto currency systems the double-spending problem is solved by Formation of a decentralized and counterfeit-proof blockchain and its consensus solved (more on this in another article). The blockchain is an unchangeable transaction history of a decentralized community.

Where are crypto currencies stored?

Crypto currencies are stored directly on the blockchain. There is a difference between tokens and coins.

A token is a crypto currency that does not have its own blockchain, but is based on a foreign blockchain. For example, you can generate ERC-20 tokens via the blockchain Ethereum and give them any name you like, e.g. PANX.

Coins, on the other hand, are generated via the own blockchain. Bitcoin – bitcoin, Ethereum – Ether, just to name the best known.

Account formation plays an important role in the development of a financial system.

An account on a blockchain is usually created via a so-called „wallet“, a repository for digital currencies. Such accounts are not linked to the name and data of the account holder, but consist only of a „private key“ and a „public address“.

The Private Key is the personal, private key with which you can log into your account. It is a random number between 1 and 2² which is a 78-digit number. There are just as many variations of keys.

So you can imagine it better: It is estimated that the earth has a 51-digit number of atoms. An unimaginable number.

So there are almost infinitely many private keys that can be used.

If such a wallet is stored on the mobile phone and the phone is lost, the wallet is still there. As long as the private key is present, it can be restored anytime and anywhere.

The Private Key must not be passed on and must be kept in a safe place. If it is lost, the account cannot be restored and all crypto currencies on it are lost forever. If it is passed on to third parties, they can freely dispose of that account, it is as if the signatory number and the password of the online banking, including TAN numbers, were passed on.

Steal or hack coins?

In the media you often read that someone has had their coins stolen, this is only possible if the private key was either given away or not kept well enough and could be stolen. Hacking such an account or blockchain is not possible.

It is important to understand what the press means by blockchain hack, because they convey it wrongly, either out of ignorance or intention.

To transfer tokens/coins to customers, the stock exchange requires the private key, which they store in encrypted form. Since the control of the private key now lies with the exchange and not with the customer, it is always risky to leave large sums on Exchangers. Because if a brute force attack should take place, it can be that exactly your private key is among the stolen ones.

If one speaks of hacked, a hacker has succeeded in decrypting the private keys of customers by brute force attacks on a stock exchange and thus gaining control over their tokens/coins.

The public address is an alphanumeric code and is derived from the private key and generated automatically. It usually consists of 34 digits and numbers and is equivalent to the IBAN of your account. You can tell this key to people who should transfer coins to you. The other person only has to scan the code to your address or enter the code and you can transfer coins in any number. It is impossible to guess the private key by the public address.

Conclusion: Crypto currencies are absolutely forgery-proof and decentralized currencies, provided the account holder pays attention to his private key!

Pantercon informs – Gold, Money, Crypto, Bitcoin, Gold-2.0

Why money is less safe than you think

Pantercon informs - Gold, Money, Crypto, Bitcoin, Gold-2.0

(Source: CC0)

The Pantercon Crypto times table – Part 1: What is Money?

Money is the primary means of payment today, but its value is not the same as it used to be. In order to understand the background exactly, we start at the very beginning – with gold.

How does gold work as money?

In the Stone Age, money in kind, commodity money and utility money such as animals, rare stones, shells, fruits, spices and much more were used as means of payment. But they were often difficult to handle, because every single thing had a different value. Not even 2 cows necessarily had the same value – one gave more milk than another.

In order to simplify the barter transactions, the people used starting from approx. 1000 before Christ, primarily gold, so-called coin money as means of payment. Around 500 B.C. King Croesus had the first coins minted. It had certain advantages over all other goods and fulfilled the criteria to be officially recognized as currency or means of payment.

-Gold is rare and cannot be reproduced, changed or died. Therefore it is a good store of value.
-It is transportable – compared to animals it is a good means of transport, because it is small.
-Simple unit of account – 1 ounce of gold always has the same value as another ounce of gold, there were no differences

Gold had no intrinsic value such as animals or rice, which one could eat, or fabrics from which clothes could be sewn. Gold was „only“ gold and served „only“ as a means of payment. For example, a gold chain could be made from it, but it was still gold. Trust in gold was the only value and since everyone used and accepted it, the value and trust increased. Trust is the most important factor for a means of payment.

Gold was a decentralized means of payment. That is, there was not one place that spent gold, but anyone could get it out of the ground and use it. Everyone and yet nobody had control over it.

But gold also has its disadvantages:

-It is rare, but counterfeiters added copper to increase the quantity.
-It is small, but heavy and therefore the transport is not always comfortable.
-It is difficult to share, e.g. in shops. You couldn’t just cut off a piece of the ounce

From gold to money

Around 1500 A.D. people found a seemingly perfect solution. Promissory notes. The bank issued a promissory note for the value of the gold deposit. This reflected the exact value of the inlaid gold and was thus covered in gold. This is also called the gold standard, which applied from 1870. Gold standard means that the bank was obliged to redeem the promissory notes.

Thus paper money was born and had some advantages:

-Since it was tied to gold, it was just as rare as gold, so it had the same value. Due to the elaborate design of the promissory notes, they could not be forged. It was therefore a good store of value.
-The paper money is small and light and therefore easy to transport, so it is also a good transport medium.
-It is easy to divide, as there are different size units, so a good unit of account is a good one.

By making it used by all people, everyone had confidence in it. If you had brought it to the bank, you would have easily recovered the gold you had put in before.

What’s Fiat money?

Paper money was the perfect means of payment until the central banks made a big mistake in the 1944s. They considered the gold standard, which had already been suspended during the First World War, unimportant, because nobody intended to exchange the paper money back into gold and slowly abolished it.

From 1944 to 1971, only the dollar was tied to gold. Gold cover in the dollar was replaced by unofficial oil cover after a massive crisis in the 1970s. Thus, King Dollar could keep the trust of the people but the gold standard and thus the real value was no longer available.

They began to print more money than the equivalent in gold was available and they continue to do so. It’s like taking a banknote at home and copying it. That is forbidden for you, but the central banks are allowed to do it, and they alone are allowed to do it! It is only possible for the central banks and allowed to produce the money, so it is central.

Digital with electronic money it is even easier to increase money. It can be multiplied quite simply, that is how it is usually done – it is created out of nothing.

By this money multiplication the value of the money sinks approx. 4-5% per year – this is called inflation. If one calculates the value of a 100EUR bill at the beginning of the Euro issue and now 16 years later, then it is clear that a 100EUR bill is far from worth 100EUR anymore, but not even half. In principle a banknote is not worth more than a piece of paper. Thus, it has lost the criterion for a good store of value.

The fact that it is centrally controlled by one body, namely the central bank, has disadvantages:

-It has full command.
-The bank can determine when money can be withdrawn
-She can also determine how much money you can withdraw.
-It determines who can have an account
-The bank can simply freeze an account, you don’t get a cent more! E.g. Greece or Cyprus and also with us such a scenario would be theoretically possible overnight.

Just like gold, money has no inherent value, the value is based purely on trust. But since everyone around the world accepts today’s money, trust is assured.

If every person would go to the bank at the same time and claim the saved money, there would be a massive problem. It is not available! It exists mostly only digitally and also in gold it could not be paid out, because the value is not covered for a long time any more. Nowadays money has absolutely nothing more to do with gold and is therefore called Fiat money.

It is to be hoped that this scenario does not arrive, because if it did, the financial world would collapse on the spot and chaos would break out.

If the cash were to be abolished, as the plan has already been expressed several times, the central banks would have control over everything and everyone. For some reason, the central bank could restrict the use of each individual, you would be completely destitute, from one moment to the next.

The question then arises: is trust in today’s money or in central banks really justified?

Crypto currencies, the new #Goldstandard2000

In 2008, a new form of currency was developed, the crypto currency. No matter if you use Bitcoin, Ether or any other digital crypto currency, they all run through a blockchain and are decentralized.

Strictly speaking, crypto currencies are like gold, only in new, digital technology. The volatility exists only for the reason, because crypto currencies are traded and are subject to fluctuations in the purchase and sale.

If, for example, Bitcoin were the new currency that everyone uses, then it would no longer be traded and it would become stable. Also the confidence in it grows. It is the simple explanation of supply and demand: if a lot is sold, the supply increases – the value decreases. If a lot is bought, the supply falls – the value rises.

The advantages of crypto currencies are obvious:

-They are completely open to anyone, anyone can use them, there is no place that would or could forbid it.
-24/7 access (24 hours a day, 7 days a week)
-Visible for everyone
-Not hackable, since no central party has access or can change anything at will
-It is not manipulable and cannot fall victim to thieves. because it is stored decentrally on many PCs at the same time.
-Not reproducible with a fixed coin offer – no inflation

Many banks and financial experts still like to talk badly about crypto currencies at the moment. But if you look at fiat money – today’s money and crypto currencies exactly, then the regular currencies have their certain and specific shortcomings that the money economy is aware of.

The only drawback of crypto currencies is their volatility (the extent to which prices, stocks, currencies, interest rates or even entire markets fluctuate within a short period of time), which is itself offset by the annual 4-5% depreciation of regular currencies.

Alvarez & Marsal reagiert auf den steigenden Consulting-Bedarf im Einkauf und holt Jürgen Wetzstein ins Team

Jürgen Wetzstein wird Managing Director und leitet das Procurement Team der renommierten Beratungsfirma in Europa

Alvarez & Marsal reagiert auf den steigenden Consulting-Bedarf im Einkauf und holt Jürgen Wetzstein ins Team

Jürgen Wetzstein

München – 5. November 2018 – Alvarez & Marsal (A&M), eines der weltweit führenden Consulting-Unternehmen, gewinnt Jürgen Wetzstein für die Leitung seines Procurement-Teams in Europa. Unterstützung bei Optimierungen im Beschaffungsbereich sind eines der strategischen Wachstumsfelder für A&M. Die herausragende Expertise und die „Hands-On“ Mentalität von Herrn Wetzstein werden der Strategie von A&M, ihren Kunden eine breitgefächerte und tiefgehende Wissensbasis zur Verfügung zu stellen, zusätzlichen Fahrtwind geben.
Jürgen Wetzstein bringt mehr als 17 Jahre Erfahrung aus Führungspositionen bei verschiedenen renommierten Industrie- und Consultingunternehmen mit sowie als Interims Chief Procurement Officer (CPO). Nachdem er bei PricewaterhouseCoopers bereits große Erfolge als Leiter der Strategy& Procurement Practice hatte, setzte er bei Accenture seine Erfolgsgeschichte fort.

„Als eines der führenden Consulting Unternehmen in Europa erweitern wir stetig unser Team mit ausgewiesenen Experten, um unseren Kunden so eine bestmögliche Beratung in allen Bereichen zu bieten. Neben seiner ausgeprägten Expertise in Einkauf- und Supply-Chain Fragen bringt Jürgen Wetzstein die „Hands-On“ Mentalität mit, die A&M auszeichnet“, sagt Jürgen Zapf, Managing Director bei Alvarez & Marsal.

„Der Einkauf befindet sich in einer Transformation: Die Konzentration der Unternehmen auf Kernkompetenzen treibt den Bedarf an zugekauften Waren und Leistungen, während parallel dazu Prozesse digitalisiert werden und sich die erforderlichen Fähigkeiten im Einkauf dramatisch verändern. Für letzteres stehen beispielhaft die Verschiebungen innerhalb der Warengruppen (von Mechanik zu Elektronik, von Hardware zu Services) und der Bedarf an Datenexperten auch im Einkauf. In diesem Spannungsfeld arbeiten wir sehr pragmatisch mit unseren Kunden daran, die Einkaufsfunktion zukunftssicher zu machen und zeitglich deren Wertbeitrag zum Unternehmensergebnis zu steigern“, sagt Jürgen Wetzstein, Managing Director bei Alvarez & Marsal.

Als Tony Alvarez und Bryan Marsal 1983 ihr Knowhow bündelten und Alvarez & Marsal gründeten, verfolgten sie das Ziel, Betriebsabläufe, Leistungssteigerung und Wertschöpfung nahtlos miteinander zu verknüpfen, um Unternehmen dabei zu helfen, Stagnation in Wachstum umzuwandeln und nachhaltige Ergebnisse zu erzielen. Diese Zielsetzung ist nach wie vor das Herzstück von Alvarez & Marsal (A&M).
A&M ist heute ein führender Anbieter von ganzheitlichen Wertsteigerungsprogrammen, Turnaround- und Sanierungsberatung sowie Interims-Management-Lösungen. Weiterhin beraten wir Unternehmen und deren Gesellschafter mit Transaktionsdienstleistungen und Bewertungen sowie holistischen und integrierten Beratungsdienstleistungen und Datenanalyse („Big-Data-Analysen“) für forensische Untersuchungen und Rechtstreitigkeiten. Wir sind faktengetrieben und handlungsorientiert. Wir stellen die richtigen Fragen und krempeln die Ärmel hoch, um unsere Kunden ans Ziel zu bringen. Wir finden die richtige Lösung und setzen sie zur richtigen Zeit auf die richtige Art und Weise um. Dafür steht A&M.
A&M bietet Unternehmen aus allen Branchen weltweit Problemlösungsansätze und Wertschöpfungspotentiale. Unsere Spezialisten sind erfahrene Führungskräfte, erstklassige Berater und Branchenexperten, deren reicher Erfahrungsschatz unsere Mandanten dabei unterstützt, aus Veränderungen strategischen Mehrwert zu schöpfen, Risiken zu kontrollieren und bei jedem Schritt eine Wertsteigerung zu erzielen.

Ein junger Flüchtling erzählt von seiner Flucht – Rostams Reise – Von Afghanistan nach Deutschland

soeben erschien druckfrisch der autobiografische Roman

Ein junger Flüchtling erzählt von seiner Flucht - Rostams Reise - Von Afghanistan nach Deutschland

Cover

Grad 15 Jahre jung war Rostam Nazari. Er erlebte die Gräuel der Flucht, Ungewissheit, war Schleppern ausgeliefert, verlor seine Familie – auf dem Weg nach Deutschland

DRUCKFRISCH erschienen im Verlag DeBehr

… Meine Eltern sagten: „Wir gehen in zwei Wochen nach Deutschland. Wir verkaufen alle unsere Sachen.“ Wir haben gefragt, wie sie auf diese Idee gekommen sind. Mein Vater antwortete: „Ich habe die Idee seit ungefähr acht Jahren in meinem Kopf. Ich will, dass meine Kinder etwas lernen. Und im Iran haben wir keine Hoffnung mehr.“ … Im Februar 2000 wurde Rostam Nazari in Sorabi, einem Ort in Afghanistan, geboren und lebte bis zum siebten Lebensjahr dort. Das Leben in Afghanistan war nicht einfach. Die Familie flüchtet gemeinsam in den Iran. Als er 15 Jahre alt ist, macht sich seine Familie, bestehend aus 13 Personen, auf den Weg nach Europa, doch sie werden es nicht gemeinsam schaffen. Der junge Autor berichtet in seinem Erstlingswerk über sein Geburtsland Afghanistan, die Flucht in den Iran und seinen langen, gefahrvollen Weg nach Deutschland sowie sein Leben hier, stets auf der Suche nach Bildung, Frieden und Freiheit. Erst in Deutschland lernte Rostam Nazari Lesen und Schreiben. Mit einem Vorwort von Lukas Erler. Taschenbuch, 274 Seiten.
Preis: 12.95
