01 // Sports equipment
Sport places the highest demands on the equipment used. This applies in particular to the clothing that accompanies the athletes in their everyday training and competitions. State-of-the-art materials, equipped with functional membranes, should support the professional to ensure the difference for victory in the end.
The major challenge facing the industry is the now highly volatile procurement markets and constantly changing supplier capacities. A global network and years of industry experience can help you to develop a competitive and state-of-the-art range.
02 // Food products
Nowadays, food is no longer just a commodity, but rather an expression of lifestyle. Consumers' requirements, both in terms of the origin of products and their production, are now much more in focus.
Public interest in ingredients and the sheer inexhaustible availability of background information are creating a completely new set of requirements for the industry.
Stable and absolutely reliable procurement sources, high flexibility in processing and an excellent network enable Frontem to support you profitably at all stages of the value chain.
03 // TRADE & SERVICE PROVIDER
Retail and service providers are experiencing difficult economic times. Since market requirements are constantly changing, processes must be designed flexibly - for example in the form of a digitalized landscape that can react quickly to the volatility of the market.
A transparent customer database gives retailers the opportunity to respond to preferred customer requests at an early stage and to design products accordingly. Close communication with the supply chain enables retailers to meet customer needs more quickly in the form of data mining. This means you have a market advantage even if your competitors behave disruptively.
04 // Consumer Goods
Consumer goods have a huge impact on people's lives - regardless of whether they are consumer or industrial goods. It doesn't matter whether these goods have to be finished or processed further. They are part of an economic process to which all industries are bound.
To ensure the sustainable success of the process chain, questions regarding future production sites, the type of production, the attractiveness of the products, the pricing and their marketing must be clarified.
In addition, organizations must be set up in a stable manner, processes must be made lean and flexible and the necessary technical support must be guaranteed.
06 // Pharmaceutical & Healthcare
Successful companies within this field are characterised by solid scientific and commercial competence and operational stability. Therefore, pharmaceutical companies must invest heavily in research to meet the ever-changing health requirements.
People's awareness of the healthcare, pharmaceutical and energy industries has never been greater than it is today. Demographic change makes it clear that our society is getting older and older. As a result, the healthcare system will be under increasing strain in the future.
For this reason, fundamental questions must be asked about the positioning of the health care system. For example, how can the profitability of health-promoting institutions be ensured without risking a loss of quality in care? Future-oriented processes and the presentation of a lean organisation are further topics that need to be drilled down to ensure sustainability, we accompany the implementation process from the very beginning.

08 // Transport & Logistics
Logistics processes are crucial to ensure that the value-added chain is successful throughout. To design them optimally is essential to ensure customer satisfaction and to keep prices moderate in relation to the market. Logistics costs average 15 to 25 percent - depending on the means of transport and the transport distance. It is therefore essential to adapt the transport and logistics structure optimally to the respective company in which is being supplied.
Logistics is an overarching function that supports the basic operational functions of procurement, production and sales. In an integrated value chain, logistics is divided into external and internal logistics. In both cases, planning and control of the material flow is of fundamental importance. This logistical process is accompanied by the flow of information, which should be fully mapped systemically and effectively communicated with all involved parties.
