Hulsegge, G. Preenen, P. Vaas, F. Contributor Kopp, R. (editor) Senderek, R. (editor) Dworschak, B. (editor) Publication year 2021 Abstract Technologically the logistics sector is rapidly changing as it continually enhances its process optimization. There is a keen eye on continuously improving quick dispatch and delivery, with minimal errors, very low costs, and high flexibility. Although the Dutch logistics sector is certainly advancing technologically, it is not the most innovative sector in the Netherlands (SEO, 2019). Moreover, it is rather traditional when it comes to personnel management and leadership (“White paper workplace innovation in logistics”, Manpower Group 2015), which can hinder innovation. One reason for this limited innovativeness and traditional organisational culture is the dominance of small family firms in the sector that often have lean means for innovation. Another reason are the traditional management styles in those small and medium sized firms.
