More than 1 million immigrants entered Europe in 2015. In January 2016, the numbers are not going down despite bad weather and desperate conditions in refugee camps. This is not only humanitarian but also legal problem for the European governments. As reported by World Economic Forum, in March 2016 the European Commission will reveal its new asylum regulation.

Over 2015 logistics industry in Europe was particularly affected by this crisis. Many European borders had to be closed or protected by increased security, which caused delays and significantly increased cost for logistics providers. In addition human lives were endangered as some people were trying to hide in lorries in order to get to the UK no matter what.
