CILT WEBINAR: Where is Digitalisation in the Transport and Logistics Space heading?
September 23 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pmFree
We are pleased to announce that the first in our ‘Digitalisation Series’ of international webinars examining Digitalisation and Industry 4.0 issues in relation to the logistics and transport sector will take place on Thursday 23 September under the theme “Where is Digitalisation in the Transport and Logistics Space Heading?
The logistics industry faces a challenging future. Environmental risks, geopolitical risks, demographic changes, and potential regulatory restrictions will all appear as speed bumps over the next ten years. This webinar will focus on the rapidly evolving digital technology landscape and examine how some of these technologies might help in smoothing the ride ahead for the logistics and transport industry.
The webinar will examine the primary trends from a technical perspective in the freight and transport arena (including the efficiency focus of new technologies linked back to sustainability), consider capability and skills requirements for implementation of new technologies, and discuss the implementation of new technologies in emerging markets.
