Webinar: innovations in logistics

November 04, 20203 minutesEvents

We’re pleased to announce that on Thursday December 10, 2020 we will be hosting the second in our series of free and inspirational quarterly webinars. As before, we will have a unique combination of experienced speakers, all working at the forefront of technology innovation in international and local logistics. 

In a world that is ever increasingly connected, not just data but physical packages are now sent at speed all over the world. For the global economy and for the e-commerce industry, in particular, this level and relative ease of interconnection has been a great development. However, we need to be aware of some of the negative outcomes and unintended consequences as well. It takes smart thinking and continuous innovation to power logistics toward a more fair and digitised, de-carbonised and resource-efficient future.

In this webinar, the speakers will share their thoughts and aspirations, the innovations they are currently pursuing, how they aim to make the industry ever more efficient, the challenges they face and their expectations for the future.
