The competition is on for retailers to offer the widest variety of goods and foods delivered in the shortest amount of time. Indeed, now you can just tell your chatbot what you want and it could turn up within an hour!


What are the implications of this near instant fulfilment for the logistics organisations of today and tomorrow? Granted not everybody needs – or is prepared to pay for – such services but with ‘Click and Collect’ now a major advantage for the bricks and mortar retailers with fully robotised collect points not that far away things are indeed changing. Add into this vehicle platooning, autonomous vehicles and even delivery drones and the business of logistics is feeling the same massive changes as the automotive industry - move away from fossil fuels, move from ownership to usage, connected and autonomous – indeed many of these automotive industry changes will directly impact logistics.

This event will explore how the logistics industry is not only embracing these new technologies but being a catalyst for change to provide their customers with a competitive edge whilst driving an eco-agenda.

The Automotive and Transport SIG is championed by Tom Blackie, RealVNC; John Okas, Real Wireless and Nigel Wall, Climate Associates.
