Be there on 22 November 2018 in Frankfurt am Main when the Logistics Digital Conference (LDC), to be held in conjunction with Hypermotion, will consider a number of exciting questions, including AI in the supply chain, the goods transport of the future, and start-ups in the logistics and transport sectors.
The three sessions will be organised and chaired by three publications and a newspaper: LOGISTIK HEUTE, LOGISTRA and TRANSPORT.
The first session will answer the question why artificial intelligence will be changing the supply chain in future. In the second session experts will discuss how and why goods transport will change and what opportunities such change will create. In the third session we shall be telling you how start-ups are completely transforming logistics and transport – and why that is not the end of the world.
LDC! Session 1
Thursday, 22 November 2018 9.30 – 11.00 a.m.
The market for products and applications featuring artificial intelligence is growing world-wide. AI has also found its way into production and logistics. Among the questions to be discussed by prominent experts in this session will be: In which areas of supply-chain management is AI nowadays no longer science fiction but science fact? In what areas could AI processes bring significant improvements in future? Where do the limits to the use of AI lie, and what are the risks?
LDC! Session 2
Thursday, 22 November 2018 11:45 a.m. – 1.15 p.m.
The EU, and Germany along with it, have adopted ambitious climate-protection goals. Not only city logistics, but long-distance goods transport too, will have to adapt to economic and ecological changes. Among the questions to be discussed by experts in Session 2 of the LDC will be: How can long-haul freight-forwarding firms be more efficient in CO2 emissions and costs? What drive technology can these firms adopt? Are new business models an opportunity? What role will networking and intermodal transport play?
LDC! Session 3
Thursday, 22 November 2018 2.45 – 4.15 p.m.
Anyone who can translate digital ideas into technologies and new business models will have a competitive edge on other businesses. In the logistics and transport sectors, too, there are frequently start-ups which are a length ahead when it comes to digital development. Are newcomers a danger of which conventional market players should be afraid? Or can established transport and logistics providers learn something from these young enterprises? And what might a digital business model of their own look like?
