Event Description

The global logistics system is not sustainable from an economic, environmental or social perspective. Re-thinking logistics is a grand challenge as big as the information technology grand challenge that resulted in the (digital) Internet. It is proposed that in order to meet the logistics sustainability grand challenge, our logistics systems will evolve towards a Physical Internet. The merits and challenges of implementing the vision will be presented from three viewpoints and illustrated through demonstrations in the Physical Internet Center.
