08: Physical Internet: A Seismic Shift for Logistics and Mobility

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

Globally integrated self-regulating data flows offer a highly efficient information exchange. Physical Internet (PI) transfers the underlying principle of the exchange of standardised data packages – combined with real-time decisions – to the material flows. This results in a resilient economy supported by a true “people, planet, profit” oriented discipline of logistics & mobility. The session will provide suggestions of how to overcome apparent discrepancies and also how to reduce idle power drastically, including the physical world. A journey from new business models down to their very basics.
