International Conference in Smart Logistics

International Economic Forum in Logistics

November 13th, 2018. Barcelona

This event wants to deepen on what are going to be the new tendencies within the urban logistics thanks to the application of the new technologies and new models of disruptive business. On the one hand, the use of BlockChain is improving the competitiveness of the main international port centers and, on the other hand, the implementation of collaborative economy models in the management of transport fleets allows to reduce congestion in large cities without reducing capacity of the logistics chain.

These issues will be treated by experts from the world of logistics, with experiences from the cities of Barcelona, Stockholm or Rome, among others, cases such as logistics in the Netherlands and international trends where international experts will participate.
