Ideas about how digitalization and automation will affect the transport system and society are many and diverse. In particular, this is true for goods and freight transportation.
Questions arise like: How long does it take until driverless freight vehicles are occupying the streets? In what form? Can data and digitalization improve efficiency in transport concepts? Will automation change the business structure? In short: What will the future look like?
In this seminar we present four future scenarios for the development of digitalized freight transport. The scenarios are developed in collaboration with more than 45 transport professionals and researchers.
