Panel Introduction

The global, as well as European, supply chains have struggled in the previous years as the volume of transported goods has been ever growing, while having to deal with issues such as capacity of infrastructure, lack of truck drivers or need to reduce environmental impact. Adding recent steep costs increases and lead time issues into equation has sparked the debate on the sustainability of current supply chains. Major challenge lies in physical aspect of the logistics - there’s no app, that can replace need to physically move the goods. The volume of goods is so tremendous, we need very large transportation means, which makes alternative drive technologies less applicable than in individual or public transportation. Also need for infrastructure investments such as roads, railways, ports or intermodal terminals are so high and take so long, that most governments struggle to keep up with the demand. Is there a way out? How does logistics industry approach to improve sustainability while dealing with these challenges?
