i-Cargo Workshop on Logistic Data Infrastructures
The iCargo project is organising a workshop on logistic data infrastructures in Munich, Germany, on the 4th of June. The workshop will deal with the challenges, potential solutions and busness models that are associated with logistic data infrastructures. CLECAT is a consortium partner of the iCargo project. The project acts on the assumption that logistics represents a vital link between the economies in Europe and is fundamental to conduct business in today's international supply networks. At the same time novel ICT infrastructures offer unprecedented capabilities to capture, analyze and exchange data across the supply chain. Through the intelligent use of information, the potential of global logistics networks can be maximized, reducing the underutilization of logistics resources and the ecological as well as economical impacts of this underutilization. CLECAT recommends all members and interested parties to register for and participate in the event. More information on the agenda and how to register is available here.
