This week the International Physical Internet Conference 2019 (IPIC 2019) takes place in London. IPIC 2019 aims to provide an open forum for researchers, industry representatives, government officials and citizens to together explore, discuss, introduce leading-edge concepts, methodologies, recent projects, technological advancements, start-up initiatives, for current and future Physical Internet implementation.
The Physical Internet Initiative aims at transforming the way physical objects are moved, stored, realized, supplied and used, pursuing global logistics efficiency and sustainability. Originating from Professor Benoit Montreuil in 2006, this vision, revolutionizing current paradigms, has stirred great interest from scientific, industrial as well as governmental communities.
Conference topics include inter-connected logistics, Physical Internet fundamentals, business models, governance and implementation, cross-chain control, synchromodal transportation, IT systems, stakeholders and their roles. New business models, enabling technologies and experimentations already underway will be presented.
On Wednesday, July 10, the IPIC 2019 will focus on city logistics, parcel logistics, retail logistics, and e-commerce.
