Save the date for our conference: Robotics Changing the Logistics Landscape

Conference of the Cluster for Logistics in collaboration with CSCMP Benelux



The subject of this year's conference "Robotics and Artificial Intelligence change the Logistics Landscape" covers the important trends that will deeply transform production and services in the next years. Artificial intelligence, robotics and Industry 4.0 will impact logistics processes as well and in order to get a better understanding of the changes, experts from the field will give an overview of what is to come.

Register via Eventbrite

Emerging technologies like robotics, artificial intelligence or robochats will have a big impact on Industry 4.0 and hence transport and logistics as well as the industrial shipper’s warehouses and supply chains. By understanding the difference between hype and reality, you can strategically plan your “customer – machine interface”. Case stories and demonstrations give precious insights to evaluate the impact on your business and the Cluster for Logistics partnered up with the Benelux Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) and Digital for Industry (D4I) partners, to assemble an international panel of speakers at this year’s autumn conference.
