This summer was no ‘silly season’ for logistics. It came to our attention that 3D printing, delivery robots and a new app for inland navigation found their way to the logistics sector last month. Click on an article for more details.
A new month… a new WDP Digest! The first drone deliveries and blockchain containers are now more than just dreams.
The news we received last month shows that more and more companies and logistics service providers are focusing on sustainability with innovations like electric catenaries for trucks, smart delivery boxes, emission-free deliveries, etc. WDP fully supports these initiatives, which is why we’re showcasing them in this month’s WDP Digest.
Self-driving delivery vans, warehouse robots, and self-organising logistics. No idea seems too crazy for logistics, according to last month’s news reports. This latest issue of WDP Digest is dedicated to autonomous technology in the logistics sector.
We start the new month with a new WDP Digest. For the logistics sector, spring brings us new ideas, innovative solutions, and hope for improvement. Read about bio-fuel and low-sulphur heating oil, the launching of Uber Freight in the Netherlands, and the challenges for zero-emission zones.
There’s a lot to celebrate at Eurohub Sud, a very promising logistics hub in Luxembourg, this week. For example, the new access bridge to reach this logistics hotspot was officially inaugurated, WDP opened a second building of 25,000 m² for Auchan and Innovation First there, and works on a third warehouse began.
