Physical Internet : Shaping the Evolution of Supply Chains and Logistics Ecosystems, Workshop

GTRI Conference Center

Auditorium, 250 14th Street NW

Atlanta, GA 30318-9108

October 13, 2022 @ 9:30 am 12:00 pm


The workshop is positioned in a post-covid world subject to uncertainties, variability, and disruptions, where supply chains and logistic networks have to evolve toward higher concurrent agility, adaptability, availability, autonomation, resilience, security, intelligence, net-zero sustainability, and transparency. The workshop addresses elevating their siloed conception to encompass a Physical Internet ecosystem system perspective (1) embracing universal interconnectivity, modularization, open sharing, and circularity, (2) leveraging technological innovations (e.g. AI, VR, IoT, 3D printing, robotics, autonomous vehicles) and (3) enabling to master the interplay between supply chain localization, regionalization, and globalization. The workshop will combine shaping industry best-practices, policies, innovation, research, as well as paradigms, mental models, and business models.
