Alexa, Move My Goods By Rail!
We’ve all come to accept digital transformation in our personal lives, whether that is turning the heating on remotely, tracking our exercise on an app or ordering our food shopping online.
Yet despite recent progress, rail freight is often behind the curve on digitisation and digital solutions are rarely part of the core business. We need to change that if we are to meet the key challenges of decarbonisation and modal shift.
Join us at our first member event of 2022 to discuss the potential for digital transformation from small scale projects to system change and understand how we can move from ‘geek’ to ‘mainstream’ as we build digital into the core of what we do.
Our event, sponsored by Knorr Bremse, will be held at the Digital Catapult, London, and attendees will be offered the chance to see first-hand the work of the Catapult in supporting digital developments, including immersive technology, robotics, 5G, sensors and more.
Speakers at the event will discuss the data-driven future for freight vehicles, showcase developments in other sectors and discuss how we can move to the decarbonised terminals of the future. We have confirmed speakers from Digital Catapult, University of Hull and other invited speakers will be added shortly.
The event is free of charge and following the formal agenda there will be networking drinks and canapes.
Where – Digital Catapult, 101 Euston Road, London, NW1 2RA
When – 10 March 2022. Starts at 13:30
