Programme

The IRU Logistics and Innovation Forum offers road transport companies and stakeholders the chance to network and hear from experts in the transport and logistics industry. 

The in-depth programme for the event has been carefully crafted to provide the latest insights into road safety innovations in areas such as fleet management and digitalisation of the supply chain, including distribution and warehouse systems. This was inspired by the recent global IRU survey of transport operators on key trends impacting the industry which found that safety is considered to be one of the biggest innovation opportunity for transport and logistics companies.

Sessions moderated by Matthias Maedge.
