This webinar is for ALICE members only.
The Corridors, Hubs and Synchromodality theme leadership team invites you to this webinar in which we will briefly share experiences and practices of Physical Internet in air freight under the leadership of our ALICE member Air Cargo Belgium.
As community partner and cluster organization at BRUcargo, the logistics cluster at Brussels Airport, Air Cargo Belgium’s main objective is to increase the competitiveness of the (local) air cargo industry. ACB stimulates innovation to attract additional cargo flows to BRUcargo and to position the airport as the preferred European air cargo gateway. In this sense, Air Cargo Belgium is supporting the Physical Internet concept and aligns its long-term strategy with the objectives of the Physical Internet. ACB strongly believes that this is the only way to comply with the challenging ambitions of the European Commission to become the first climate-neutral continent by 2050 and to make the European Green Deal reality.
ACB already realized some important first steps towards the introduction of Physical Internet at BRUcargo. The most important milestone to mention is probably the introduction of BRUcloud and the development of some joint applications available on the platform, however also the Digital Green Lane, the FENIX-project, an IoT-project, XR-projects* and so on are worth mentioning here. ACB and its partners strive to keep BRUcargo ahead of competitors as one of the most innovative air cargo zones within Europe. To do this, the adoption of the Physical Internet will be crucial and a real game-changer for the transport and logistics industry the next decades.
The main purpose of this webinar is to introduce you to the topic of Physical Internet within the air freight industry and to ACB’s Physical Internet roadmap. At the same time, we are very much looking forward to your feedback to develop our roadmap further and to discover potential connections with other transport modes in the future.
