Horizontal Collaboration by Collaborative Sourcing & Joint Tendering

Friday, January 21st, 2022

Why this workshop

Supply network coordination and collaboration is key in delivering a decarbonized freight transport and logistics sector in an affordable way and it is one of the key areas of the implementation of the ALICE Roadmap for Zero Emissions Logistics 2050.

In this workshop, ALICE will share its 2022 work plan within the Coordination and Collaboration Theme and we will dive in the subject of Horizontal Collaboration by Collaborative Sourcing, based on the experiences and learnings of the ALICE member TRANSPOREON that will share this white paper and discuss it with participants to take the next steps into actual implementation.
