NOW, AS YOUR QUES­TION EN­COM­PASSED THE WORD TECH­NOL­OGY, LET'S JUST LOOK AT A FEW:

Silicon Luxembourg - - OPEN INNOVATION -

• 3D print­ing: to what ex­tent will it im­pact lo­gis­tics? The one-mil­lion-dol­lar ques­tion... My bet is that it will end up into a hy­brid model com­bin­ing tra­di­tional lo­gis­tics and 3D print­ing.

• Big Data will have a tremen­dous im­pact in terms of ca­pac­ity op­ti­miza­tion, cus­tomer ex­pe­ri­ence, re­duced risk and maybe new busi­ness mod­els that we can­not imag­ine to­day.

• IOT is very rel­e­vant to lo­gis­tics, pos­si­bly lead­ing to a much more event-driven lo­gis­tics.

• Blockchain can be ap­plied to many use cases in lo­gis­tics in which the stake­hold­ers need for trans­par­ent, non-rep­utable records.

• Ro­bot­ics is gaining a lot of trac­tion, lead­ing to mas­sive gains of pro­duc­tiv­ity and zero-de­fect.

• Self-driv­ing ve­hi­cles, in­clud­ing air­borne ve­hi­cles, are com­ing as well, even if there is still a very long way to go.
