We are currently working on a rapid Review on Automation in Freight Transport and Handling Systems, within a Foresight project on the Future of Mobility. The project is within the UK government, and it aims to inform and support policy makers to make decisions on the future of mobility looking at 2040.
The review considers current and future trends of new technologies and automation, drivers and barriers for their implementation, potential transferability to the UK context and related benefits/competitive advantages.
We would really appreciate your contribution on identifying any relevant work published worldwide in this field, including papers, reports, trials/experiences, and any other evidence on automation in freight transport and logistics. Trans-shipment and any modes of transport are included.
