Logistik & Transport - we will be there

​Logistik & Transport is the Nordic region’s leading exhibition and conference, for the entire transport & logistics community. It is an annual highlight, taking place at the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre (Svenska Mässan) in Gothenburg on November 5-7, 2018. This year the organizers are enlarging the exhibition with additional focus on internal logistics. As last year, Northern LEAD will be there! 
As previous years, Chalmers University of Technology and University of Gothenburg have two booths side-by-side, presenting the width of activities both within research and education. Also, where five research projects are presented on posters. The topics are stretching from the port conflict and supply chain finance to automation and sustainability and is good examples will give a good overview of the ongoing logistics research at the two universities. Exhibitors can give their views on which of the projects they want to see more from on Logistics & Transport 2019, when planning an even more extensive research effort. 

Below are the projects, presented in the exhibition booth:
