Innovation in Urban Logistics. How automated driving technology can increase growth in e-commerce

E-Commerce has been growing for more than 20 years. Covid has given an additional booster. Online shopping (both B2C and B2B) is the new normal. But how to bridge the last ~10km between the city border and the final delivery destination? Many hopes are pinned on automated driving technology. On the one hand, this technology seems to be available and tangible in the short term. On the other hand, legislative and automotive carmakers expect many years of development and trials. This presentation shows how Ducktrain tries to be a puzzle piece and how it approaches the urban logistic challenge.

On a Tuesday evening a month we welcome all those interested in innovation and innovation management online via Zoom or at the INC Invention Center at the RWTH Aachen Campus. We are looking for exciting discussions with speakers from business and science as well as other participants from the region of Aachen on various aspects of the topic of technology and innovation management. All events are held in English to promote the exchange even beyond the national border and involve the students of RWTH Business School.
