Keynote: Richard van Hooijdonk

Trendwatcher, futurist and international keynote speaker Richard van Hooijdonk takes you to an inspiring future that will dramatically change the way we live, work and do business.

What does logistics look like in the world of automatic traffic flows? How do algorithms and the Internet of Things ensure a fully automated supply chain? And what is the impact of new production technologies like 3D printing?
The future of logistics and transport offers solutions to many of the challenges we face today.

Technology causes acceleration in transport and logistics. In the future, self-driving systems will drive through the city ‘like trains’, drones will control transport from the airport and we will all have
a self-driving car that effortlessly takes us from A to B. Logistics technology will have a significant impact on production chains and 3D printers will create unprecedented disruption in the supply chain.
Logistics and transportation are ready for these changes. Are you?
