Interview with Nuri Morava

Question 1: What drives you?
Enabling, new, better and more sustainable logistics solutions through innovative technologies.

Question 2: Why should the delegate attend your presentation?
If you want to understand how drones become part of logistics and an integrated function of supply chains you shouldn’t miss our presentation.

Question 3: What emerging technologies/trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?
Looking at trends, ever emerging e-commerce with short lead-times is a huge driver for fast delivery vehicles. Of course the demand for carbon-neutral transportation represents a driver for new ways of transport as well. In a short run better battery technology is a driver to provide alternatives to today’s fleets and vehicles.

Question 4: What kind of impact do you expect them to have?
I expect a fundamental change in transportation and logistics networks.

Question 5: What are the barriers that might stand in the way?
Regulation and prejudices are two fields that might slow down new ways of transportation and that have to be addressed.
