New AWARD survey on automated road transport logistics business aspects
AWARD aims to develop systems for “All Weather Autonomous Real logistics operations and Demonstrations“. Currently, we are studying the business aspects related to autonomous logistics operations and need your feedback!
The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
Autonomous logistics systems are going to disrupt the road transport industry introducing new innovative business models. The goal of this survey is to understand and gain detailed insights into the different business aspects before developing the AWARD’s Business Models. We are interested in the opinion of stakeholders related to road transport, industrial environments, ports, airports and other experts.
