AWARD workshop #1

Automation in Freight Transport & Logistics User requirements Workshop

Organised by IRU and AIT on the 2nd of June 2021

At its first interactive workshop, AWARD’s vision and current status of novel automated transport logistics will be presented to a group of experts from public authorities, industry and representative bodies. During this workshop, requirements from different stakeholder perspectives will be discussed and refined.

Discussions will take place on the state of the art, current project findings and challenges related to the project’s four use cases:


Automated goods handling within the logistics hub


Hub-to-hub transport on public roads


Automated transport for airport baggage handling



Automated trailer transfer with port terminal systems

The inputs will be used and included in the AWARD stakeholder and user requirements report that is planned to be submitted to the European Commission in September 2021.

This workshop is a closed event with a limited number of participants. The workshop participants will consist of experts in the field of autonomous logistics. Please contact us if you are interested in this workshop and its results: info@award-h2020.eu.
