The global Covid pandemic has meant that the skies may be quieter for the time being, but that will change. In addition to manned flight, there’s a lot of interest in drones (UAVs) across sectors including in logistics. Some estimates put 76,000 of these connected flying vehicles in the skies by 2030. 5G provides the capabilities and capacity to power the high density/ultra low latency systems that future flight requires.

About the Events

By rail, road, sea, inland waterways or air, the transport and logistics sectors are the linchpins that keep the UK moving. As an island nation, the movement of goods is critical to our economy, with imports and exports worth £48bn and £51bn annually, respectively. Moving people in 2019 clocked up 873 billion passenger kilometres. These figures have taken a knock in the wake of the pandemic and with the sectors’ return to pre-pandemic levels comes a considerable set of challenges. The post-COVID, post-Brexit world is ever more complex, with shifting consumer demands and behaviours, rising costs and shrinking margins. Add to this, the sectors’ need to address its status as the UK’s largest emitter of greenhouse gases (prior to the pandemic).

To succeed and thrive, organisations need to become more resilient, agile and productive. 5G – and the digital technologies it powers – can be the key to unlocking a more efficient, sustainable future for transport and logistics.

This series of events will explore where 5G is making a difference in Transport & Logistics.
