UK5G launches resource hub for the transport and logistics sector

Posted on: 01/11/2021

UK5G's new hub offers practical advice and guidance, as well as inspiration on the adoption of 5G technologies for the transport and logistics sectors.

A practical 5G guide for the transport and logistics industry

Be it by rail, road, sea, inland waterways, pipe or air, the transport and logistics sector is at the heart of keeping the UK moving, physically and fiscally.  The transit of people and goods in a post-Covid, post-Brexit world is more complex than ever before, with evolving consumer demands and behaviours, rising costs and shrinking margins. Moreover, the sector needs to address its status as one of the UK’s largest emitters of greenhouse gases.

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 new online resource from UK5G is designed to help transport and logistics organisations, of all types and sizes, find the right resources and connections to map a path to 5G. It highlights how by adopting 5G, organisations can embrace added efficiency, flexibility, resiliency and security, to drive the sector forward, empower people, and put our planet first in today’s increasingly digital world.

Visit this resource hub to explore the benefits of 5G, including:

  • unprecedented insights for smarter operations,
  • supporting safer and more efficient travel across land, sea and air,
  • reducing environmental impacts,
  • futureproofing transport and logistics,
  • increasing security and resilience,
  • improving connectivity with a single, scalable, dynamic network,

Webinar series

What’s more, a dedicated online event series will provide the opportunity to hear directly from those who have been there, done that, and learned the lessons that others can benefit from.  Upcoming 5G in Transport & Logistics events include:
