        Delivering the goods: Harnessing technology to drive the transport of the future

        A technology revolution is upon us, but what does this mean for the world of transport? Technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Big Data Analytics, Blockchain and Electrical Energy and Storage have the potential to transform the sector, but what challenges do businesses face in adopting these technologies?

        How quickly will technologies be adopted and what will the impact be on those sectors that are fundamentally reliant on moving goods, such as: logistics, retail, manufacturing, construction and energy?

        We conducted extensive research to assess how Artificial Intelligence, Big Data Analytics, Blockchain and Electrification are transforming the transport sector. We examined the views of 250 CEOs, CTOs and CLOs from Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, Asia Pacific and North America, incorporating perspectives from industry leaders and innovators, as well as legal perspectives from our own experts in Italy, Germany, UK and UAE.

        Key areas of the report include:
         
        • AI at play: The benefits of using artificial intelligence in transport are clear, but can it live up to the hype?

        • Big data, big opportunities: The adoption of data analytics has grown exponentially, but concerns over security and privacy remain.

        • The Block-chain game changer: This nascent technology could change the face of commercial transport, but only once its full potential is unlocked.

        • Power Shift: With the advancement of electric vehicle fleets and the development of electric roads, is this the end for fossil fuels?
