Key topics discussed in Dubai
The effect of automation, artificial intelligence and digitalisation were the key topics at this week's Cargo Connect conference at the Dubai Airshow 2019 (UAE). Portfolio director Rachel Sturgess: "The conference provided real opportunities for industry networking, with thought leaders offering fascinating technology insights."
Speakers including Dennis Lister, VP cargo commercial development, Emirates SkyCargo, discussed the impact of the three key topics on the future of cargo and freight. They were also delighted by an autonomous delivery device known as "Roxo", exhibited by headline sponsors Fedex Express.
Created in collaboration with DEKA research and development, it will be an important part of Fedex' ecosystem and serves as a demonstration of the company's goal to connect people and possibilities. (ah)
