PIE Mapping: Shaping the Future of Freight Transport in the UK

PIE Mapping are very pleased to be invited as thought leaders on the future of the freight industry. 

Innovate UK are sponsoring the “Future Transport Innovations Workshop: What will logistics & freight look like in 2035?” taking place on Monday the 8th of June in London.

The workshop will focus on the results and findings of research being undertaken by RAND Europe, Risk Solutions and the Texas Transport Institute looking into plausible transport futures for the freight industry to achieve, in conjunction with the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport’s (CILT) Vision 2035, by 2035.

The research aims to identify technologies and innovations that will be valuable in the journey towards increasing freight transport efficiency and reducing congestion and to identify key policies and investments that can support these aims.

The research dissected the future of freight transport innovation into three streams; Specific Factors – areas that are likely to have a specific impact on freight transportation, Common Factors – areas that may impact all areas of transport; including freight, and Technologies – that may impact the future of the freight transport industry.

PIE Mapping are at the forefront of advances in the field of freight journey planning and were the official freight transport partners of the London Olympic Games in 2012. We have since worked with TfL, the Canary Wharf Group and many other agencies to develop integrated freight journey planning systems that are suitable for a modern UK & London.

Due to its success, our work has been getting a lot of publicity lately, notably in The Times, the Register and with our CEO, Freddie Talberg appearing on Radio 5Live’s Technology programme.

As a result of our expertise in the field we were proud to be asked to speak at the Future Transport Innovations Workshop on Monday to share our knowledge in the area of the impact of technology on the future of the freight transport industry.
