Democratization of logistics and future trade is here!

How can we give people what they need, where and when they need it, before they themselves become aware of their need?

Welcome to an exciting e-commerce seminar where we can listen to Mats Lewan’s future track of e-commerce, and Sara Ali from Logtrade talk about the logistics industry’s disruption. The Internet moves into the physical world, which means that you no longer need to go to a website to shop. It will be drones, loL, robot project, AI and an incredible amount of e-commerce – of course.

In addition, we will see a number of e-commerce cases from the Science Park’s accelerator program pitching their companies.

The network meeting is on June 4th at Science Park in Jönköping. We start at 4.30 pm and will be done at around 18.45.

Welcome!

Self-propelled trucks in Jönköping

Logistikföretaget UPS meddelade i slutet av förra veckan att de inlett drönarleveranser i USA. Ett land där man tidigare varit ganska skeptiska till kommersiella flygande drönare och Amazon har exempelvis valt Storbritannien för sina tester med drönare.

The Gothenburg company Einride’s self-driving T-pod trucks will now take public roads in Jönköping. However, the area is limited to the distance between DB Schenker’s terminal and the warehouse on Skruvgatan.

The maximum speed is initially set to seven kilometers per hour. The truck can be controlled from a control room in Borås, but for safety reasons there’s always a person near the vehicle.

Einride and DB Schenker commenced their cooperation in April 2018 and have an agreement for a pilot installation with option for several installations for DB Schenker globally. The truck will be an economical choice considering both personnel and the environment.

“By replacing diesel with electricity, carbon dioxide emissions are reduced by 90 percent,” said Robert Falck, CEO and founder of Einride to JP in November.

E-commerce (eCommerce) is in a strong growth phase, where net sales continue to increase. The strong growth in e-commerce globally and nationally also applies in Jönköping.

The starting point for development of e-commerce in Jönköping is a feasibility study which Jönköping Municipality and Jönköping’s Enterprise Association made in 2015. The preliminary study aimed to analyze Jönköping’s prospects of strengthening its position in e-commerce within functions related to e-commerce and especially logistics.

Thereafter, Science Park together with Seekly AB in 2016 produced an in-depth report that highlights the conditions for e-commerce development in Jönköping. The report describes:

– evolution of e-commerce in general
– investments in e-commerce in some other municipalities in Sweden
– Jönköping Region’s prerequisites for developing e-commerce.

Finally, suggestions are made on how e-commerce in Jönköping can be developed. The report “E-commerce in Jönköping” can be read in its entirety in Swedish, here: https://www.jonkoping.se/download/18.474c32c915842ed3c423c5/1478701885284/Rapport%20-%20Nya%20affa%CC%88rer%20och%20affa%CC%88rsmodeller%20inom%20Digitalisering.pdf
