For the second year in a row, Transmetrics participated in 3PL Summit & Chief Supply Chain Officer Forum, an annual meeting of the leading C-Level 3PL executives organized by EFT, which took place in Venlo, The Netherlands. According to the organizers, over 400 senior supply chain and logistics executives attend the event each year.
As always, a wide array of topics was discussed at the forum. Joeri Kuik (DHL Global Forwarding) and Jean-Yves Gras (Bolloré Logistics) emphasized the value of data and predictive analytics for the road, air and sea logistics providers. Martijn Siebrand (TKI DINALOG) and Frank Salliau (Mentat-IT) gave a crash course on blockchain and Machine Learning respectively, and how these technologies can be applied for Logistics. And, of course, the audience heard from a number of young companies like QuiCargo and Cargonexx who are trying to make the transport and logistics industry more efficient.
One of the highlights of the event was the presentation delivered by Frank Salliau (Mentat-IT) and Sven Verstrepen (Ahlers), which mentioned Transmetrics as the example of an innovative predictive analytics and AI solution for the Logistics Industry.
