Connected World Transforming Travel,  Transportation and  Supply Chains

The World Economic Forum and The Boston Consulting Group have developed scenarios that provide an industry perspective on how the travel and transportation ecosystem can transform to meet changing customer needs as well as new mobility frontiers and technological developments by 2025 and beyond.

View videos of four game-changing solutions have will revolutionize travel and transportation by 2025:

IPITA: Integrated proactive intermodal travel assistant
COMET: Condition based megacity traffic management
ACIS: Fully automated check-in, security and border control
TATLO: Tracking- and transparency- based logistics optimizer

  • Successful players need to take advantage of new opportunities associated with hyperconnectivity, such as big data analytics, while managing risks through data privacy rules and cyber security measures
