Ensuring the seamless flow of people and goods around the world has never been more important. The transportation industry is the physical glue of value chains and plays a vital part for all industries. This is also true even in the digital world where many services end up having tangible products. Organizations are facing unprecedented change from globalization and digital transformation, combined with sustainability high on every management team’s agenda.
Many challenges have been around for ages, but still remain in the industry; continuous change of consumption patterns alters transportation needs, increased demands for NOX reductions, the customers wish for instant delivery, and introduction of new sources of energy production create new transportation possibilities.
The increased demand for cost and energy efficiency in transportation, renewable energy growth and electrification will decrease emissions substantially, but will it be enough? In Amrop we believe introduction of alternative sources of energy, such as green H2 and eFuels, will be on the list of important discussions to be taken for many management groups in the years to come.
