Many events take place in these types of meetings. These are, for example, conferences, discussion panels, or lectures. During the three-day meetings, the program was varied, and other issues were raised. Multimodal UK 2019 began with a discussion that aimed to provide answers to the questions: why is the logistics industry vulnerable to disruption? What will the future look like?
