MSC R&D is attending Multimodal 2018 at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham from the 1st to 3rd May to review the latest trends and developments in the transport and logistics industry.
The UK logistics and posts sector is worth approximately £55bn to the economy and comprises 5% of the UK GDP. Currently 1.7 million people are employed in this sector by over 63,000 companies.
The top five trends in the transport logistics industry in 2018 focus on heightened security, warehouse robotics, rail freight, autonomous road transportation and the power of e-commerce.
Decarbonising transport is one of the most compelling motives for innovation in transport. An electrical engine used in helicopters allows energy consumption to be optimised depending on whether the helicopter is taking off, flying or landing. With solar cells on the wheels that send renewable energy directly to the battery, the solar-powered electric bike on a full charge, can go up to 30 mph.
With extensive technical knowledge in the transport and logistics industry, MSC R&D can support your business in obtaining grants for innovations. To find out more about available UK and EU funding opportunities, contact us today!
