The Innovation in Freight Conference will take place on 18 June 2019 in Munich, and will cluster the results of seven projects (ARCC, FR8RAIL, FR8HUB, SMART, FFL4E, M2O, INNOWAG) running under Shift2Rail’s freight innovation programme, known as IP5. A wide spectrum of freight-related topics will be covered, ranging from new locomotive designs, longer and heavier trains, real time management of main lines and yards, intelligent freight wagon concepts, and automation and digitalisation of terminals to name but a few.
For four of the projects coming to a close, the conference will represent their final dissemination event (INNOWAG, SMART, FR8RAIL and FFL4E). All projects have a common vision aiming at increasing the performance of the rail freight system by bringing value to customers, operators, the environment and society.
Participants of the Innovation in Freight Conference will also get a discounted entry to the SmartRail 2019 conference, taking place during the same period in Munich (25% discount for industry representatives, and 40% discount for government and academic participants).
The number of places available at the Innovation in Freight Conference are limited.
