The RMIT Enabling Capability Platforms (ECPs) kicked off their ECP Post COVID-19 Restart Strategy on 28 May 2020 with an online "Conversations on the Future of Transport and Logistics". The event was organised in conjunction with the RMIT Global Transport and Logistics Research Group and was led by Assoc. Prof. Victor Gekara with the support of Prof. Anne-Laure Mention, Global Business Innovation ECP Director. The event was the first of a series of events bringing industry and academia together to consider post COVID-19 recovery efforts and strategies.
A line up of external speakers were on hand to share how COVID-19 has impacted businesses within the transport and logistics sector, new technologies likely to change in the future post COVID-19 and what strategies businesses can adopt to build more operational resilience in the face of similar disruptions.
The panellists were:
- Mr Jonathan Bolton - General Manager consumer and retail, DHL – Victoria
- Mr Dave Coughlin - Branch manager, Mainfreight – Tullamarine
- Mr Nicholas O'Connell - Operations Production Manager, DP-World – Melbourne
Speakers also discussed ways for RMIT researchers to collaborate with industry and government in post COVID-19 recovery efforts.
