Scenario Discontinuity Analysis: Cargo and Package Delivery August 2017
About This Report
How will cargo- and package-delivery services integrate new technologies such as artificial intelligence, driverless vehicles, human-augmentation solutions, and advanced robots? Will there be end-to-end, fully-automated services that take cargo from port to person? To what extent will human-augmentation technologies, robot taxes, anti-robot sentiment, and other factors help keep human-based–logistics labor competitive? This Scenario Discontinuity Analysis addresses these and many other key issues that could have a major impact on where cargo and package delivery fits within the driverless future.
