The Logistics Cluster Global Meeting
21 October 2020 to 22 October 2020

This year the Logistics Cluster Global Meeting was for the first time undertaken online. This opportunity enabled the meeting to be opened to a wider audience and extended to two days of sessions. We welcomed more than 300 participants, a significantly expanded audience including regulars and new-comers, who were able to join us online for the first time. The meeting agenda was developed based on feedback from previous meetings and new ideas and delivery modalities originating from the current opportunities and challenges concerning Covid. This NfR is organised to reflect the discussions as they took place during the 2020 online Global Meeting and aims to summarise the key discussion points. Additional meeting documents including session recordings and survey results.
