20 Mar ‘Personal service: how crowdsourcing the Physical Internet in your neighbourhood can be considered smart mobility innovation’, an article by STA Chairman José F. Papí

Logistics require centralised planning and thinking. There is much research focusing on learning from ant colony and beehive analysis in order to create learning systems for logistics operations. But there is a limit on how much we can learn from ants and bees. Might it not be better to design systems to help people interact better and smarter? This is the philosophy behind crowd-sourced logistics.

In this article, included in the InterConnected magazine distributed during the last edition of the world’s leading fair on traffic and mobility, Intertraffic Amsterdam, STA Chairman José F. Papí discusses the potential benefits of innovative crowdsourced logistics solutions.
