F&L Innovation Forum takes inspiration from innovation to generate practical and concrete solutions to critical freight and logistics challenges. Experts, leading practitioners, innovators, start-ups and scale-ups look across the supply chain.
Creating value by optimising port & hinterland ecosystems
Multimodal stakeholders and ports are creating value for port users & other stakeholders by working together to minimise environmental impact & synchronise end-to-end supply chains. With customer service levels to meet and port infrastructure currently bursting at the seams, ports, innovators and shippers explain how they are creating value with environmental impact and hinterland connectivity strategies.

Lifting the fog: experts & practitioners put hydrogen into perspective for the freight & logistics sector
All modes, Europe 1-2 years focus – how might hydrogen be part of the fuel mix for freight & logistics? Concrete examples. Who is doing what, and next steps? Infrastructure and distribution of hydrogen, hydrogen myths, and challenges for today and tomorrow including retrofitting vs new fleet costs.
Refuelling our fleets. Reducing CO2 in European road transport (4 of 4)
A concrete action list & summary of all discussions:
Smart planning & smart operations. Reducing CO2 in European road transport (2 of 4).
Practical solutions to bring you results in the short term, with a focus on short term profitability and service benefits from reduced carbon emissions. Topics included smart operations, less air, multimodal, bundling, loading and routing. Impact on emissions can be 20%.
Contacts & slides in members’ area
The baseline: measuring, allocating & calculating CO2 in European road transport (1 of 4).
Challenging questions included can innovative solutions for CO2 reduction be reflected in our existing CO2 frameworks? How detailed and specific should insight in our CO2 footprints be, to work on stepwise improvements? Are we likely to end up with a single CO₂ accounting standard we should follow, or multiple options? What tools / principles should a shipper aim to use to get set up for understanding, measuring & communicating CO₂? Can progress be incremental or does it have to be a “big bang” solution? What CO₂ statistic will get my executive Board’s attention? How do I find & measure that statistic?
