Policy Dialogue
Innovation and technological disruption - What does the future hold for the transport and logistics workforce?

Thursday, 12 September 2019

Although employment in transport and logistics is on the rise in Europe, technological innovation is set to radically shape the industry with up to 90% of existing jobs at risk of automation. Given the low educational attainment of the workforce - over 25% having less than primary and lower secondary education - upskilling and adapting to technologically intensive jobs represents a hard nut to crack, which Europe must address. The aim of this Policy Dialogue is to identify the most disruptive technologies in the transport and logistics industry and discuss how they are affecting workers’ job prospects and conditions, as well as what skills will be required in the future.

Speakers included: Maja Bakran Marcich, Deputy Director-General, Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport, European Commission; Livia Spera, Acting General Secretary, European Transport Workers’ Federation; Tiago Fonseca, Technical Officer, World Maritime University and Nikolaos Tsampieris, Senior Project Manager, ERTICO. The event was moderated by Claire Dhéret, Head of Programme, Social Europe & Well-being programme, European Policy Centre.
