Kalmar has launched a new video to depict what the sustainable future of cargo handling will look like in 2060.

The video revealed that Kalmar expects that in 2060, the world will have plenty of clean energy, limited natural resources and services will be more personalised and efficient. The most precious commodity, it said, will be data, which will be integrated into our lives.

“Data has fundamentally changed the way the world trade operates,” said the video, “making it more efficient, safe and sustainable.” Subsequently, people will one day live in smart cities that are part of a global ecosystem where consumer demand drives the logistics and cargo handling industry.

Frank Kho, vice president of market intelligence, strategy and development and a member of the Port 2060 Think Tank, speculated: “In 2060, we believe that services will be more personalised and efficient. Specialised items, such as your favourite blend of coffee, will be able to be ordered directly from a local producer.”

Goods will be moved rapidly around the world in smart containers that know their contents and destination, he said, and everything will be automated and highly efficient.
