Taking stock of cargo transport’s warehouse needs
Imagine an Airbnb-type of warehouse and storage space option. It’s an emerging model aimed at meeting the growing need of e-commerce and cargo transport. Currently, warehouses and storage spaces are reachable only through personal contacts. The EU-funded WarehouseBook project aims to reverse this trend. It will create an online database where logistics planners can book a warehouse for transporters to deliver their goods. The database will feature warehouses, listing their offer and type. It will also allow the cargo companies to rent a warehouse where the driver can unload the cargo. Coordinated by Slovenia’s IDL Logistika, the project will bring more than 10 000 EU warehouses and transport providers together.
