Transportation and Logistics is a complex industry gathering a broad eco-system and community of stakeholders.
With the advent of digitalization and new technologies, sharing and accessing efficient, time- and cost-effective information, know-how, innovations, solutions & services, best practices, experts, advice... has become either a challenge or a major success factor for companies conducting cross-border operations on a global level.
Still in its inception phase, the Global Cargo Forum is a startup developing a new portal initiative and collaborative B2B exchange platform for all organisations (public and private).
It will soon provide a set of services aiming at promoting and supporting initially the Air Cargo Industry then quickly extending to the Global Cargo Community.
Please note that the B2B portal and members area including the portal services will only be available from January 2019.

Further information and updates will be published in June
It all started with an idea in September 2015 when we highlighted the need to develop new services and portal to better support the Industry.
Being all quite busy managing our day to day jobs and activities, it took a while before we could focus on the Business Concept Definition and other key startup milestones.
We are now on our way to our first mission that will be to ease the access and sharing of key information, know-how, innovations, solutions & services, best practices, experts, advice, digital transformation... usually found accross mutliple websites and sources. We expect to release a first Portal Service around October followed by others on a regular basis.
Then, progressively, we plan to design our own set of solutions, services and events in order to better support the Community.
Located in the heart of Europe, Luxembourg's open, innovative and export-driven economy provides global companies with many strategic advantages for conducting their business succesfully to, in and from Europe.
Over the last decades, Luxembourg has continuously improved its positioning as an intercontinental and multimodal logistics hub in Europe for value-added logistics activities (e.g. 3PL and 4PL). The country has implemented a multi-product specialisation strategy within its logistic sector focusing on certain types of products that require specific handling and/or storage solutions. The Luxembourg logistics hub has notably been reinforced with the establishment of a dedicated handling centre for healthcare and pharmaceutical products and a highly secured Freeport for valuable goods at the Luxembourg airport. Today, all these efforts are paying off and are recognised worldwide as Luxembourg ranks N°2 in the World Bank Logistics Performance index 2016.
What makes Luxembourg stand out is the fact that it combines a unique series of assets (see more...)
Digitalisation and new technological developments, such as 3D printing, the Internet of Things, predictive analytics, automation, robotics and artificial intelligence, are expected to reshape processes along the entire logistics value chain from contract logistics and warehouse management to end-to-end traceability and last-mile delivery. Luxembourg is well aware of these future challenges. Logistics companies established here can benefit from tailored-made research, development and innovation support schemes as well as from an environment where it is easy to find the right collaboration partners. The country's size, agility and determination to be on the cutting edge of new technological advances makes it a perfect "living lab" for testing innovative solution in a real environment
