Advance the development of UCA by identifying the opinion of shippers about UCA – Presented by Nathalie Koopman, University of Twente at the Cargo Innovation Conference, which takes place on June 14, 2017, at Maaspoort, Venlo, The Netherlands.
During this presentation, I will tell you more about my bachelor graduation assignment by presenting the first results of the first survey. The first survey that is conducted is about the current transportation needs and the transportation barriers that shippers may experience. Furthermore, I will also tell something about the second survey that will be conducted. The surveys that will be conducted are used to answer the research question of my bachelor graduation assignment is: What is the opinion of the members of the shipper’s councils about the possibilities and the limitations of UCA to fulfil their future transportation needs?
