What if we built a physical internet? An open and decentralized peer to peer network for physical goods production and distribution? They are building it.
Logistics and transports inside cities and between cities are too much designed in silos. We lose everyday huge resources, time, work, energy and money by not sharing common infrastructures. And moreover in the context of global warming where transports emits so much greenhouse gases. We can do better if we collaborate. As we did for the World Wide Web, we need to agree on standards and protocols to reduce the costs of integration and implementation. But contrary to the web, we need to consider lot more real world friction, these are not bits, these are physical goods! But as the logistics industry has a strong history of building standards, with the shipping containers, the barcode and much more, this  industry can think for the future, for the best of all. In this session, we will receive transporters and logisticians, industrials and researchers who are working to build this technical and business collaboration framework, and how they invest on open APIs to fulill the promise.
