DigiLog 2023 seminar shared common experiences on North-South transport eCorridor

The first DigiLog 2023 seminar took place in Helsinki 19.1.2023. The seminar was organized in the traditional birthplace of visions – the Botta ballroom, which offered a very nice atmosphere and good facilities for such an event.
Event was hosted by ITS Finland and CaaS Nordic associations with partners Fintraffic, LIMOWA and LOGY.

The seminar brought together authorities and companies from several countries, who share the same interest: intensifying our shared logistics system to meet all sustainability targets with the use of enabling digital services. To give food for thought the organizers gathered for the audience a heavy package of excellent speakers with hot and very current topics. For all presentations the red thread was digitalisation, sustainability and the changed operational environment in North-East logistics.
