Shipping News Feature ITALY – With the increased development of unmanned and autonomous freight modes prompting constant discussions about a technology which seemingly grows on a week to week basis, members of the international logistics Industry and supply chain will no doubt be interested in the upcoming Unmanned Cargo Aircraft (UCA) Conference, which will be taking place at Rivalta di Torino in Italy on November 23.

The conference will be hosted by power systems manufacturer Avio Aero and supported by Platform Unmanned Cargo Aircraft and aims to bring together manufacturers, operators, knowledge institutes, consultants and government organizations in the upcoming field of unmanned cargo aircraft.

Speakers at the event will introduce UCA development projects and potential applications, with topics to be covered including:

  • UCA business models: how to earn money with UCA?
  • UCA configurations: what could – and should – UCA look like?
  • Regulation: where are UCA allowed to fly, and under which conditions?
  • Societal benefits: what can UCA contribute to economic and social development?
  • Industrial participation: how can UCA contribute to innovation and what opportunities do they generate for new enterprises?
