On the move with iMove

There is a complex story behind each package delivered to your door, every product stocked on a store shelf, and each piece of building material used in construction, and experts from The University of Queensland’s Australian Institute of Business and Economics are working to uncover it.

For each item to reach its destination, it must be shipped, stored, driven, railed or flown from the producer to its new home.

But the details of this journey are often unclear to all industry participants and this can impact on overall transport network efficiency.

For instance, items can encounter delays in warehouses, two trucks with half-loads heading to the same destination may not coordinate, and information on shipment delays is not always passed on to the drivers assigned to pick their cargo.
