Expanding to the Last Mile | Paola Daddato, Flibco.com
Paola Daddato, Innovation and Digital Marketing Lead at Flibco.com kicked off Part 2 by walking us through Flibco.com’s decision to not only tackle but solve the “last mile problem” in airport transportation. Paola showed us how Flibco.com’s door2gate solution works and why fact driven decisions allowed them to understand exactly where and when to restart services post COVID-19 lockdown.
The Future of Intermodality | Paolo Beria, TRASPOL, Politecnico di Milano
Paolo Beria, Associate Professor of Transport Economics, TRASPOL, Politecnico di Milano takes us through a wide range of topics about the opportunities and threats of intermodality in the bus and coach market.
Accordingly, Paolo discusses six goals and strategies of embracing intermodality. These include enriching the product offered (such as last mile services), extending the network, increasing passengers, increasing turnover and profits, reducing production costs and finally to prevent competition. All in all, Paolo’s research will push you to think about how intermodality just might be a new business avenue for your bus company.
