In 2050 75 % of the global population will live in cities and the planet will have 37 megacities, each with a population of more than 10 million inhabitants. Transportation needs, for business or pleasure, are intensifying due to the fast growth of urban areas. This context and the development of digital technology highlight the need to take a fresh look at traditional forms of transportation and the ways in which to respond to new requirements.

The survey reveals that even if digital transformation is already under way and seen as fundamental to the upheavals caused by the health crisis, it is not yet a reality in all organisations. However, it is seen as a motivating perspective, a necessary adjustment, and a source of benefits for all stakeholders, including employees. While the health crisis is reshuffling the cards in many sectors, bringing to the fore those that have managed to get digitalised early and adapt fast, it is time for organisations to look at the opportunities and obstacles that this digital acceleration brings. For Inetum, it shows the urgency of harnessing digital flow to make it a real driver of the impact that organisations can have on the economy and on society.
