What is You've Got Freight!?
(subtitles are included)
Description of the game
In You’ve Got Freight! players assume the role of a logistics service provider who is responsible to transport containers from a seaport to a hinterland destination, through a network with multiple origins, destinations, transport modes and intermodal terminals. During the game, players individually and collectively experience the opportunities and benefits of synchromodal transport.
Central elements in the game include varying costs and speeds of 3 modes of transport, the use of dynamic and flexible shipment planning and (un-)bundling possibilities at terminals. Players are challenged in multiple rounds to exploit the trade-off between benefits of collaboration and individual profits. During the game, they become aware of essential supporting aspects of synchromodal transport, such as trust, data sharing, negotiation and compensation. Eventually, group solutions can be found with a higher performance for all, compared to solutions developed in isolation.
The game is best played by 4 teams of 2 players, per board (game sets come with 2 boards). A game session can take up to several hours for multiple rounds. Importantly, we offer digital monitoring and support, as well as a pre- and post-game briefing of participants, to enhance the learning experience.

You've Got Freight & Synchromodality
The transported number of goods has grown a great deal over the last decades leading to new challenges in the transportation sector. The transportation sector is faced with stricter emission regulation next to growing demands from the consumers in delivery time. The use of different modalities combined in one network to transport goods in an efficient, sustainable and flexible fashion through synchromodality is the way forward. The many different parties that are involved in the transport sector with conflicting interest make it a complex problem to solve.
In order to make synchromodality viable the different parties involved in the transportation sector need to work together. To create a deeper insight in the complex issues behind synchromodality we created the serious game You’ve Got Freight! Serious gaming has been used for years for educational purposes and to create awareness.
