The aim of the project is to enable operations with developed iso-modular logistics units of size adequate for real modal and co-modal flows of fast-moving consumer goods.
The objective is to achieve the first genuine contribution to the development of intercontinental logistics at the European level, in close coordination with North America partners and the international Physical Internet Initiative. The goal of the project is to enable operations with developed iso-modular logistics units of size adequate for real modal and co-modal flows of fast-moving consumer goods, providing a basis for an interconnected logistics system for 2030.
The Transport and Mobility Laboratory will conduct two specifics tasks during this project:
- Develop a common methodology for measuring Key Performance Indicators (KPI), coupled with an easily used modeling framework, of solutions for operational interconnectivity in Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG).
- Design robust collaborative scheduling and routing schemes for interconnected logistics.
