The European Technology Platform ALICE is set-up to develop and implement a comprehensive industry lead strategy for research, innovation and market deployment in the field of logistics and supply chain management in Europe.

Leading experts and companies in implementing supply chain and logistics innovation form ALICE with the aim to accelerate the transition to net zero emissions transport & logistics operations. To that end, interdisciplinary and multi-stakeholder collaborative innovation is needed.

ALICE supports, assists and advise the European Commission in the implementation of the EU Programs for research: Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe.

Vision

Future logistics, from global to urban, will be founded on a global open system of systems enabling assets and resources in logistics networks to be interconnected facilitating their use to the maximum capacity and productivity while increasing agility and resilience of supply chains. We call this vision the Physical Internet (PI) and it will support the affordable transition of assets towards Zero emissions logistics.
