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

Leading experts and companies in implementing supply chain and logistics innovation form ALICE aiming at transitioning in an affordable way towards Zero Emissions transport & logistics operations.

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

ALICE is based on the recognition of the need for an overarching view on logistics and supply chain planning and control, in which shippers and logistics service providers closely collaborate to reach efficient logistics and supply chain operations.


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.
