Federated architecture for data sharing. FENIX & ALICE together at TRA 2022, 14th-17th November, Lisbon

Friday, November 4th, 2022


“FENIX facilitates networking and the collaboration among its platforms. From a digitalisation point of view, FENIX goes where no one has gone before and tackles the fragmentation that currently exists in the field of transport and logistics. Connectivity among platforms within the FENIX federation of platforms makes visualising shipping details easier and enhances the coordination of the different steps along the supply chain.” Dr. Eusebiu Catana, FENIX Project coordinator

The FENIX project aims at developing the first European federated architecture to serve the European logistics community of shippers, logistics service providers, mobility infrastructure providers, cities, and authorities. These actors require a common system for data sharing and enhancement of interoperability for any individual existing and future platform.

FENIX was conceived as a concretisation of the European Commission’s Digital Transport and Logistic Forum (DTLF) recommendations that aimed to create a viable and valid federative network of platforms as enabler for Business to Administration (B2A) and Business to Business (B2B) data exchange and sharing by transport and logistics operators.


The main objectives the FENIX Consortium has been working to achieve are:

  • establishing a federated network of transport and logistics actors across Europe
  • demonstrating the operational feasibility and benefits of interoperability
  • setting up the EU corridor community building programme by promoting FENIX’s benefits

FENIX involves 11 pilot sites on 9 TEN-T corridors and a total of 45 beneficiaries. The project seeks to support the transition to seamless data sharing, initially testing its features in the selected pilot sites. One of the main implementing points of FENIX is the standardisation and digitalisation of data exchange.

FENIX architecture rely upon a decentralised approach, where each participant and platform are considered nodes of the network. This means each party has internal control and is able to interoperate with all the other parties. FENIX is composed of platforms, data assets and services, which are made available for secured consumption or sharing via the federated network.

FENIX at TRA 2022

At TRA 2022 in Lisbon, FENIX will showcase its federated architecture for data sharing in a series of events including presentations at the ALICE booth on the following days:

  • 15th and 16th November (presentation is available here)
  • Wednesday 16th November from 17-18:30 for a special presentation (this session will give an overview of 4 different pilots models tested by the project)
