Meeting Date:     10 May 2017

Meeting Venue:  Transport & Logistics, Messe München “Schuhbecks am Turm room“, Entrance East

Time:                      12 :00 to 14 :00

Digitization of transport and logistics enabled by IT connectivity and community platforms are a major driver for connecting the fragmented and manifold actors within transport and logistics. Data sharing, co-operative freight planning, end-to-end visibility are key contributors towards optimised and predictive supply chain planning. CLUSTERS 2.0 (Networked and Efficient Logistics Clusters) and AEOLIX (Architecture for European logistics Information Exchange) are two European research projects that focus on concepts and solutions designed to make the European transport system more efficient, sustainable, collaborative and interconnected. The event will address approaches and practices from supply chain management, information technology and cities presented by PTV Group, Procter&Gamble, Nallian, Logistik-Initiative Hamburg, T-System and the European Technology platform ALICE. These include:

  • CLUSTER 2.0, a European clustering and community initiative for logistics
  • IT solutions for building community, inter-operability and trusted data sharing
  • CargoStream: The independent pan-European platform for synchromodal freight planning
  • Digital connectivity and data sharing in port city areas
  • Establishing innovation in European transport logistics research
