The ambition of this Roadmap is the achievement of EU wide co-modal transport services within a well synchronized, smart and seamless network, supported by corridors and hubs, providing optimal support to supply chains. It involves a step change from the current system, towards the ultimate vision of the Physical Internet, by synchronizing intermodal services between modes and with shippers with different speeds and leadtimes, (referred to as Synchromodality), aligning equipment and services on corridors and hubs and integrating these into networks.
So far, network integration has been focused on interconnectivity and interoperability of transport processes and equipment. Integration has been achieved only partially at the TEN-T core network level, without alignment of hubs and corridors specifically for freight transport. There is a poor match between requirements of door-to-door freight services within Europe and the supporting pan-European infrastructure. In addition, important dynamic qualities of the transport system such as flexibility, resilience and responsiveness are still underdeveloped. Thirdly, integration has not been achieved in the vertical sense, aligning transport services with supply chain requirements of manufacturers, distributors and the wholesale sector. Freight services are, therefore, insufficiently customer-oriented to serve increasingly diverse client’s needs.

Digital technologies such as Digital Twins, Internet of Things (IoT), Automated Transport, 5G, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Blockchain have enabled innovative solutions to facilitate and optimise transport and logistics operations. Furthermore, they have enabled new applications and services that address key challenges the logistics sector faces;
Physical Internet (PI) aims at facilitating structural collaboration across logistics and supply chain actors achieving more efficient transport and logistics and supporting its decarbonization in an affordable way. Physical Internet proposes to build open and universal standard processes and protocols
