Efficient and Low Emissions Assets and Energy

ALICE released end of 2019 the “Roadmap Towards Zero Emissions Logistics in 2050” as part of the renewed ALICE strategy and under the leadership of Sustainable Logistics Supply Chains Thematic Group.

The figure below includes different solutions areas for supply chain decarbonization. ALICE is working on realizing these efficiency gains through the sister thematic groups on, Corridors, Hubs and Synchromodality, Global Supply Network Coordination and Collaboration and Urban logistics.

The current focus for this Thematic Group is currently on fleets and assets are energy efficient and use the lowest emissions energy source feasible through the following programmes:

Solutions for freight transport and logistics decarbonisation

Additionally, the Thematic Group delivered in 2014 a Research and Innovation roadmap on “Sustainable, Safe and Secure Supply Chains“.  We envisioned an evolution towards fully integrated supply networks, in which logistics service providers, shippers and authorities closely cooperate.

Key milestones

  • 2020 – Full alignment of economics, environmental and social goals
  • 2030 – Integrated decision making in end-to-end supply chain

Physical Internet pilot implementations well functioning and extended in industry practice

  • 2040 – Safe and secure supply chains for circular economy
  • 2050 – Zero Emissions Logistics
