CO3 Collaboration Concepts for Co-Modality
This project was a 3 year project that was successfully completed in August 2014. There were 18 members of the consortium of which ELUPEG was one along with a High Level Industry Board (HLIB) whose role was to review and discuss CO³ milestones and results and give valuable market feedback for development and success of the project.
The mission of the CO3 project was to:
NexTrust is a 31 member consortium of some of Europe’s leading thinkers on collaborative logistics. Its objective is to increase efficiency and sustainability in logistics by developing an innovative business model with interconnected, trusted, collaborative networks along the entire supply chain.
ELUPEG is part of the consortium and the project will last for 42 months from May 2015
This project has received funding from the EU Horizon 2020 Research & Innovation programme under grant agreement 635874
An Intelligent Multi-modal Collaboration Gateway accessed through a Hi-Speed Portal to create the strategic capability where shippers and transport providers can match Supply & Demand & can view the best routing options for goods in terms of value & CO2 emissions.
All this through the provision of an organised “work-space” that permits the collaboration of shippers and transport providers utilizing Road, Rail, Inland Waterways, Short Sea & Coastal Shipping Modes.
To create a market space in which each can share and exchange data in order to optimise Service levels, Carbon Footprint, Utilisation of Assets, Value for Money
The TGMatrix vision requires a necessary change in the current transport procurement paradigm.
SELIS - Shared European Logistics Intelligent Information Space
ELUPEG is part of the consortium for this project starting on September 1st 2016 - for more information see the SELIS websiteThe Shared European Logistics Intelligent Information Space is a network of logistic communities’ specific shared intelligent information spaces termed SELIS Community Nodes. SELIS Community Nodes are constructed by individual logistics communities to facilitate the next generation of collaborative, responsive and agile green transportation chains. SELIS Community Nodes link with their participants’ existing systems through a secure infrastructure and provide shared information and tools for data acquisition and use, according to a 'cooperation agreement'. Connected nodes, provide a distributed common communication and navigation platform for Pan European logistics applications. Each Node decides what information wishes to publish and what information wants to subscribe to. The SELIS Community Node concept represents the evolution of a longline of research in this area. The fundamental principle is that it provides a ‘lightweight ICT structure’ to enable information sharing for collaborative sustainable logistics for all at strategic and operational levels.
ALICE - Alliance for Logistics Innovation through Collaboration in Europe
ALICE was launched on the 11th of June 2013 with the support of European Commission DG MOVE and DG RESEARCH and recognized as an official European Technology Platform by the European Commission in July 2013. ALICE has been set-up to develop a comprehensive strategy for research, innovation and market deployment of logistics and supply chain management in Europe with the mission: “to contribute to a 30% improvement of end to end logistics performance by 2030”.
