iCargo @ ITS Europe Helsinki 2014
We are proud to announce the iCargo / CO-GISTICS organized special interest session “Innovative connection concept for logistics and supply chain management” at the ITS Europe Conference in Helsinki (16th – 19th June, 2014)
European logistics stakeholders are under increased pressure to reduce the impact that their operations have on the environment as well as improving certain aspects of goods management i.e. guaranteeing reliable real-time information exchange for goods movement between transport modes A vast amount of technologies are already available today to manage different aspects of goods movement, but these existing systems are currently not linked to each other, missing the opportunity to optimise the performance of their cooperation. This special session aims to show the concrete benefits of merging two worlds: logistics and cooperative mobility services. Transport stakeholders from the European projects iCargo and CO-GISTICS will show interactively how organisations in the field of logistics and supply chain management can exchange information in a secure and controlled way and how this can help to optimise business. Moreover, the objective is to demonstrate that the integration of currently existing freight and transport systems and services, with inclusion of new innovative aspects such as cooperative services and intelligent cargo, will lead to an improvement of energy efficiency and a better sustainable mobility of goods in the field of urban mobility and city logistics.
