Purpose and goal
The four feasibility studies included in this initiative have developed concrete suggestions for test and demonstration projects that aims for market implementation. In a long-term this will lead to more efficient and sustainable freight transport systems with digitization, connectivity and fossil-independent energy sources for freight transport. In addition, the initiative has included work to establish a strategic working group for Digitized and Connected logistics that aims to generate new innovative projects.
Expected results and effects
The project has developed new concepts and features that improve efficiency and sustainability of the freight transport system. It has also contributed to increased cooperation between business, academia and public sector within digitization and connectivity in the freight transport system. The four feasibility studies have concluded in proposals for demonstration projects with long-term goals of implementation. In addition, the strategic work group will contribute to an arena for cooperation where new project can be developed for digitized and connected logistics.
Planned approach and implementation
The project consists of four feasibility projects, each contributing towards a more efficient and sustainable freight transport system: SESAM - Proposal of a standardized system platform for digital locks. MMID - Conceptual prototype for a system platform for information sharing in multimodal supply chains. AutoLast - Technical conditions and solutions for a forklift that enable automated loading and unloading of goods. Biogas for HGV transport - Analysis of market conditions for alternative fuels for heavy goods vehicles.
