Progress towards Federated Logistics Through The Integration Of TEN-T into A Global Trade Network

Duration: 01/06/2020 - 31/05/2023

Total funding: EUR 7,097,670.00

Challenge & Objectives

PLANET addresses the challenges of assessing the impact of emerging global trade corridors on the TEN-T network and ensuring effective integration of the European to the Global Network by focusing in two key R&D pillars:
  • A Geo-economics approach, modelling and specifying the dynamics of new trade routes and its impacts on logistics infrastructure & operations, with specific reference to TEN-T, including peripheral regions and landlocked developing countries;
  • An EU-Global network enablement through disruptive concepts and technologies (IoT, Blockchain and PI, 5G, 3D printing, autonomous vehicles / automation, hyperloop) which can shape its future and address its shortcomings, aligned to the DTLF concept of a federated network of T&L platforms. PLANET goes beyond strategic transport studies, and ICT for transport research, by rigorously modelling, analysing, demonstrating & assessing their interactions and dynamics thus, providing a more realistic view of the emerging T&L environment.
The project employs 3 EU-global real-world corridor Living Labs including sea and rail for intercontinental connection and provides the experimentation environment for designing and exploiting future PI-oriented Integrated Green EU-Global T&L Networks [EGTN]. To facilitate this process, PLANET delivers a Symbiotic Digital Clone for EGTNs, as an open collaborative planning tool for TEN-T Corridor participants, infrastructure planners, and industry/ technology strategists. PLANET also delivers an Active Blueprint and Road Map, providing guidance and building public & private actor capacity towards the realisation of EGTNs, and facilitating the development of disadvantaged regions. The project engages major T&L stakeholders, contributing to both strategy and technology and (importantly) has the industry weight and influence to create industry momentum in Federated Logistics and TEN-T’s integration into the Global Network.

In PLANET, eBOS will advance knowledge in sustainable Trade Logistics corridors extending the company’s R&D activities and capabilities in two main areas:

  • Human-machine interfaces (HMI)
  • Intelligent front-end dashboards.

eBOS will develop a unified interface to EGTN data and support services. The main goal is to deliver a unified interface to communicate with all of PLANET’s Cloud-based Open EGTN Infrastructure components via suitable interfaces, including mobile devices and HMI touch panels. The unified interface will also support non-human interfaces, i.e. Machine to Machine (M2M), such as those used by Industry 4.0 and Industrial IoT systems. The unified interface will be adaptable to the users’ needs with different access roles.

Customizable dashboards, using pre-defined templates, will support value-driven insights and analytics for management of the EGTN corridors and real-time state-of-the-system. Analytics will be delivered via visual data for easier and faster consumption and understanding by the end-user. These analytics will be filterable, segmented and will automatically show trends ensuring effective integration of the European to the Global trade corridors network. Furthermore, customised analytics will be delivered via drag-and-drop data visualization functions, which will enable users to assemble custom charts for the data they need to monitor.

The results will be applied in eBOS’ product portfolio for the Transport & Logistics sector effectively extending its R&D experience with the aim to expand the customer base.

eBOS will also participate in the implementation of the project’s quality assurance procedures focusing on the monitoring of review activities ensuring timely quality reports towards achieving project objectives.
