iCargo Project: general presentation

  1. 1. An ecosystem for freight information services: the iCargo project www.i-cargo.eu Intelligent Cargo in Efficient and Sustainable Global Logistics Operations 1
  2. 2. ! The iCargo integrated project ! Objective: To build an open affordable information architecture that allows real world objects, existing systems, and new applications to efficiently co-operate, enabling more cost effective and lower-CO2 logistic processes. ! ! !

  3. 3. The iCargo Vision By 2020, efficient, low-carbon end-to-end transport and logistics services will be planned, executed and completed cooperatively in a global freight business ecosystem, based on fully interoperable cargo, vehicle, infrastructure and freight management systems, supporting optimal resources usage and real-time alignment of intermodal plans with ongoing operations.

  4. 4. The iCargo approach Achieve the iCargo vision through an open freight management ecosystem. A business ecosystem is an “intentional community of economic actors” having in common protocols, interfaces and an overall business goal. In the case of iCargo this is the provision of door-to-door low-carbon logistic services, i.e., services that: – cover an entire supply chain or a significant portion of it, – produce less CO2 than alternatives, – make use of the iCargo ecosystem to combine services through different transport modes and providers. www.i-cargo.eu Intelligent Cargo in Efficient and Sustainable Global Logistics Operations 4
  5. 5. The iCargo ecosystem Door-to-door service Roles and resources assigned on demand Ecosystem - Inclusive - Decentralized - Based on shared rules Virtual Resources Network - Automated resource discovery Connected resources - Selected on the basis of the Virtual Resources Network Options - Integrated view based on common semantics - Support distributed monitoring and planning 5 www.i-cargo.eu Intelligent Cargo in Efficient and Sustainable Global Logistics Operations 5
  6. 6. Key messages in the iCargo vision • Logistic networks are opened up – Resources (transport services, logistic services, value-added services) are discoverable and easily integrated in door-to-door solutions. – Decentralized approach vs. proprietary logistic network.  Search and integration of logistics services is no longer a specialist activity.  Intermediation is not needed if logistic networks are opened up. No need of proprietary networks managers (3PL, marketplace). • Interoperability is no longer a solution, it is a problem solved (commodity) – Common semantics for basic transport services concepts. – Automated support for cross-standard mediation.  Integration know-how and interoperability platforms are no longer strong value propositions (if they ever have been). www.i-cargo.eu Intelligent Cargo in Efficient and Sustainable Global Logistics Operations 6
  7. 7. iCargo innovations • Collaborative planning, for pooling and sharing resources across the logistic chain. • Logistic chain composition based on services, for integrating the different available transport and logistic services. • Re-planning of logistic chains by (or on behalf of) the client, in case of goals changes or events happen during the execution time. • Optimization of the use of resources of the logistic chain, allowing the Logistic Service Providers to be more situational aware and so to optimize the use of transport resources. • Monitoring the environmental footprint, providing smart tools and shared methodologies for environmental data gathering and reporting. www.i-cargo.eu Intelligent Cargo in Efficient and Sustainable Global Logistics Operations 7
  8. 8. iCargo functions • Logistic chain composition – Collaborative planning support (information services support to the “physical internet”). – Open logistic network based on common definition of transport and logistic services. – Taking into account 3 dimensions: cost, effectiveness, emissions. • Logistic network awareness – Monitoring infrastructure based on Intelligent Cargo, vehicle and infrastructure connectivity. – Re-planning triggered by automated monitoring and deviations. – Dynamic alignment of individual service providers plans. • Emissions monitoring – Monitoring infrastructure includes collection of energy consumption data. – Real-time calculation of emissions at shipment level. www.i-cargo.eu Intelligent Cargo in Efficient and Sustainable Global Logistics Operations 8
  9. 9. Date!of!preparation:! ! Pilot case: green corridor • Provision of co-modal door-to-door transport solutions to manufactures, through integration of roads of the sea with hinterland services offerings, rail and last-mile distribution. Controlled chain Producer Distrinution Centre Customer • The resulting combined services will have an improved environmental ! profile, by increasing the utilisation of the ships, and will improve the ! customer service through updated information and easier accessibility. ! ! www.i-cargo.eu Intelligent Cargo in Efficient and Sustainable Global Logistics Operations 9
  10. 10. WP!topic!addressed: Name!of!the!coordinating!person: e8mail: Fax: Pilot case: manufacturer-LSP cooperation Date!of!preparation:! ! • This Business Case aims to provide integrated transport and crossdocking for manufacturers, with order reconstruction at each stage based on real-time information and postponement strategies.

Warehouse Warehouse Customer To increase load factor of dispatched trucks in combination with ! the real-time monitoring of emissions during the transport phase. www.i-cargo.eu Intelligent Cargo in Efficient and Sustainable Global Logistics Operations 10
  11. 11. Conclusions and next steps • Logistic resources can be better utilized, and emissions can be lowered, by taking an ecosystem approach. • The iCargo ecosystem concept entails opened-up logistic networks and widespread interoperability, based on connectivity services. • This will support logistic chain composition, dynamic planning based on awareness of logistic network execution, and emissions monitoring. • Current business models will evolve and some will be disrupted. • Next steps: – iCargo objectives: to design, implement it and to prove that it works. – To disseminate the results and extend the pilots. www.i-cargo.eu Intelligent Cargo in Efficient and Sustainable Global Logistics Operations 11
