Big data is expected to have a profound economic and societal impact in mobility and logistics. Examples include 500 billion USD in value worldwide in the form of time and fuel savings, and savings of 380 megatons CO2. With freight transport activities projected to increase by 40% in 2030, transforming the current mobility and logistics processes to become significantly more efficient, will have a profound impact. A 10% efficiency improvement may lead to EU cost savings of 100 billion EUR. This keynote will highlight the key value dimensions for big data in mobility and logistics. The talk will present examples from the EU Horizon 2020 lighthouse project TransformingTransport, demonstrating the transformations that big data can bring to the mobility and logistics sector. TransformingTransport addresses 13 pilots in seven highly relevant pilot domains within mobility and transport that will benefit from big data solutions and the increased availability of data. The talk will close with an outlook on barriers and future opportunities.
