  • RISULTATO

Logistics for LIFE brings together leading logistic companies, technology providers and research organizations working on innovative ICT solutions to ensure long-term sustainability of the logistic industry by increasing its operational efficiency.

The project is motivated by freight transport heavy reliance on fossil fuel, its contribution to CO2 emissions and by its impact on the environment and quality of life. These issues are counterbalanced by considerations specific to the logistics industry, where attempts to direct cargo towards environment friendly transport modes are failing to meet expectations and firms face problems of volatile fuel prices, infrastructures saturation and low margins typical of a commoditized sector. Logistics for LIFE will drive European ICT for Transport research in the direction of making logistic operations more efficient, and thus more environmentally friendly, financially and socially sustainable on the long term.

The following results will be achieved:
1) a multi-disciplinary network pursuing efficiency-related initiatives within EU, international or industrial programs, and attracting key stakeholders through a dedicated Forum;
2) a reference framework linking the stakeholders efficiency requirements to sustainability strategic objectives and to relevant ICT solutions;
3) a strategic roadmap including concrete actions and strategies for ICT solutions implementation;
4) coordinated dissemination activities and
5) a common working platform aimed at the community of users and researchers pursuing ICT-based logistics sustainability.

The Logistics for LIFE Consortium is formed by 19 partners including global leaders in logistics, vehicle and technology manufacturing, ICT companies and research organizations representing some of the major initiatives and research projects in the field. International Cooperation partners from China, US and Eastern Europe are part of the Consortium or expressed their interest in Forum participation.
