CO-GISTICS deploys cooperative ITS services for logistics. The integration of currently existing freight and transport systems and services, with innovative solutions such as cooperative services and intelligent cargo, will lead to increased energy efficiency and more sustainable mobility of goods.
Seven logistics hubs, Arad, Bordeaux, Bilbao, Frankfurt, Thessaloniki, Trieste and Vigo strongly believe in the integration of currently existing freight and transport systems and services, with new solutions such as cooperative services and intelligent cargo. This will help making operation of their goods, trucks, roads, harbours, airports and rail terminals more sustainable, i.e. reduce CO2 emissions and improve cost-efficiency.
Each of the pilot sites includes all the partners for a successful after-project life, from public authorities to logistics operators. The user groups will include fleet operators, trucks, freight forwarders, terminal operators and logistics providers. The consortium will install the services on at least 315 vehicles (trucks and vans).
CO-GISTICS has 9 partners and 3 pilot sites in common with Compass4D and endorses the same potential to become a lighthouse project on deployment of Cooperative ITS (C-ITS) in Europe.
