E-Impact

The role of Consorzio 906:
Technical support

This project consists of the launch of an e-freight system (the full digitalisation of paper logistics documents) and e-delivery infrastructure in Italy, Poland and Portugal along the three TEN-T corridors (Atlantic, Mediterranean and Baltic-Adriatic) with the aim of simplifying and reducing the cost of data exchange between the various players, and the different modes of transport along the logistics chain. This will lead to a more efficient, greener form of cargo transport
and will facilitate the use of multimodal solutions. The initiative will involve the central ports of Trieste in Italy, Danzig, Gdynia, Szczecin and Świnoujście in Poland, Leixões and Lisbon in Portugal, and will provide a toolkit for the adoption of e-freight as well as a feasibility assessment of e-Freight PPP, by estimating the technical, financial and legal requirements of each party involved at corridor level, and through the three corridors in the network.

Objectives

  • To improve efficiency by exchanging planning and execution data to synchronise intermodal transport and optimise loading
  • To reduce costs by automating the exchange of data between the various systems of each party involved, including customs authorities and public administrations
  • To increase business by maximising the use of infrastructure, vehicles and logistics resources along the target corridors

    Business

      • Carrying out of studies to assess the economic viability of the e-Freight solutions of each party involved, at corridor level and among the various corridors in the central network
      • Preparation of guidelines and requirements for migration to e-Freight, from the existing systems and architectures, in line with the e-Freight initiatives carried out at European level
      • Development of 4 actual business cases involving the main stakeholders (carriers, providers of logistics services and authorities) who will benefit from the implementation of e-Freight policies
