iCargo will 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 logistics through improved synchronisation and load factors across all transport modes.
The iCargo project aims at advancing and extending the use of ICT to support new logistics services that:
- Synchronize vehicle movements and logistics operations across various modes and actors to lower CO2 emissions
- Adapt to changing conditions through dynamic planning methods involving intelligent cargo, vehicle and infrastructure systems and
- Combine services, resources and information from different stakeholders, taking part in an open freight management ecosystem.
