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.
By the end of May, the European Union Research Project “Intelligent Cargo in Efficient and Sustainable Global Logistics Operations“ (iCargo) comes to its end.

At this date, the iCargo consortium had 43 months of intensive research, testing, and prototyping in the field of transport logistics and supply chain management in conjunction with emerging Information- and Communication Technologies (ICT).

RFID in Rail – On the right track with RFID

The railroad is becoming an increasingly important part of intermodal transports, in order to reduce the impact of CO2 in our environment, especially at longer distances. An effective railway also includes a clear and efficient flow of information and that has been the key issue for the iCargo project.

The DHL Business Case – Applying MixMoveMatch

One of the key objectives of the iCargo project is to use information and communication technologies to reduce emission of greenhouse gases. Reducing the number of vehicles needed for moving goods, is one way of realising this ambition.

The DHL business case in iCargo is presented in this video. It demonstrates that by rethinking the supply chain and introducing a logistics process that does not require any significant investment contributes to reducing emissions and saving cost for shippers and logistics service providers.
