Deploying Cooperative Logistics

CO-GISTICS is the first European project fully dedicated to the deployment of cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) focused on logistics. CO-GISTICS services are deployed in 7 European logistics hubs; Arad (Romania), Bordeaux (France), Bilbao (Spain), Frankfurt (Germany), Thessaloniki (Greece), Trieste (Italy) and Vigo (Spain). CO-GISTICS’ partners will work together for three years on the installation and running of cooperative services on at least 315 vehicles (trucks and vans).

After having developed the reference architecture in each pilot site, the project is now in its implementation phase and will start the baseline measurement as the first part of the assessment process. An early version of the business model already exists and will be finalised toward the end of the project.

Objectives

  • Pilot and deploy C-ITS in European logistics hubs
  • Reduce fuel consumption and the equivalent CO2 emissions
  • Improve logistics activities efficiency in urban areas
  • Harmonise testing and drive interoperability forward
  • Cooperate with logistics and freight public/private bodies
