A vast amount of technologies is already available today to manage different aspects of goods movement, but these existing systems are currently not linked to each other, missing the opportunity to optimise the performance of their coordination.

The 7 pilot sites are working on 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, for example reduce CO2 emissions and improve cost-efficiency.

CO-GISTICS is deploying the following 5 services:


Intelligent Truck Parking and Delivery Areas Management

Optimise traffic activities on the route and reduction of stops

  • Provide real-time information on parking availability
  • Optimise truck stops on the route, queues and delivery

Deployed in: Arad, Bilbao, Frankfurt, Vigo
