Modular Logistics Units in shared co-modal networks

MODULUSHCA

The goal of the project is to enable operating with developed iso-modular logistics units of sizes adequate for real modal and co-modal flows of fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG), providing a basis for an interconnected logistics system for 2030.

MODULUSHCA is about a new concept for logistics operations. The project addresses the recently introduced Physical Internet vision (PI), which proposes to use a new framework of interconnected logistics especially designed for open resource sharing, notably thanks to open standard on load units, real time identification and routing through open facilities.

In this framework, potentially all goods are encapsulated in smart, modular, eco-friendly and standard units loads and are handled, stored and transported as best fit in these unit loads through shared facilities and across open networks.

Expected results:

  • New supply chain service offers enabled by the new concept

  • New collaboration forms across the supply chain aiming towards a high service quality at lower cost level.

  • Optimization of the transport processes by enhancing the load factor and reducing empty trips.
