Clusters 2.0 - Open network of hyper connected logistics clusters towards Physical Internet

Clusters 2.0. vision is to leverage the full potential of European Logistics Clusters for an efficient and fully integrated transport system in Europe making optimal use of an Open Network of Logistics Clusters and hubs starting.

Within the scope of the project, the engagement, performance and coordination of terminals and hubs at cluster level will be improved. In addition to that, a hyper connected network of logistics hubs and clusters will be built. Furthermore, solutions to reduce operational costs of transhipment will be developed. In order to achieve the above objectives, prototypes of New Modular Load Units will be modelled. Moreover, terminal management systems to increase management capacity of the terminals and to reduce associated congestion will be developed. To improve a validate proposed solutions, Living Labs will be established and run. Arising from these Living Labs, Business Models and Robust Business Plans for Clusters 2.0 solutions will be developed.
