A new research and innovation action will assess the impact of emerging global trade corridors on the TEN-T network, ensuring effective connectivity and
sustainability of the European Global Network.
PLANET is a 36-month project, starting on the 1 st of June 2020, that goes beyond strategic transport studies and ICT for transport research, by rigorously
demonstrating the emerging concepts (Physical Internet) and technologies (IoT, Blockchain) in three EU-global real-world corridors (China-EU-US). The project will focus in two key R&D pillars:
The project will liaise closely with the European Technology Platform ALICE and its developments and projects to join forces with all projects in this area.
Three Living Labs (including the ports of Valencia, Rotterdam and Sines) will contribute to the strategic analysis of global flows (based on the corridors where they are located), the analysis of corridor infrastructure issues, and the investigation of integration of the respective global corridor with the TEN-T. Furthermore, all Living Labs will investigate innovative ways to coordinate complex supply chains through multimodal corridors involving private and public stakeholders.
The PLANET Consortium:
The PLANET consortium comprises 33 partners of which 75% are represented in the project’s LLs and who collectively represent a large cohort of principal EU and Global Transport & Logistics. Inlecom is the project coordinator and the partners are:
