Digital and Automated Multimodal Nodes and Corridors

Innovation Area B - Digital and Automated Multimodal Nodes and Corridors

  • Description
    In line with the Digital Transport & Logistics Forum’s (DTLF)
    digitalization strategy, MultiRELOAD transforms intermodal freight nodes into interconnected data platforms to connect actors, physical and digital infrastructure, assets, resources and services on three levels: terminal, node and corridor creating a truly integrated transport and logistics network. These innovations support the ongoing shift to multimodal service optimization, creating door-to-door transparent supply chains by enabling tracking of freight locations and better and more efficient use of resources. Communication between the equipment thereby increases the use of standardized, interoperable ITU’s and IoT related services that are digitally accessible and bookable (WP3).
