PLANET at 2nd European Intermodal Summit: November 30, 2021

PLANET took part at the European Intermodal Summit 2021 on 30th November 2021, an event with more than 300 participants.

The event brought together high-level speakers to talk about:

  • Energy efficiency;
  • Decarbonisation in intermodal transport;
  • Industry initiatives to further improve productivity through digitalisation and standardisation.

Mr. Maurice Jansen (Erasmus University in Rotterdam) presented PLANET’s vision and methodology, as well as the analysis PLANET Project is conducting on intermodal transport, with special emphasis on the Eurasian Corridor.

During the presentation, Mr. Jansen focused on the main approach of the project:

To analyse and improve interoperability between countries, an assessment that goes beyond the EU borders.

In this part of the presentation, he emphasised that the standardisation and digitisation of Transport and Logistics (T&L) are dimensions that should prevail in T&L and that need to be worked on and advanced in order to achieve this interoperability.

In this context, he pointed out that the actions PLANET is carrying out are making it possible to analyse not only to what extent the EU is connected to international trade, but also whether the EU will be effectively and sustainably connected to global trade in the future.

To conclude, Mr. Jansen highlighted the 4 Foundational Position Papers elaborated by PLANET, focusing on the fact they:

  1. Allow to assess the impact of current and emerging routes on the existing EU transportation network (TEN-T), and the benefits of digitalisation and standardisation through the use of new technologies (Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Blockchain, Augmented Reality, Machine Learning, Digital Twins,…) and concepts (Physical Internet).
  2. Pave the way to the development of the simulation scenarios carried out under the PLANET Project through the Living Labs (LLs).
