PLANET aims to address the challenges of assessing the impact of emerging global trade corridors on the TEN-T network and to ensure effective integration of the European to the Global Network, through the transformation of TEN-T to a Physical Internet-enabled Integrated Green EU-Global transport and logistics Network, the EGTN.
The EGTN can be defined as a green, globally connected and smart network that is aware of the global and EU geoeconomic developments and takes advantage of technological advancements, responding to changes, ensuring equitable inclusivity of all transport and logistics (T&L) participants, preserving the environment and enhancing Citizens quality of life. As such, the EGTN extends the notion of the TEN-T concept by incorporating geo-economic awareness and takes a global view.
PLANET’s concept and vision is supported by the Open EGTN Platform, a unified interface to communicate with all of PLANET’s Cloud-based Open EGTN Infrastructure components that integrates infrastructure such as an Event Streaming Service, a Data Lake, monitoring interfaces, a dashboard with a User Interface (UI) as well as PI services − predictive analytics for logistics operations, Physical Internet (PI) route optimisation and Decision Support Systems (DSS) −, and provides seamless integration of these components based on an explicit governance model for onboarding users and data.
