Case Studies

ICONET has delivered their final outputs, and the EU is keen that the key results already in the public domain are shared widely with organisations involved in the transport and logistics sector. Therefore, in addition to the technical reports, case studies have been produced that convey what was done at a level of general strategic interest, with a focus on the benefits and opportunities identified by the studies, alongside a consideration of the broader strategic possibilities and future implications for the logistics sector.

These case studies should be of interest to senior decision makers within logistics service providers, logistics service users, trade organisations, professional institutes, government regulators and policymakers.

The consortium developed a range of core concepts and technologies required to enable the physical internet in four ‘Living Labs’, each of which involved commercial partners that helped design and test the applications to transform operations in their environment.

Living Lab 1: Ports as the future engines of the Physical Internet and IoT Supply Chains – available soon

Living Lab 2: The potential for high volume transport corridors enabled by the Physical Internet – download the case study here

Living Lab 3: The role of IoT in reducing costs and stock outs in fulfilment of online retail and home delivery – download the case study here

Living Lab 4: Physical Internet as enabler towards networked Warehousing as a Service (WaaS) – download the case study here
