As the end of the ICONET project is approaching we are pleased to announce we are holding online workshops to show the full activity and results of each Living Lab
If you would like to book a place on any of the workshops detailed below please see https://www.iconetproject.eu/workshops/
Living Lab 2 – P&G on Friday 15th January 2021 at 9am to 10.30 CET
This Living lab focuses on the value of tracking intermodal containers flows through the utilization of IoT devices. Today in Europe there are real time visibility solutions for vessels, airplanes, trucks, and some block trains, but none for containers in intermodal services.
Tracking devices and the respective tracking service, under the “Shipping OLI Layer” were tested. The Living Lab further investigated PI scenarios, through real-life application of IoT GPS sensors in combination with the simulation engine, emulating network operations at the scale of an intra-continental inter-country network.
Living Lab 4 – FM Logistic on Wednesday 20th January 2021 at 10am to 11.30 CET
The “Warehousing as a service” Living Lab is a test-bed for dynamic warehousing services designed on a network of networks composed by independent warehousing and transport service providers, all of them working in synergies that are coordinated by third party providers similar to a digital 4PL. The way to operate disrupts the current operation schema and logistics organisation on country level and could be transposed to most of the SME and even bigger companies triggering a singular collaborative approach. Accordingly, this workshop will demonstrate potential savings and enhanced ‘direct to customer’ service’s levels that the physical internet approach can bring to companies and cover market constraints and potential mitigations that could be required in order to make these synergies operate at global scale.
Living Lab 1 – Port of Antwerp on Monday 25th January 2021 at 10.30am to 12 CET
Living Lab 1 aims to design, implement and validate some of the ICONET Physical Internet (PI) concepts in the complex transport landscape of the area of the Port of Antwerp under the supervision of the Antwerp Port Authority.
Living Lab 3 – SONAE MC on Thursday 28th January 2021 at 10.30am to 12 CET
With the challenges in the current fulfilment model of SONAE MC’s Ecommerce, this Living Lab studied alternative business models that could provide them with the most efficient way to fulfil an order with (1) less cost, (2) avoiding stock outs and (3) with better lead time. This was tested in 2 different business scenarios (1) Decentralized order preparation and delivery and (2) Collaborative scenario combining food deliveries with orders from other businesses. They also studied potential contributions from PI services to their business model, namely networking services.
