ICONET is a 30-month project that will significantly extend the state-of-the-art research and development around the Physical Internet (PI) concept in pursuit of a new networked architecture for interconnected logistics hubs by focusing on the following areas:
• Research, under the PI umbrella, into new business models that underpin intermodal transport, warehousing and ecommerce fulfilment.
• Development of an experimental ICT proof of concept (PoC) Infrastructure Platform to support the simulation and testing of the PI concepts.
• Development of representative PI solutions for each of the three Focus Areas for the corresponding Living Labs. 1
