• NEW CONCEPT FOR LOGISTICS OPERATIONS
  • MODULUSHCA is about a new concept for logistics operations. The project addresses the recently introduced Physical Internet vision (PI), which proposes to use a new framework of interconnected logistics especially designed for open resource sharing, notably thanks to open standard on load units, real time identification and routing through open facilities.

  • NEW CONCEPT FOR LOGISTICS OPERATIONS
  • In this framework, potentially all goods are encapsulated in smart, modular, eco-friendly and standard units loads and are handled, stored and transported as best fit in these unit loads through shared facilities and across open networks.

  • INTERCONECTED LOGISTICS - PHYSICAL INTERNET
  • New supply chain service offers enabled by the new concept

  • New collaboration forms across the supply chain aiming towards a high service quality at lower cost level

  • Optimization of the transport processes by enhancing the load factor and reducing empty trips

Modulushca Project Final Conference to be held in Paris

The Second International Physical Internet Conference will take place from 6th to 8th of July 2015 in Paris. This conference follows the first IPIC conference organized last year in Québec. The event is hosted by MINES ParisTech and it will gather several Logistics European projects such as BESTFACT and LOGICON, both with the financial support of the European Commission. It’s supported also by MHI, the largest material handling, logistics and supply chain institute in USA.

This will be a joint event with the Final MODULUSHCA Project Conference, where the latest results and challenges about interconnected logistics will be presented. Modulushca project (Modular Logistics Units in Shared Co-Modal Networks) is the first real experience of the Physical Internet vision in Europe which proposes to use a new framework of interconnected logistics especially designed for open resource sharing. The aim of this event is to discuss the project advances and the new logistics approaches and to stimulate the participation within an open interconnected logistics system.
