• 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
