CO-GISTICS project to integrate C-ITS and logistics

ERTICO-ITS Europe, together with 33 partners, has launched the three-year EU-funded CO-GISTICS project, which will study the integration of existing logistics and freight transport systems with Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS). The project has a total budget EUR7.5m (US$10.2m) that includes EUR3.7m (US$5.1m) of EU funding and aims to increase energy efficiency and a more sustainable mobility of goods. Co-GISTICS will pilot in seven European cities: Arad (Romania), Bordeaux (France), Bilbao (Spain), Frankfurt (Germany), Thessaloniki (Greece), Trieste (Italy) and Vigo (Spain). The participating cities are expecting to see benefits that will include: reduced emissions from freight transport; lower fuel consumption; and the decrease of traffic congestion in city centers and around ports, airports and rail terminals. Each of the pilot sites includes all the partners needed for a successful after-project life, from public authorities to logistics operators. The user groups will include fleet operators, trucks, freight forwarders, terminal operators and logistics providers.

CO-GISTICS will deploy five services: intelligent parking and delivery areas; multimodal cargo; CO2 emission estimation and monitoring; priority and speed advice; and eco-drive support. The consortium will install the C-ITS services on at least 325 vehicles (trucks and vans). The project will be coordinated by ERTICO-ITS Europe and includes 34 partners representing public authorities, technological institutes, users and leading companies in the fields of freights and logistics. CO-GISTICS will not only prove the cost-efficiency and benefits of its services, but will also focus on deployment, scaling up and exchange of results. In order to ensure a successful continuation of the services after the project, the project will identify deployment barriers and propose appropriate solutions that are acceptable by the relevant stakeholders. Special attention will be given to the collaboration with the European standardization organizations, ETSI and CEN, for a future pan-European and global deployment of the services.
