WiderMoS project showed its main outcomes and the four Corridor Management Platforms at the 8th European Conference on ICT for Transport Logistics (ECITL). The full conference was held in Bordeaux from 5th – 7th October 2015, and the industrial section dedicated to the “Wide interoperability through multimodal maritime based corridors” was held in day 3, on 7th October.
This year ECITL focused on how “ICT drives transport logistics cooperation“. Themes highlighted the growing importance of efficient and effective logistics and supply chain management and operation. As every year, many industrial practitioners, scientists and politicians were invited from all over the world as partners for discussion.
Specialists involved in WiderMoS project showed to the audience logistic and supply chain challenges, business needs, trends and solutions from different perspectives.
The first presentation by Mr. David Ciprés (ITAINNOVA) was an overview of WiderMoS project from a holistic perspective: WHY – HOW – WHAT. First of all, the presentation showed the importance of linking the Motorways of the Sea (MoS) concept with core TEN-T network corridors in the EU, to foster its effective and sustainable connection (WHY). The main concept of the project, the Corridor Management Platform (CMP) was also presented as the mechanism to implement the interoperability between modes and as key factor to achieve a door-to-door Logistics (HOW). This presentation set the basis for the understanding of the different pilots at European level within the project (WHAT).
The following interventions illustrated the Corridor Management Platform Pilot developed in the WiderMoS project. Mr. Angel Priegue (CIMNE) from Spain, Mr. Simone Pacciardi (Circle) from Italy and Mr. Rui Barros (INESC TEC) from Portugal explained the main characteristics of the CMPs developed in each country.
This conference provided an ideal opportunity to share WiderMoS experience with the other project involved in the ECITL and the other expertise coming from all over the world.
