The AEOLIX consortium has produced a Paper which defines the vision and scope of the European Logistics Information exchange platform which will transform the digital logistics ecosystem. This paper will provide the relevant stakeholders with all the necessary information regarding the ambitious AEOLIX technology, how the end user and business community can enjoy its benefits and impacts through a well-defined business and governance structure.
In the absence of a common framework, architecture, business model and governance structure for connecting European transport corridors across borders using existing IT systems and services for logistics, an ambitious project called AEOLIX kicked off under the European Commission Horizon 2020 programme.
Launched in September 2016 with the aim of contributing to the priorities of the EU policy, AEOLIX is also looking at the optimisation of cargo flows, the facilitation of supply chain management, the reduction of administrative burdens and to make better use of existing resources.
AEOLIX (Architecture for EurOpean Logistics Information eXchange) co-funded under the Horizon 2020 Programme and with an overall EC funding of 16 million, will develop a Pan European digital ecosystem to better manage, plan and synchronise freight and logistics operations. By enabling low complexity and low cost connectivity of local ICT platforms and systems and thereby scalable, trusted and secure exchange of information, AEOLIX will improve the overall competitiveness of goods transport in the supply chain, while simultaneously targeting sustainability from environmental, economic and social perspectives. AEOLIX platform will be implemented in 11 Living Labs whose locations is directly linked to the TEN-T network nodes across Europe.
