Digitized & Connected Logistics

Using innovative digital technology, new conditions are being created to enhance the efficiency of the logistics and transport systems of the future. Innovations and effective business models are helping to create a smarter use of resources in today’s infrastructure and the transport system as a whole. 

In the theme area of Digitized & Connected Logistics, CLOSER is driving a number of projects, while at the same time, creating a platform for strategic cooperation. 

Sweden has favorable conditions to become a leader in the ongoing wave of digitization that is occurring in all sectors of society. In the area of transport and logistics, there are major opportunities to strengthen the competitiveness of Swedish enterprise using smart digital innovations and increased cooperation through connectivity. At the same time, digital technology can address changed trading patterns and customer and consumer demands related to greater transparency, quality and sustainability.

Projekt

  • Autolast Read more

    Automation is considered an important enabler for more efficient freight transport systems. This project addressed the issues surrounding a relatively unexplored aspect of freight transport systems: automatic loading and unloading of freight. The project’s objective was to study the potential—and the technical conditions required—to develop and prepare one or more demonstrations of autonomous forklifts that can load and unload freight.

  • Automated logistics services Read more

    To create conditions for sustainable urban and regional development there needs to be efficient transportation to, from and within cities and regions. By looking into different cases related to the handling of goods, collection of data and connection of goods, load carriers and vehicles, this pre-study aims to identify specific areas where efficiency could be improved by automation and also what other benefits automation can provide.

     

  • Multimodal information sharing Read more

    During the spring and summer of 2018, the Multimodal Information Sharing cooperation project (MMID in Swedish) took the first steps toward creating conditions for a standardized information sharing service for industrial freight flows. The project took the form of a preliminary study, of which the purpose was to use two use cases to identify gaps in the flow of information - something that today occurs in modal shift between vehicles and other modes of transportation. 

  • SESAM Read more

    The project’s objective was to develop a business model and technical platform for digital locks that will contribute to more effective supply chains and improve the level of service for product owners and freight recipients through a more customized logistical arrangement. A standard for digital locks creates the conditions for freight recipients to allow carriers to open locked spaces and to deliver the goods even if the freight recipient is not on site. 

  • SESAM II Read more

    The objective of this project was to establish a sustainable business model and to ensure the quality of the technical platform for the digital locks that were developed in the first SESAM project. Its ambition was to contribute to a more effective supply chain and improved level of service for product owners and freight recipients through a more customized logistical arrangement. A standard for digital locks creates the conditions for freight recipients to allow carriers to open locked spaces and to deliver the goods even if the freight recipient is not on site.
