Ring road logistics – more efficient use of infrastructure – feasibility study
Aiming for sustainable construction logistics
28 November 2018
The aim of the MIMIC project is to demonstrate how SMART Governance concepts can be used as an aid in the construction and city planning processes. They can facilitate and support logistics to, from and on urban construction sites to improve mobility and reduce congestion. This is done within cities and will thereby reduce the negative impact of construction sites on the surrounding community.

Intelligent Video Gate will improve efficiency in Europe’s railroad terminals
15 October 2018
Expectations were high when the prototype from FR8HUB was first demonstrated at the Shift2Rails booth during Innotrans 2018. Intelligent Video Gate, as the demonstration showed, is a key technique being developed at FR8HUB and, when it’s ready to be implemented, will bring a significant increase in efficiency to the work currently done at terminals.
