Analysis of ITS applications and solutions at logistics nodes
Ursa Major neo project is co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility of the European Union.
The main goal of UMneo is to identify the best ITS solutions to interconnect the logistic nodes (ports and freight villages) and arches (road networks) for sharing each other information about traffic conditions or allow operators to book in advance some specific services.
ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems) are known to be effective for several applications in the entire supply chain, e.g. for reducing congestions at gate terminals or along the road, for saving time and costs, for reducing the environmental footprint of logistics activities, etc.
The Italian partners involved in UMneo are the ports of La Spezia, Livorno, Ravenna, Trieste, Venezia, the freight village of Verona and the road network operators ANAS S.p.A, Autovie Venete S.p.A., Autobrennero S.p.A. and Autostrade per l’Italia S.p.A.
TRT was commissioned by RAM to describe the state of the art about ITS services and systems applied or planned in ports and freight villages infrastructures involved in the Ursa Major Neo project, pointing out the most relevant best practices.
Final results come both from desk-analysis and specific interviews that TRT performed with the involved partners.
