INTE-TRANSIT participation in the 6th European Conference on ICT for Transport Logistics (ECITL)

The INTE-TRANSIT project had been presented by IAT during the exhibition of the 6th European Conference on ICT for Transport Logistics (ECITL) that took place in Zaragoza, on 23-25 October 2013 under the theme "Solutions and Innovation through Cooperation". 

During ECITL, the INTE-TRANSIT partner, IAT, distributed about 150 informative project brochures while some interesting contacts with important organizations related to the port activities and their technologies (port authorities, National and European logistics platforms, technological institutes and universities, among others) have been established.

Among the topics discussed during this event were: the RFID technology applied to logistics processes, the innovation chain as the means of the development of logistics technologies, the risk management in respect to the globalization of supply chains, the need to address the transformation of the supply chain from a demand and an integrative end-to-end approach, the concept of Supply Chain Control Tower or the development of horizontal collaboration as an option to be more efficient.

Moreover innovative technologies were analyzed, such as those that detect the empty space in the truck and the shape of the load to facilitate the distribution in the vehicle, or multiview systems. During the event, in addition to the dissemination of INTE TRANSIT, activities and results, other projects were also presented such as FutureMED, iCargo, COMCIS, T-TRANS or FREVEU, as well as the European logistics platform ALICE.
