Logistics Information Exchange Platforms: insights of the AEOLIX Project
Paper in proceedings, 2018
Within this paper, the vision for a European logistics information exchange platform is presented and discussed, as it has been developed within the EC funded AEOLIX project. To overcome the fragmentation and lack of connectivity of ICT-based information systems for logistics decision making, AEOLIX aims to establish a cloud- based collaborative logistics ecosystem for configuring and managing (logistics-related) information pipelines. This digital business ecosystem will create visibility across the supply chain, enabling more sustainable and efficient transport of goods cross Europe. An essential element of the approach is to ensure that for logistics actors connecting to and using the ecosystem in undemanding and has a low level of complexity. AEOLIX envisions the ecosystem enabling the integration of supply-chain-related transport business processes through logistics software solutions for cloud-based connectivity and interaction, in order to support more efficient collaboration in the logistics supply chain than exists today.
