Arctic Shipping Innovations

The Arctic Demonstrator has made significant strides in environmentally friendly navigation and propulsion algorithms. By simulating various scenarios, the project has demonstrated significant potential fuel savings by adopting tactical transit modes. These innovations not only reduce greenhouse gas emissions but also protect the delicate Arctic wildlife, ensuring that shipping activities are conducted sustainably.

Supply Chain Visibility and Data Sharing

The ePIcenter project has also revolutionized supply chain visibility, enabling real-time insights and data sharing among stakeholders. Through its data sharing and visibility platforms, the project has facilitated seamless collaboration, improved data quality, and automated notifications, leading to substantial cost savings and enhanced operational efficiency.

Physical Internet and Synchromodal Logistics

At the forefront of ePIcenter's vision is the adoption of the Physical Internet, a paradigm that encapsulates products in standardized, smart containers for efficient transportation. The project's synchromodal logistics algorithms have proven to dynamically optimize multimodal transportation routes, offering a robust response to disruptions and promoting sustainable transport modes.
