A POSSIBLE SOLUTION TO CONGESTION IN THE PORT OF ROTTERDAM

In the port of Rotterdam a new IT solution named BOXRELOAD (funded by the TEN-T EU) will have the function to write a schedule of truck trips in order to organize and reduce the number of truck trips and traffic in the often congested port area, bringing benefits in terms of economics and logistics.

 

 

This software solution allows haulages, who travel often with empty containers, to match via net transport journeys thus saving on operating costs of transport, fuel consumption and carbon emissions.

The project will be completed in December 2015 and its efficacy (assessed in terms of business sustainability, CO2 emissions saved and in vain trips) will determine the distribution in other congested port areas.

The effective realization of this project will be monitored by INEA, Innovation of the European Commission and Executive Agency Networks.
