ePIcenter: AI & Logistics
Future-proofing International Logistics
MJC² is working with the Port of Antwerp, and a consortium of 36 partners representing leading ports, forwarders, cargo owners, logistics, knowledge institutes and technology firms on the ePIcenter project.
The partners will join forces to provide hands on solutions that turn global supply chain challenges caused by increasing length, complexity and vulnerability into opportunities.
The goal will be to enable seamless transport of goods, focusing especially on the technological and operational opportunities that the Physical Internet, synchro-modal operations and other disruptive technologies such as Hyperloop, Industry 4.0 and autonomous vehicles provide.
Synchromodal Logistics Algorithms
ePIcenter has a truly global scope, with a number of large scale demonstrators on main shipping routes from Europe to Canada and the US, as well as new trade routes such as the Northern Sea Route and the new Silk Road routes.
Technology innovators and environmental experts will collaborate to develop new solutions which increase the efficiency and sustainability of global supply chains.
MJC²’s role is to apply its real-time container logistics optimization algorithms to multimodal freight operations, developing innovative new solutions which increase operational efficiency for logistics operators while reducing congestion in major ports and terminals.
Sustainable Global Logistics
With result oriented field trials and working with some of the most ambitious players in the trade & logistics sector, ePIcenter commits to create solutions with tangible impact towards the sustainable logistics chain of the future.
