3. Making Logistics Collaborative Processes Trustable

Fierce competition among logistics service providers limits the desire and opportunity to share and communicate data among different stakeholders. The trends of (mainly vertical) coordination, collaboration, competition and data sharing within the logistics service sector require a new services platform. Acquiring targeted, consistent and homogeneous data and information enables proper assessment of existing problems and can improve efficiency, sustainability, and resiliency of logistics services. Further, understanding the demand of logistics services and even more being able to anticipate or influence would help to create more efficient new logistics business models. This project aims to achieve a trustable logistics collaborative processes with the right quality, reliable content, freight flows in operations, and activities that allow different logistics services related providers and customers to access. The PhD candidate is also expected to travel to our partners’ locations within the consortium (outside the UK) for up to of 12 months.  More details
