Physical internet

Zuid-Holland smart logistics

The province of Zuid-Holland would like to have more insight into the advantages of a ‘physical internet’ approach and what new insights this provides compared to the standard mobility approach.

The province of Zuid-Holland would like to stimulate the logistics sector in exploiting the economic opportunities in the world of digitisation and self-propelled (logistics) transport. The province is also interested in what its role in this playing field can and perhaps even should be, as a road authority, but also with regard to the economy and innovation.

What we do

The province of Zuid-Holland would like to have more insight into the advantages of a ‘physical internet’ approach and what new insights this provides compared to the standard mobility approach. Which internal stakeholders within the province need to be convinced of this?

One group is looking at digitisation and the role of road administrator, while the other group is mainly looking at the economic impact on the logistics sector, among other things. In addition, they would like to know more about the blockages for the realisation of the ‘physical internet’ in Zuid-Holland, in particular data sharing, and the possible role(s) that the province can play in this area, in particular how to make use of the province’s own (digital) role in the logistics process. In practical terms, this concerns the way in which PZH connects to which digital platform.

Why we do it

The development of logistics is in the phase from “1.0 to 2.0”. Slowly but surely the chain is becoming more and more automated and algorithms determine the ordering process. The ultimate goal is the “physical internet” (logistics 4.0) where “everything is connected to everything” in terms of data and hardware. The physical internet makes the logistics process more efficient and affordable.

Result

By conducting research into this on behalf of and in cooperation with the Province of Zuid-Holland, we hope to create a deeper insight into this new phase of logistics. With this in-depth insight we hope to be able to draw up a knowledge agenda and roadmap in which we can compare the various developments within this theme with the expected time that they can be introduced into logistics.
