The Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) consists of hundreds of projects aimed at ensuring cohesion, interconnection and interoperability of all modes of transport across the EU. With TEN-T projects located in every EU member state, numerous challenges are associated with assessing the impact of emerging global trade corridors on the TEN-Ts. PLANET project will address this issue by demonstrating the emerging concepts of the physical internet and technologies such as the Internet of Things and blockchain in three EU–global real-world corridors (China–EU–US).


Living Labs

PLANET goes beyond strategic transport studies, and ICT for transport research, by rigorously modelling, analysing, demonstrating & assessing their interactions and dynamics thus, providing a more realistic view of the emerging T&L environment. The project employs 3 EU-global real-world corridor Living Labs including sea and rail for intercontinental connection and provides the experimentation environment for designing and exploiting future PI-oriented Integrated Green EU-Global T&L Networks [EGTN]. To facilitate this process, PLANET delivers a Symbiotic Digital Clone for EGTNs, as an open collaborative planning tool for TEN-T Corridor participants, infrastructure planners, and industry/technology strategists.

PLANET also delivers an Active Blueprint and Road Map, providing guidance and building public & private actor capacity towards the realisation of EGTNs, and facilitating the development of disadvantaged regions. The project engages major T&L stakeholders, contributing to both strategy and technology and has the industry weight and influence to create industry momentum in Federated Logistics and TEN-T’s integration into the Global Network.
