The Greek Pilot Site (FENIXGR) operates as an open innovation community within which private enterprises, public authorities and research institutions collaborate to facilitate research-practice integration, and develop solutions for real-life, transport and logistics (T&L) business scenarios. FENIXGR’s main goal is achieving integrated T&L operations along the Greek part of the Orient/East-Med Corridor and to the rest of TEN-T corridors towards North and Central Europe through the federation of local logistics platforms.
Actions & Opportunities
FENIXGR focuses on the enhancement of the competitiveness and ecological footprint of the Greek part of the Orient/East-Med Corridor by emphasizing in the part of the corridor that connects the biggest and busiest port of Greece, Piraeus, the capital city, Athens, and the second most populated city, Thessaloniki, to the northern borders area. This will be achieved through the digital transformation of logistics operations and the provision of smart supply chain solutions for real time information and data exchange – that refer to both rail and road operations – along the corridor.
In this way, an interconnected Greek Transport & Logistics Network will be established enabling the movement of goods from ports and airports to every city and receiver destination in ways that optimize environmental performance. More specifically, the proposed infrastructure will:
The following cases are implemented in the Greek Pilot site: Digitalisation of port processes (A2B, B2B, B2A processes), Balanced use of modal availability along the corridor – Intermodality, Monitoring of status of transport operations, Traffic management & parking availability, Yellow Pages & KPIs, and End-to-end provision of logistics services for SMEs along the corridor.
