Abstract:

The visions and concepts of recent research in "Physical Internet" (PI) try to avoid waste of resources in sustainable supply chains. Based on cross-company collaboration new principles of resource sharing shall be introduced. Therefore, higher-level coordination instances and new business standards are needed to increase the overall efficiency and to significantly reduce traffic in order to gain a substantial reduction in traffic. The research project “Go2PI” creates criteria and guidelines regarding aspects of technical infrastructure, information systems and operational processes to develop a provider neutral and open business model for distribution logistics. These guidelines are outlined and presented in this paper in three main implementation steps: Setting the vision for coopetition, standardization of logistics operations and standardization of financial clearing models. Additionally, further research objectives like business models, PI-hypersystem and the qualification process for transport service providers are described.
