The logistics and transport sector plays an influential role in sustainability and decarbonization by optimizing operations and supply chain. These benefits can be achieved through new solutions in the logistics industry that provide greater efficiency and are significantly based on digitalization and connectivity towards intelligent mobility ecosystems.
A notable share of freight traffic in Europe, for example, is handled by rail, which is characterized by a very high level of safety and is likely to form the backbone for climate-neutral and sustainable logistics and mobility. Increasing integration into superimposed systems, usually formed by digital systems, is achieved through integration into communication networks, digitized processes, and Big Data and artificial intelligence (AI).
European solutions for smart mobility and transportation can increase their attractiveness by setting high requirements for data protection, digital sovereignty and ensuring a high level of cyber security. Important parts for the land-based transport of goods and passengers are part of the critical infrastructure because breakdowns or failures could lead to personal injury or supply bottlenecks. New mobility solutions can be adopted in the logistics industry and supply chain to streamline the operations, reduce costs, induce data-driven decisions and also enhance the productivity of the organizations. The framework conditions must be designed to ensure that networks are protected, remote control is possible and security systems retain their integrity so that holistic digital solutions can be decisively established and used.
We will discuss which technical, commercial and political challenges are relevant in the field of cyber security and essential elements of the rail transportation and mobility infrastructure to improve logistical performance.
