AIDA-F - Potential of interdisciplinary approaches for organizational innovations in freight transport
Starting out from the programme goals and specified logistic trends the AIDA-F study aimed to identify possible approaches in order to activate potential for interdisciplinary interactions and to anticipate their importance for tommorrow´s goods transport. To this end, it carved out the areas of intervention for organisational innovation: adapting the system architecture of goods mobility, smart use of technologies and integral methods of recording, analysing and optimising freight movements.
Combined transport (CT) is an environmentally sensible and politically desired traffic, which is struggling with cost problems due to complicated supply chains. The intention of this study includes a redesign of the transport and business processes, the compatibility of interfaces (with orientation towards homogenization and standardization) for the individual actors and an adapted technological development of intermodal transport containers (containers, SAL, WAB).
RAKO-Donaukanal analyses how urban freight transport can be organsised in a sustainable way by using a combination of urban waterways and cargo bikes. A boat is used to transport goods along the Donaukanal into the city centre and cargo bikes take over the last mile distribution.
An intensive discussion about freight transport in cities is ongoing since the 1980ies. The originally chosen city logistic approaches investigated and propagated isolated transport consolidations within freight transport centres. Today, solutions have to focus on a much wider approach. GöMoS takes this into consideration.
The project RTM-O aimed the development of a capacity/management software for the digitally coordinated supply chain, from the handover point of the shipping customer to the acceptance point of the recipient.
EFLOG - Potential of the services of new vehicle technologies to impact on the offerings of logistics service providers
The purpose of the study was to link the performance obtained from respective drive technologies, which are in various stages of their technological development up to ready-to-use models, of utility vehicles to the services offered by logistics providers and freight carriers to their customers.
The R&D service investigates the effects of Industry 4.0 on the transport and logistics sector both from a practical and a scientifically based perspective, taking special consideration of Austria’s external relationships. The investigation is intended to supply a suitable basis on which to elaborate different handling and strategy recommendations for RTI and transport policy.
KoLaMBra – Development of an integrated organizational concept for a cooperative last- mile logistics branch
The project developed a "matching platform" for the logistics industry, i.e. a kind of partner exchange for the urban transport of goods.
The investigation „INCOM-F“ identified the interfaces per se and subsequently (industry-) specific RTI competencies at the respective interfaces between the transport of goods and logistics in austria.
The study eComTraf analysed the impacts of the relation between consumer needs, the offers of online retailers and the CEP (courier-express-parcel) service industry on the development of the overall transport system.
The main aim in the project NAHTRANSPORT is to develop a system for non-motorized transport of goods and the associated creation of suitable components, for optimization of last-mile transport of goods to the customers homes.
CinderRailer – Network of polygonal transport for the combination of slag and gypsum transport with the same containers
The project involved developing innovative logistics chains in rail transport for bulk goods such as granulated slag, gypsum, gravel and substitute fuels, which has previously ruled out the use of the same equipment.
