Expected Impact

 

1. The GET Service platform will demonstrably reduce CO2 emission of transportation, by developing services that enable ‘green’ planning of transportation and route planning. Particular usage scenarios that will be covered by the planning services include co-modal planning and efficient planning of resources to reduce empty miles. The ability to support these scenarios is known in the transportation sector to be a potential solution to the CO2 emission problem. Specific tasks are planned to validate the potential of the platform to reduce CO2 emission.

2. The GET Service platform aims to make European transportation more efficient, using optimized planning algorithms. Since the profit margins in this sector are very small, improvements in efficiency have a strong impact on the competitiveness of the transport industry as a whole.

3. Business models will be developed for monetizing (the services provided by) the GET Service platform. Particular focus will be on information provisioning services and services for green transportation planning. During the development of these business models, the markets that benefit from the GET Service platform and its services will be determined.
