Efficient Carbon-reduction and Optimisation of Logistic Operations Generated via Innovative Services, Training and ICT using Cooperative Standards. Ecologistics aims at raising awareness and opportunities for companies to optimize their freight operations by using standardized collaborative ICT tools. The tools developed by Ecologistics will enable an improved data exchange between the actors from different levels of Supply Chain. Currently, large companies and SMEs are not operating at the same information level: SMEs have little time and no internal resources to match their current organization to an international and standardized transport flow. Ecologistics will provide solutions to fill the information gap between large companies and SMEs by promoting a collaborative information network based on a European standard called Electronic Product Code Network (EPC Network), which enables direct connection between people and travelling objects (concept of Internet of Things).
