The PhysICAL project will create the basis for exploiting the existing potential of logistical structures. To this end, rigid chains will be broken and replaced by flexible, cooperative and open networks. At the same time, digitization and Logistics 4.0 will be driven forward, because only by exchanging the necessary information will it be possible to make the logistics chain as efficient as possible and reduce any inefficiencies that may occur due to a lack of information. PhysICAL therefore focuses on providing open tools that enable horizontal and vertical digital networking between the players in a transport chain and in the logistics network.

Until 2024, the project partners will demonstrate that cooperative logistics brings economic advantages to shippers and the transport industry in Austria and also ecological and socio-economic benefits to Austrian and European society.
