Innovation in logistics: EU’s Investment in a greener future

CINEA’s recent brochure spotlights SENATOR’s role in sustainable and efficient European freight transport


In the world of freight transport and logistics, the wheels of progress never stop turning. In a rapidly evolving landscape, where the efficient movement of goods is the lifeline of our economies, innovation becomes the driving force. The European Union recognizes this, and through its Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe programs, it has been steadfastly supporting groundbreaking projects in this sector.

One such project, SENATOR, has been making waves, and today, we invite you to explore our contributions in the recently published brochure.

A snapshot of EU-Funded excellence

The new brochure presents a snapshot of a selection of EU-funded freight transport and logistics projects – supported under the EU’s programmes for research and innovation, Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe – and implemented by the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA).

The logistics landscape: challenges and opportunities

Efficient freight and logistics services are the backbone of supply chains that crisscross the European continent, facilitating the smooth flow of goods and materials. This not only fuels economic growth but also sustains the competitiveness of the European economy on the global stage. Over the past decade, the European freight and logistics sector has exhibited robust growth, mirroring global trends. However, with growth come challenges, and the sector is no exception.

Congestion and environmental concerns have emerged as pressing issues. The European Green Deal has set a lofty goal of reducing transport-related GHG emissions by 90% by 2050. Simultaneously, the transport system must ensure safety and resilience, capable of withstanding local, regional, or global disruptions.

A glimpse into SENATOR and more

The brochure offers a sneak peek into a representative sample of these projects, shedding light on their remarkable achievements. You’ll discover innovations in supply chain management, urban logistics, last-mile delivery robots, automated delivery vehicles, and data sharing modeling, among others. These innovations not only enhance efficiency but also pave the way for a more eco-friendly future.

We invite you to delve into the world of SENATOR and other pioneering projects. Together, we can usher in a new era of logistics—one that is sustainable, efficient, and resilient.
