Towards a Shared European Logistics Intelligent Information Space

Duration: 01/09/2016 - 31/08/2019

Total funding: EUR 17,719,375


Challenge & Objectives

SELIS is aimed at delivering a ‘platform for pan-European logistics applications’ by:

  • Embracing a wide spectrum of logistics perspectives and creating a unifying operational and strategic business innovation agenda for pan European Green Logistics.
  • Establishing an exceptionally strong consortium of logistics stakeholders and ICT providers, that can leverage EU IP from over 40 projects so as to create proof of concept Common Communication and navigation platforms for pan-European logistics applications in month 18 deployed in 8 living labs (LLs) representing the principal logistics communities.
  • Establishing a research and innovation environment using the LLs to provide data than can be used for discovery of new insights that will enable continuous value creation supporting the large scale adoption of SELIS.

The proposed Shared European Logistics Intelligent Information Space, SELIS, is a network of logistic communities’ specific shared intelligent information spaces termed SELIS Community Nodes (SCN). SCNs are constructed by individual logistics communities to facilitate the next generation of collaborative, responsive and agile green transportation chains. SCNs link with their participants’ existing systems through a secure infrastructure and provide shared information and tools for data acquisition and use, according to a 'cooperation agreement'. Connected nodes, provide a distributed common communication and navigation platform for Pan European logistics applications. Each Node decides what information wishes to publish and what information wants to subscribe to.

The SELIS Community Node (SCN) concept represents the evolution of a longline of research in this area. The fundamental principle is that it provides a ‘lightweight ICT structure’ to enable information sharing for collaborative sustainable logistics for all at strategic and operational levels.

In SELIS, eBOS Technologies developed a set of ICT solutions that aim to provide a global visibility on supply chain and logistics applications leading to an optimisation of the internal and planning procedures of logistics stakeholders. Moreover, eBOS implemented an innovative Risk Assessment module specifically designed for Customs Authorities. The Module will help to speed up the custom clearance processes in ports and reduce unnecessary controls on legitimate trades. eBOS intends to incorporate the new module to its flagship Anti-Money Laundering solution - WiseBOS AML - and expand its client portfolio to European Customs and Port Authorities.
