As set out in the European Green Deal, the ambition for Europe is to be the first climate-neutral continent in the world by 2050. This will be achieved with a two-step approach designed to reduce CO2 emissions by 50%, if not 55%, by no later than 2030.
We are in high need and pressure to move to a paradigm in which we can do more with less. Our aim is to avoid waste and use all type of resources and capabilities efficiently towards sustainability.

Said Francois Regis Le Tourneau, ALICE Chair and Corporate Supply Chain Standards and Prospective Director at L'ORÉAL

In parallel to the development of lower and zero tailpipe emission vehicles and low emission energy, it is fundamental to leverage opportunities for increased logistics efficiency. We envision large gains and benefits to all stakeholders by doing more with less in the freight and transport industry. The existing idle capacity of assets in all modes of transport and storage could be better utilised, and flows could be managed in a more consolidated way using and combining transport modes and other logistics assets smartly.
This roadmap develops the Physical Internet Concept to support the Implementation of the Zero Emissions Logistics 2050 Roadmap delivered in 2019 and building on the Truly Integrated Transport System for Sustainable and Efficient Logistics delivered in 2016.

The publication of this roadmap concludes a journey that started at the International Physical Internet Conference in Groningen in 2018 and the publication of the Roadmap towards zero emissions logistics in 2019. As Alice made decarbonization of logistics its main objective it was important to underline how Physical internet was still central.
In fact Physical Internet is now a core strategy to achieve the main end: A logistic industry enabling a sustainable human ecosystem on Earth. The Physics and chemistry of Greenhouse gases is clear: whatever we will be able to do in the next 10 years is key to stop the warming trend. So while we badly need research in new technologies built around sustainable energy sources, the real innovative heavy lifting must be done now by counting mostly on current infrastructure and technological assets.
How? With the much better supply chain management concepts that Physical Internet enables.

For about 25 years now I am active in the fascinating world of supply chain. I’ve looked at it from the perspective of cargo-owners and, more recently, from the one of Inland Waterway Transport. And regardless of the angle I take, I am convinced that the Commissions’ ambition regarding substantial Modal Shift and Zero-Emmission cannot materialise without adopting and implementing the ideas and principles of the Physical Internet; any stakeholder you can think of will benefit from it. The ideas and principles? They are mostly common sense! Concerning implementation: technologies and tools to build on are available.
So, what are we waiting for to roll it all out ?

The Physical Internet Concept can be applied in different logistics and supply chain domains including urban logistics.

We need to be ready to share when needed and create open collaboration frameworks between companies and with cities. In the urban domain, Physical Internet concepts will help companies to address stricter access regulations and low/zero emission vehicles standards to avoid pollution and congestion in a cost effective way. Physical Internet may overcome potential trade-offs between the accessibility of goods and services, quality of life and environmental aspects achieving less kms travelled to deliver the same amount of goods. This concern is growing as the surge of e-commerce, which is creating a significant increase in freight traffic flows in cities that if well-organized could indeed save people related traffic. Physical Internet applications in the city context will benefit citizens, cities, and companies [2]

[1] A Physical Internet builder is a company, a government, a R&D or a civil society organization supporting ALICE Physical Internet roadmap implementation through particular actions, projects, programmes, solutions or other initiatives. ALICE will connect Physical Internet builders with other builders and ALICE network to support and speed up.
