AEGIS, MOSES and ALICE arranged a webinar on cargo unit standardisation

9. November 2021

The EU projects AEGIS and MOSES joined forces together with ALICE and successfully arranged an online webinar on cargo unit standardisation in inland waterways transport and short-sea shipping on November 8th. About 70 people participated in the event!

The questions investigated in this workshop were:

  1.    What types (LoLo/RoRo/other, eg pallets) of loading units are more attractive?
  2.    What about size, any limitations due to autonomy, green policies or intermodality?
  3.    Is cargo unit standardization key for a more efficient cargo handling operational system?
  4.    What are the challenges and what are the solutions that the projects propose?

ALICE and the EU projects AEGIS, MOSES and CLUSTERS 2.0 were presented and there was a very fruitful panel debate following the presentations. The panel consisted of moderator Ørnulf Jan Rødseth (SINTEF Ocean) and the four participants:

  • ALICE: Fernando Liesa
  • AEGIS: Prof. Harilaos N. Psaraftis (DTU)
  • MOSES: Prof. Nikolaos Ventikos (NTUA)
  • CLUSTERS 2.0: Ton Bertens (Van Eck Trailers)
