Project Description

CORE will demonstrate how a powerful and innovative Consistently Optimised REsilient ecosystem implementation, integrating interoperability, security, resilience and real-time optimisation can produce cost effective, fast and robust solutions that will guarantee the efficient and secure transit of goods through the worldwide Global Supply Chain system.

CORE will show how protecting and securing the Global Supply Chain, and reducing its vulnerability to disruption (whether caused by natural disasters, terrorism or other forms of undesirable or illegal activity), can be done while guaranteeing the promotion of a timely and efficient flow of legitimate commerce through the European Union (EU) and other nations around the world. CORE will demonstrate that this can be done while at the same time offering tangible benefits to involved stakeholders (transaction, transport, regulatory and financial operators), thus facilitating its adoption by commercial entities.

CORE will address in an integrated and stakeholder-friendly way three main areas:

a. End-to-end Supply Chain Security fostering standardisation, harmonisation and mutual recognition;

b. Controlled global visibility of security risks and other supply chain threats and their impact on supply chain flows around the world;

c. Real-time Lean Agile Resilient Green Optimised supply chain solutions offering a highly innovative approach to designing supply chains resilient (in real-time) to major disturbances caused by high impact events Furthermore the results of CORE will help the EU (and other countries) introduce changes to Customs policy which strike a balance between public and business interests, within reasonable regulatory constraints.

The CORE project will include 10 demonstrators that will validate the applicability and benefits of the CORE approach in representative operating scenarios characteristic of the global supply chain. ZLC is taking a leading role in 3 of these demonstrators:

1) BSH demonstrator will develop a secure and efficient port-hinterland connection for a containerized supply chain to show how visibility and better data quality can lead to improved operational efficiency, reduced variability in lead times, improved resilience and better risk monitoring and control.

2) DHL demonstrator will show the use and benefits of a Security control tower, including real-time tracking of time-sensitive shipments and advanced security control measures.

3) P&G demonstrator will prove the use and benefits of a prototype for temperature control and monitoring in sea containers that has a significantly lower cost and carbon footprint than regular solutions.
