 Project objective

Shippers and transport companies face an increasingly challenging society. Individuals and businesses expect to get goods delivered faster, more flexible, on time and at low cost. At the same time, the sector is confronted with increasing emission restrictions, congestion, a lack of truck drivers and low profits despite a strong growth in volume driven by e-commerce.

Realtime collaboration between shippers and carriers and digital data sharing holds the key to solving these challenges in a growing market. Current available digital tooling however is often optimized for dedicated parts of the supply chain, lacking interoperability to integrate and communicate within the heterogeneous environment of transport companies, retailers, third parties and customers.

Simacan solves these problems by developing an intelligent data exchange and collaboration platform. Transport operation data is enriched with high quality traffic information, enabling automated, realtime management by exception and communication during transport execution. It allows for integration with existing logistics systems like planning systems, onboard units, driver apps and freight sensors and creates a joint view and intervention options for all stakeholders in the transport execution process.

The Simacan solution revolutionized the Dutch market for transport management of fast-moving consumer goods. It gained market traction with leading retailers and transport companies reaching a market share of 55% in the Dutch Grocery Store supply chain and 80% in Dutch Home Grocery Shopping in the last four years.

This project will bring the Simacan platform from a successful, national product, to a commercially scalable Europe-wide Connected Transport platform worth the name Simacan LINK. With the support of several leading retailers, transport companies and technology partners, Simacan aims to value its research and development over the past years and bring Europe’s freight management to the next level.
