AEROFLEX

16033
From 2017 to 2021
The overall objective of the AEROFLEX project is to develop and demonstrate new technologies, concepts and architectures for complete vehicles for long distance road transport.  This includes optimised aerodynamics, powertrains and safety systems, as well as flexible and adaptable loading units with advanced interconnectedness contributing to the vision of a ‘physical internet’- an open global logistics system where containers, terminals and transport are being shared. The optimal matching of novel vehicle concepts and infrastructures is highly important, requiring the definition of smart infrastructure access policies for the next generation of trucks, load carriers and road infrastructure.
The outcome of the project will support the 30 % efficiency improvement target for end-to-end logistics by 2030, as set by the EU Alliance for Logistics Innovation through collaboration in Europe (ALICE).

TML’s role will be to help discover the market potential for these innovative vehicles by collecting and analysing data on road freight transport in Europe, including sources such as Eurostat, ETISplus, TEN-T Corridor studies, national statistics, etc.
