With road freight traffic continuing to grow on our roads, access to and from the UK’s logistics hubs is becoming a significant congestion and air quality issue. By combining truck guidance, intelligent parking, yard routing, gate automation with network demand knowledge, Siemens has successfully implemented an integrated logistics solution in Duisport, Germany which decreases congestion and improves overall access to the port. Providing integrated solutions across the traffic network can provide significant environmental, journey time and cost savings.
By local authorities and logistics hubs working together to improve access and reduce congestion at logistics hubs, both they and freight operators can benefit. Working together, the solution can be flexible and economical, whilst maximizing operational gains for both. Local authorities benefit operationally and commercially from the infrastructure needed to reduce traffic and improve hub operations and logistics hubs benefit from enhanced, streamlined freight handling as well as any data on the traffic situation in surrounding areas that can be forwarded to their information and freight guidance systems. Through close collaboration, hubs can learn and influence traffic congestion reduction projects run by the local council that improve traffic flow and journey time through the city enabling logistics hubs and city councils to reach their objectives to transport goods or people efficiently.
