The Physical Internet Concept
The Physical Internet concept aims to get freight flows and logistics services as accessible and connected as information and services are over internet in both global and last mile scopes. The Physical Internet (PI, π) has opened a paradigm-breaking field encompassing the interconnectivity and interoperability of smart logistics networks, transportation systems, manufacturing systems and supply chains, enabling seamless open asset sharing and flow consolidation on a massive scale.
It aims to ease the way physical objects are moved, deployed, realized, supplied, designed, and used all around the world to improve by an order-of magnitude the overall performance in terms of economic, environmental and societal efficiency and sustainability.
