09:05 Towards a New Public-Private Logistics Data Sharing Architecture for Europe
September 2019 will see the launch of FENIX, the European Federated Network of Information eXchange in LogistiXStudy, involving 43 supply chain and logistics enterprises and over 20 implementation bodies. Born from the European Commission’s Digital Transport and Logistic Forum (DTLF), FENIX will run for 36 months covering all the TEN-T corridors with a €60.6m budget.
The goal of FENIX is to develop the first European federated architecture for data sharing serving the logistics community of shippers, logistics service providers, mobility infrastructure providers, cities, and authorities to provide interoperability between existing and future digital platforms. The concept revolves around cloudbased technology that will motivate increased horizontal collaboration, optimised routing and dynamic re-routing of freight through plug-and-play solutions for supply chain planning and operations. The end goal is a set of integrated services that exploit real-time big data streams for real time awareness and visibility, delivered from the cloud as a service. These services will be based on accurate, reliable and timely information flows and events notifications based on standards and public-private governance. FENIX will also exploit Internet of Things (IoT), satellite navigation and retrospective historical data, by leveraging automated processes and intelligent algorithms to identify opportunities for more enhanced streamlining of routes, customisation of cargo routing combinations, and optimisation of delivery schedules.
09:20 From the Digital to the Physical Internet: A Seamless Future for Freight Logistics?
The Physical Internet (PI) aims to transform the way that goods are handled, transported, stored, packaged and used across the supply chain by applying concepts from internet data to real world shipping processes. The goal is to achive seamless, frictionless freight. PI has become a key element to achieve the vision of the Alliance for Logistics Innovation through Collaboration (ALICE), a European technology platform made up of shippers and logistics service providers, established to develop a comprehensive strategy for research, innovation and market deployment of logistics and supply chain management innovation across Europe.
This session will explain the concept of PI and challenges to turn vision into reality, focusing on the shippers’ perspective across key factors including business and governance models and regulations, barriers and triggers for implementation and future steps to gain endorsement and realisation.

As international supply chain ecosystems continue to grow in complexity and interdepence, risks continue to proliferate – from geo-political and trade issues, to weather-induced disruption, multi-faceted criminal activities, ethical, humanitarian and governance challenges, cyber attacks and more. Understanding the increasingly complex risk matrix and putting robust preventative and response mechaninisms in place across your supply chain networks and ecosystems is crucial to mitigate delays and costs, avoid reputational dangers and ensure the safety of people, products and supply lines.

17:30 Port of Antwerp Waterside Port Tour & Reception Evening
Network with Your Industry Colleagues while Viewing the World’s 2nd Largest Locks
Tour & Reception kindly Hosted by Port of Antwerp
This special 3 hour waterside port tour and reception will show you the sights of Antwerp’s historic and modern maritime infastructure.
You’ll be taken through the port by boat out to the Zandvliet lock and back, with plenty of chance to spot some amazing ships in the canal dock and see the diverse distribution, handling and logistics facilities that have made Antwerp a global maritime hub for containerised trade and commodities of all sorts.
The Zandvliet lock was opened in 1967 and at the time was the world’s largest. The 500m long Berendrecht lock, completed in 1989, is currently the world’s 2nd largest. Located 25 km from the city Antwerp, the two locks connect the Western Scheldt river to the Port of Antwerp.
During the port tour, you’ll get to see how the channel works and view the most impressive entrance into Antwerp harbour.
Port of Antwerp and the Supply Chain & Logistics Summit look forward to welcoming you for an evening of fascinating sights and top class networking over drinks and nibbles.
