Background: 

The GALENA project aims at developing a robust Freight Pooling application, i.e. the equipment as well as the information system and the supervision platform needed for the cross supply chain orchestration of a community of shippers involved in freight pooling, particularly in urban areas where many carriers are involved.

Objectives: 

The GALENA application will make use of the key features of EGNOS and GALILEO, coupled with security services in the handset, to enable the different carrier operators willing to join a Mutualized Transportation Community to timestamp, geo-locate, and formalize their trip as well as any events occurring during the shipping. By doing so, the GALENA application will enable to remotely and automatically track and manage - in a secure and non-falsifiable way – along the supply chain the status changes and the liability for goods shipping between the different stakeholders involved in urban freight pooling – thus solving the concerns on quality of service, liability for goods, and flows traceability. GALENA will also improve the logistical performance and reduce the negative impacts associated with the last-mile logistics: congestion, energy consumption and pollutant emissions.
