Data is becoming increasingly important in our society and economy. However, the supply chain sector still has to take steps to utilise all available data.
Valuable information only arises when we process, relate and analyse the data. New insights emerge by exposing trends, patterns and mutual relationships in data.
Data Science for Logistics Innovation
Under the name DALI (Data Science for Logistics Innovation), a group of companies realise concrete data science applications in the supply chain based on business cases. DALI is a testing ground to bring the use of data in the logistics sector of the southern Netherlands to a higher level. The ultimate goal is to make the logistics industry future-proof.
Developing knowledge-intensive logistics
In this project, the team aims to develop knowledge-intensive logistics (smart logistics) by:
- and applying new logistics methods.
All these developments aim to add value, create more efficient handling of goods flows and maintain the Dutch international market position.
Working together in DALI
Eighteen companies, including Monotch, participate in the DALI testing ground with their business case. The business cases show that the supply chain offers a lot of potential to use data. The information translation provides cost benefits, more turnover and optimal use of people and resources. Not only for the partners in the DALI project but also for the business community and knowledge institutions that are not part of this project.
Unlocking and using data must result in strategic insight, demand prediction and planning input. In other words, a gold mine of logistics data that we can mine together with the DALI partners.
TLEX data for the logistics sector
The aim of the cooperation project within DALI with, among others, the port company and the province of Noord-Brabant is the further development of Monotch’s data technology. In DALI, Monotch strives for an automated data platform. In this platform, real-time data from relevant sensors and sources such as cameras, entrance gates and traffic lights will be available nationally to end-users such as drivers. They can use this for customers of the port authority.
In the DALI (Data Science for Logistics Innovation) project, work is being carried out on developing generic instruments for knowledge institutions. This will be done in 18 business cases over the next three years. All this aims to accelerate and strengthen supply chain data fixing for the south of the Netherlands. The project is partly financed by a contribution from the European Regional Development Fund in OPZuid and by a contribution from the Region Deal in Central and West Brabant.
