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.
Under the name DALI (Data Science for Logistics Innovation), concrete data science applications in the supply chain are realised based on business cases. DALI is a testing ground for datafication in the logistics sector of the southern Netherlands to a higher level, thus making the industry future-proof. The project is committed to developing knowledge-intensive logistics (smart logistics): devising, developing, demonstrating and applying new logistics methods. All aimed at higher added value, more efficient handling of goods flows and maintaining our international market position.
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 potentials 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 can be mined 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 on which real-time data from relevant sensors and sources such as cameras, entrance gates and traffic lights will be made available nationally to end-users such as drivers and can be used 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 and the field of work, based on 18 business cases over the next three years. This is done to accelerate and strengthen the 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.
