Smart logistics and cost-effective transportation

EuroPruning aims to develop an integrated concept where location and quality allow a wise decision tool to support decisions for logistic operators and transport companies. A smart-box is being developed to be installed in trucks, connected to the central information system, which be able to predict quality depending on resource and weather conditions. Farmers, drivers, owners of storage centres and logistic operators will be able to enter the system for up-dating. GPS best route is integrated in the smart-box tool to reduce decision taking efforts and transport costs
