The port of Piraeus has become member of FENIX, the European FEderated Network of Information eXchange in LogisticsThe Greek pilot site was presented last week and is expected to facilitate and accelerate a number of procedures.

Customs clearance, that used to take up to six hours, will be reduced to 20-30 minutes, bringing financial and environmental benefits.

The FENIX project creates three main benefits for the transport and logistics sector in Greece:

– Implements the guidelines of the European Union, as formulated by the Digital Transport & Logistics Forum (DTLF), for the first integrated, pan-European digital information and data exchange network in transport and logistics,

– Develops digital services that improve the operation of the transport and logistics sector in Greece, yielding significant reduction of red tape and congestion, easier traffic management, etc.

– Develops the Hellenic Transport and Logistics Observatory to be a reference platform for the entire Greek transport and logistics ecosystem, improving the position of Greek services in the European market.

The technical meeting-demonstration of the Greek pilot site took place on May 25, 2022 at the Freight Station of the Port of Piraeus with the presence of the Deputy Minister of Infrastructure and Transport, Mr. Papalos

About FENIX

FENIX Network aspires to become an example of facing supply chain challenges and how standards can solve them to achieve interoperability, by identifying gaps and solving them.

There are 43 partners from 11 European countries in FENIX who are representing the logistics community of shippers, logistics service providers, mobility infrastructure providers, cities, and authorities.

11 pilot sites will roll out in 9 European countries.

FENIX will develop the first European federated architecture for data sharing serving the European logistics community of shippers, logistics service providers, mobility infrastructure providers, cities, and authorities in order to offer interoperability between any individual existing and future platforms.

The idea of FENIX comes from the work and recommendations of the European Commission’s Digital Transport and Logistic Forum (DTLF) to create a viable and valid federative network of platforms as enabler for Business to Administration (B2A) and Business to Business (B2B) data exchange and sharing by transport and logistics operators.
