IHATEC research project EMP 4.0

The new digitization project in logistics

Since August 2017, DAKOSY has been working together with its consortium and associated partners on the IHATEC research project EMP - Export Management Platform 4.0.

The establishment of an internet-based cloud with all export-related information at a central location will provide a high degree of planning security and transparency for all legitimated players. Following the ideas of Logistic 4.0, the goal is to achieve integrated planning, steering, execution, supervision and coordination of the whole transport chain. The project focuses on the complete export process chain from the sender to the destination port.

EMP 4.0 is a consortium project within the framework of the subsidy program for Innovative Port Technologies (IHATEC), funded by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI).

The project supervisor is TÜV Rheinland Consulting GmbH. In addition to DAKOSY Datenkommunikationssystem AG, which holds the lead management position, DB Cargo AG and Kühne + Nagel (AG & Co.) KG are the consortium partners. Well-known representatives from the involved sectors (freight forwarders, carriers and transport service providers) as well as several industry associations were won over to become associated partners. This ensures comprehensive coverage of a broad spectrum of players in the export process chain.

The project EMP 4.0 will last until 31 March 2021.
