The EURIDICE project has the following main objectives:
- Supporting the interaction of individual cargo items with the surrounding environment and users on the field
- Improving logistic performances through application of the intelligent cargo concept and technologies in the working practices of operators and industrial users
- Developing collaborative business models to sustain, promote and develop an intelligent cargo infrastructure
- Realizing more secure and environment friendly transport chains through the adoption of intelligent cargo to support modal shift and door-to-door inter-modal services
