Route planning for intelligent long-distance transport with alternative drives

At the beginning of May 2023, the research project “DRivE – Data-based route planning in road freight transport with different energy supply technologies” was launched with a press conference in Munich. The aim of the project is to make it easier for freight forwarders to switch to environmentally friendly trucks in long-distance transport. To this end, the partners involved are developing and testing a route planning system based on real-time data from vehicles and refueling/loading infrastructure. In conjunction with the MANSIO transport system, which is based on trailer transfers, this should also enable environmentally friendly long-distance transports with heavy trucks.
