CORE will start by consolidating solutions developed in Reference Projects (Cassandra, CONTAIN, SUPPORT, SAFEPOST, EUROSKY, e-Freight) in each supply chain sector (port, container, air, post).
Implementation-driven R&D will be then undertaken designed to discover gaps and practical problems and to develop capabilities and solutions that could deliver sizable and sustainable progress in supply chain security across all EU Member States and on a global scale.
CORE will respond to the need to maintain or improve supply chain security levels whilst also expanding transport and logistics networks to enable industry throughout the European Union to have effective access to the Single Market and the international market, and will assist in developing systems to facilitate a collaborative approach across the international community of the Global Supply Chain.
CORE will address in an integrated and stakeholder-friendly way three main areas:
End-to-end Supply Chain Security fostering standardisation, harmonisation and mutual recognition;
Controlled global visibility of security risks and other supply chain threats and their impact on supply chain flows around the world;
Real-time Lean Agile Resilient Green Optimised supply chain solutions offering a highly innovative approach to designing supply chains resilient (in real-time) to major disturbances caused by high impact events Furthermore the results of CORE will help the EU (and other countries) introduce changes to Customs policy which strike a balance between public and business interests, within reasonable regulatory constraints.
