Big Data for Freight Transport and Logistics Policy Making

Big Data for Freight Transport and Logistics Policy Making

SDG: 09 - Industry, Innovation & Infrastructure11 - Sustainable Cities & Communities

This project introduces substantive technical developments upon current proof of concept applications to human mobility. The CDR trace of road freight (urban delivery truck, long distance, port drayage) is distinct from that of a pedestrian or a taxi driver, and can be automatically classified (combining algorithmic and field knowledge on transportation). Hence such critical project and reform information as freight O-D matrices can be estimated from Big data, instead of costly field survey that cannot be replicated on a regular basis. The team will pilot the concept in countries where we have a strong engagement in the policy areas (transportation infrastructure, logistics, urban transport), and we have arrangements or likelihood to get the data: Indonesia (Jakarta), Brazil (Rio) and potentially Morocco.
