CORE will demonstrate how a powerful and innovative Consistently Optimised REsilient ecosystem implementation, integrating interoperability, security, resilience and real-time optimisation can produce cost effective, fast and robust solutions that will guarantee the efficient and secure transit of goods through the worldwide Global Supply Chain system. 

CORE will show how protecting and securing the Global Supply Chain, and reducing its vulnerability to disruption (whether caused by natural disasters, terrorism or other forms of undesirable or illegal activity), can be done while guaranteeing the promotion of a timely and efficient flow of legitimate commerce through the European Union (EU) and other nations around the world. CORE will demonstrate that this can be done while at the same time offering tangible benefits to involved stakeholders (transaction, transport, regulatory and financial operators), thus facilitating its adoption by commercial entities.



The supply chain unchained!

The European Shippers' Council and CLECAT held a successful final CORE event in Brussels on 11 April 2018. Through CORE, a four-year and 50 million Euro project, in which 70 partners collaborated, Secured, Trusted, and Transparent Trade Lanes are becoming a reality.

Shippers, freight forwarders, transport providers, and authorities came together to demonstrate the tangible outcomes of the CORE project and how these can positively impact the future in delivering trusted and transparent supply chains. 

Please find the programme here.

The report and presentations from the final CORE event are available here

Key Objectives

CORE will address in an integrated and stakeholder-friendly way three main areas:

  1. End-to-end Supply Chain Security fostering standardisation, harmonisation and mutual recognition;
  2. Controlled global visibility of security risks and other supply chain threats and their impact on supply chain flows around the world;
  3. 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.
