Trapeze Group Europe, a Modaxo company, is one of a group of partner companies chosen to support the CargoSurfer project, funded by the mFUND funding program.

Building a digital logistics platform for the optimisation of unused loading capacity in passenger and goods transport

Products from the rural area must find their way to customers and buyers. In this respect, logistics are a decisive prerequisite for economic success. However, due to small quantities of goods and long distances, classic delivery systems are usually not profitable or very efficient in rural areas.

The CargoSurfer Project focuses on making better use of all players loading capacity by utilising vehicles that are already on the road in the region on a regular basis. The aim is to make use of all underutilised vehicles in the region, including those of regional producers, retailers, and service providers, (such as publishers, driving and delivery services, and logistics providers), as well as bus and regional train journeys outside of peak hours and many other previously unused transportation capacities.

This has been shown by two feasibility studies already completed in cooperation with the associations Gutes aus Waldhessen e. V., SPESSARTregional e. V., and cantus Regionalbahn.

The CargoSurfer project aspires to build a digital logistics network that connects freight service providers, carriers, and receivers to allocate residual capacity for local goods transportation. A system of regional bundling points will be coupled with the logistics platform (so-called microhubs).

An initial test of the logistics platform is planned for spring 2023 in the Main-Kinzig district and in the region of North Hesse. This will be followed by improvements and extensions.
