On 14th March 2013 the 9th International workshop GUF dedicated to the use of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) services in freight logistics applications was held in Prague. GUF workshops represent a Czech initiative which assembles end users of GNSS applications. Through the mediation of GUF Workshops the participants are involved in technical discussion with European institutions responsible for the development of satellite navigation – European Commission, European GNSS Agency and European Space Agency.

The GUF workshop „GNSS for Optimising Logistic” is organised by the Ministry of Transport of the Czech Republic under the support of GSA. The expected participants are from the area of Public Sector, Railway, Road and Logistics Operators, Freight Forwarding Companies, Industry and Academia. The objective of this workshop is to formulate and set up the recommendations for further deployment of satellite navigation systems in the freight logistics sector.

The seminar is divided into the following three basic sections:

  • International/European Strategy and Framework for GNSS in the freight logistics;
  • What solutions are available now;
  • End Users expectations and needs.

General GUF Workshops objectives:

  • Workshops are designed to formulate common standpoints and recommendations to end-users, which should be taken into account in the development of satellite navigation systems and their implemen­tation in practice.
  • The main objectives of the workshops are not only a presentations of current trends and technical capabi­lities of satellite systems for specific regions, but also defining the needs and requirements of end users for future GNSS satellite navigation systems, primarily for the future European system Galileo.
  • Initiate the discussions to define requirements and improvements for future services guaranteed by Gali­leo, which the current satellite navigation systems do not provide.

Final programme is available here.

Conclusions and recommendations from the workshop can be found here.

Presentations from the workshop are available here. (Presentation "Artes application activities for the benefit of the logistic sector by Michele Castorina" is available (for workshop participants) on request at vaclav.nesladek@mdcr.cz)
