More and more private individuals as well as companies are currently switching to vehicles with electric drives. The associated changeover poses two major challenges for the logistics industry. On the one hand, the vehicle fleet must be converted accordingly, and on the other hand, a practical charging infrastructure, or short CIS, must be built.
One of the goals of the "Transportation in Charge" project is to implement the planning and use of CIS at the level of business parks in such a way that companies have a practical, cost-efficient, and safe option for charging their vehicles according to demand and reducing the costs for their infrastructure. Through several field tests with partners from the logistics sector in real operation, the approach is being investigated to increase the utilization of the charging infrastructure and thereby make the use of funding for this transformation process more efficient. In parallel, the practical suitability of the vehicles available so far for the various logistics tasks of the practical partners is being tested.
For the realization of CIS on the level of industrial estates, it is necessary to understand industrial estates as systems, to analyze and connect different levels of consideration to identify possible synergies. For this purpose, the project "Transportation in Charge" analyses the perspectives, requirements, and individual challenges of the stakeholders involved in this transformation process in business parks.
The Chair of Communication Science takes on the empirical investigation of the public perception and acceptance of all stakeholders involved, because the success of the transformation depends not least on the consideration of the requirements of the stakeholders.
