Starting from May 2018, all companies operating within the EU need to comply. Failure to do so can result in penalties of 4% of their worldwide turnover. Despite the urgency of industry adoption, many companies struggle to grasp the concrete impact of the GDPR. Additionally, legal and technological support to implement the GDPR in practice are lacking.

One of the most significant advances in the development of computer science, information and communication technologies is represented by the cyber-physical systems (CPS). They are systems of collaborating computational entities which are in intensive connection with the surrounding physical world and its on-going processes, providing and using, at the same time, data-accessing and data-processing services available on the Internet.
Typically, logistics networks generate billions of new data items on a monthly basis that can be used to help predict potential customer behaviour. Lorries transport thousands of pallets on hundreds of trailers for millions of customers scattered across hundreds of thousands of postcodes. Customers are continuously placing orders with information being generated about what they want to transport, where it will be coming from, where it will be going and what their service requirements are.
