Efficient and Integrated Transport Processes
Purpose and goal
Identify and analyze potential for developing and harmonising of administrative processes, business integration and integration of business processes between forwarders, manufacturing industries and government in order to increase transport efficiency. All done taking notice of new requirements within the field of transport security and environmental aspects. This could then be realised by developing new business integration models and new solutions for the exchange of B2B data including IT support.
Results and expected effects
In terms of new knowledge and understanding the project will lead to: New knowledge on future requirements on transport processes and business integration Workshops and seminars Improved knowledge base at regional, national and international competence platforms/centres Business related results: New business integration models and new business models that could be used buy all parties, forwarders and their customers Information models for transport process, including generic EDI specifications Concepts, definitions and tools for evaluation of environmental related parameters in connection with sourcing and follow up of transports and logistics services New implementations of applications for handling of transport security related information
