Subject(s): Abstract: Referat saknasAbstract: It is stated in the ITS action plan that the need to accommodate rising traffic volumes while promoting environmental sustainability and energy efficiency, calls for innovative transport and traffic management solutions. Moreover, seamless and dynamic traffic and transport management are beneficial for long-distance and urban freight transport and at the same time improve co-modality. A central concept for achieving this is eFreight, including information on the location and condition of transported goods is made available on-line in a secure way. It may also include other supply-chain activities such as the exchange of content-related data for regulatory or commercial purposes, using technologies such as RFID and satellite positioning. This is a major step towards the realization of “intelligent goods”, meaning that goods become self-, context- and location-aware, as well as connected to a wide range of information services. In addition to reduce administration connected to freight transports, eFreight has a great potential to support more sustainable (with focus on efficient, robust and environmental friendly) transports. However, this can typically only be achieved by connecting eFreight with different ITS applications delivered as services. Hence the problem is how to achieve efficiency (in addition to administrational efficiency) by using eFreight. The purpose is to identify and make suggestion of content and operation of ITS-applications connected to eFreight in order to achieve more efficient and environmental friendly transports. The method of this project includes looking from both a user perspective (including commercial and public organisations), i.e., what is the demand of services, and from service supplier perspectives, i.e., what type of services can be provided. This includes ITS application for traffic management as well as logistic services. Services supporting co-modality, urban freight and paperless transports are of particular relevance. There is a need to take into account related concepts such as intelligent goods and different logistics cooperation/interaction frameworks, such as Arktrans, MSI-Group and Freightwise in the identification process. These related concept will mainly be handled by reviewing of documentation and desktop research of identifying the commonalities with the eFreight concept. This project will use knowledge from and be coordinated with “Intelligent goods and business systems” (includes examples of local decision making close to the cargo) and “Mobil IT for cargo on the road” (includes a multitude identified services connected to road user charging systems) Freightwise (includes an interaction framework), Intelligent Infrastructure - Enabling the Efficient Freight Transportation of the Future, and Smartfreight etc.
