Based on the e-Freight Framework, e-FREIGHT provides software applications, one of them being the Next Generation National Single Window, to demonstrate paperless information exchange associated with the implementation trade and transport regulations. ‘Benefits from the new system are remarkable’, report Experts of Maritime Administration of Latvia and other involved authorities’. The ‘Next Generation Single Window’ will be highly beneficial both to governments and commercial organizations. For governmental institutions it can bring better risk management, improve levels of security and optimisation of resources. Commercial organizations will be able to plan human and financial resources and to reduce costs linked to duplicated reporting, increasing productivity and competitiveness.

CLECAT
The need to decrease emissions, but also to save energy and money, should be at the heart of our companies’ thinking. Luckily these needs – lessening emissions, decreasing the use of energy and saving money – are connected and may respond to the same drivers: not only the logistics service provider, but also the transport user are likely to benefit from savings that may be environmental as well as economical. There is an abundance of possibilities and many companies have already found ways to improve their business models with individual solutions, which have the potential to be developed into best practices. Their experience is the source of the best practice models that benefit and encourage others to do the same. This booklet disseminates best practices to logistics service providers and users.

Implementing the RR is in our view a step into a very extended grey area of uncertainty, both in legal and judicial terms. The risk is that these uncertainties will end up adding a new liability regime side by side with existing ones, thus increasing confusion, rather than mitigating it. Our Members are also concerned that the extreme complication of these rules may lead to a number of local or regional interpretations, which is possible according to the terms laid out in the convention. This would certainly not lead to harmonisation or simplification.

IATA
The vision for IATA e-freight is to create a paper free process, i.e., a process whereby airfreight supply chain does not transport the paper, but there may be a requirement by exception to produce a copy of this paper from an electronic structured format message or a scanned document. The documents that may be required to be produced by exception are the documents in the project scope that support the cargo or goods release/clearance by customs authorities. The aim is to ensure that all transactions between e-freight participants in e-freight live locations will be an e- freight transaction, where the documents in scope for the purposes of cargo or goods release/clearance will not be produced or transported between the shipper, forwarder and carrier. Key benefits include: Lower costs: industry savings of up to US$4.9 billion annually Faster service: a reduced cycle time of an average of 24 hours Greater reliability and accuracy: one-time electronic data entry at point of origin Better visibility: electronic documentations allows for online track and trace functionality
Ontologies and e-Marketplaces.pdf
Chiu, Dickson K.W. et al
ontologies have been developed in various business domains with the recent maturing of the Semantic Web technologies. However, ontology-related researches have largely focused on the facilitation of successful matchmaking but not much on traders’ requirement elicitation and potential negotiations in e-marketplaces. Because ontology provides the key knowledge about the inter-relationships among the issues and alternatives of the traders’ requirements, we show how to elicit trade requirements, alternatives, and tradeoff from an agreed ontology. This facilitates the whole business process of the e-marketplace, from matchmaking, recommendation, to negotiation. We further propose a novel methodology for the elicitation of dependencies among traders’ requirements for the formulation of an effective decision plan. As a result, traders can have a better cognition of their requirements and the overall operations of the e-marketplace can be streamlined
Shipping Law - Documents.pdf
Raphael Brunner
The transport document with the most functions is a bill of lading. The carrier confirms what he received and where and to whom he will deliver the cargo. He is entitled to freight for the shipment of the cargo as negotiated with the shipper in the carriage contract.9 It is not a function of a bill of lading but a consequence of the carriage contract with eventual effects on the consignee of a bill of lading, that the carrier may retain the goods at destination until freight is paid, even if it is due to be paid by the shipper. Many national Acts regarding carriage of goods do mention electronic transport documents and/or electronic bills of lading. However, they generally do accept electronic transport documents as such and do not offer procedures for electronic trade but allow the parties to agree on such procedures. Two examples shall be mentioned. 1999 US Senate Draft COGSA sec. 2 (c) reading: “An electronic bill of lading may be used in accordance with procedures agreed upon by the parties to the bill.” 1992 UK Carriage of Goods by Sea Act sec. 1 (5) empowering the Secretary of State 62 For example UK with the Electronic Communications Act 2000 (EC).

Conference The European Transport Policy Legal and Logistical Impacts Helsinki 2009.pdf
Conference summary
The first Helsinki Conference on European Transport Law took place at the University of Helsinki, in January 2009. More than 90 participants discussed for two days legal and logistical impacts of the new and green European Transport Policy. According to the European Commission, logistics has a key role in ensuring sustainable and competitive mobility in Europe. In order to reach a shift from road based transport to intermodal transport, the Commission has been launching several action plans towards sustainable transport in Europe. Intermodal Transport, carriage of goods performed by two or more modes of transport, under one single contract, is considered a sustainable alternative to the extensive used road transport.
ISO TC 204 Progress 2010.pdf
iso
ISO / TC 204 is responsible for the overall system aspects and infrastructure aspects of intelligent transport systems (ITS), as well as the coordination of the overall ISO work programme in this field including the schedule for standards development, taking into account the work of existing international standardization bodies. TC204/WG7 Standards efforts has resulted in one published Standard (due for periodic review) and 3 under development at different stages. So far, all the work of WG7 dealt with providing a telematic solution to the implementation of goods movement fleet regulations dealing with safety and security. The purpose is to facilitate the interface between Governments at all levels and the operators, to avoid duplication of equipments on board vehicles, reduce cost of regulatory implementation and management. • IS 17687 1st edition 2007-02-15 Transport Information and Control Systems (TICS) — General fleet management and commercial freight operations — Data dictionary and message sets for electronic identification and monitoring of hazardous materials/dangerous goods transportation • ISO Work Item 24533.Electronic Freight Management (EFM) • ISO Work Item 26683 - Freight conveyance content identification and communication architecture - Application profile • ISO TC 204, SWG 7.4 - PWI 15638 ‘Framework for collaborative telematics applications for heavy vehicles’

Study_2008_ICT and e-Business Impact on Transport.pdf
European Commission, DG Enterprise & Industry
The European Commission, Enterprise & Industry Directorate General, launched the Sectoral e- Business Watch (SeBW) to study and assess the impact of ICT on enterprises, industries and the economy in general across different sectors of the economy in the enlarged European Union, EEA and Accession countries. SeBW continues the successful work of the e-Business W@tch which, since January 2002, has analysed e-business developments and impacts in manufacturing, construction, financial and service sectors. All results are available on the internet and can be accessed or ordered via the Europa server or directly at the SeBW website (www.europa.eu.int/comm/enterprise/ict/policy/watch/index.htm, www.ebusiness-watch.org). This report presents the results of a sector impact study, focusing on electronic business in the transport and logistics services industry. The study describes how companies use ICT for conducting business, and, above all, assesses implications thereof for firms and for the industry as a whole. The findings are based on an international survey of enterprises on their ICT use, case studies and an econometric analysis of the ICT impact on productivity growth in the sector.
ITS 2009 Euridice - SmartFreight- Freightwise.pdf
Dr.ing. Jan Tore Pedersen, Paolo Paganelli, Hans Westerheim
The European Commission is supporting several research and development projects related to freight management. Some of them have, among other things, more efficient and reliable exchange of information as their main objectives. The specification of such exchange may have organisational, semantic, technical and national barriers. The approach chosen by different projects reflect this. If the different projects shall be able to deliver results that are complementing each other, there is a need for something common that all the projects can relate to. In this paper we present the work of three projects focusing on freight transport. The earliest of them, Freightwise, has developed a multimodal framework for exchange of information within the freight sector. The paper shows how the Euridice and the SMARTFREIGHT projects relate to the same framework, and how this common framework benefits both the separate projects, as well as it also contribute to fulfil more overall political goals as set by the European Commission.

The Report contains the following sections: • Section 2 gives an introduction to ELMs and the different structures that exist. • Section 3 considers why an ELM may be introduced into a supply chain, highlighting the benefits and drawbacks from using them. • Section 4 considers the value of introducing an ELM, including some details on costs. • Section 5 presents an implementation process that can be followed, along with a summary of the main requirements for introducing an effective ELM. • Section 6 details case study applications of ELMs, considering both the system requirements and impact on the supply chains. • Appendix A includes contact details for the main case studies presented in this guide
EFreight RoadMap Complete v3.pdf
JTP
The present document “e-Freight Roadmap, Vision, Goals and Implementation” is the result of an initiative launched by the Swedish government as part of its activities during the EU-presidency. The aim is to support the development of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) as a means to improve efficiency and sustainability of the European transport system. The e-Freight Roadmap proposes a number of actions in coordination with initiatives in the Commission and among stakeholders in the transport sector. The time is now ripe for a concerted action to the benefit of Europe and the e-Freight Roadmap outlines an approach for the coming years. The Swedish government relies on the Spanish and the Belgian governments to continue to support the work on e-Freight during their respective presidencies and on the Commission services to put the mechanisms in place which may ensure concrete results for the transport business in Europe.
