The EU-funded FREIGHTWISE ('Freightwise management framework for intelligent intermodal transport') project will hold its second annual conference from 1 to 2 December in Prague, Czech Republic.

The conference will first give an overview of the 'FREIGHTWISE Framework' (FWF) for information and communication technology and freight management, followed by a series of workshops to discuss and develop the FWF.

FREIGHTWISE brings together three different sectors:
- transport management: shippers, forwarders, operators and agents;
- traffic and infrastructure management: rail, road, sea, inland waterways;
- administration: customs, border crossing, hazardous cargo, safety and security.
The project aims to further the co-operation between these sectors in order to support a modal shift of cargo flows from road towards intermodal transport.

Conference attendees may also be able to attend the BESTLOG conference on 3 December in Prague without charge. BESTLOG is establishing an exchange platform for the improvement of supply chain management across Europe. At the event, work, case studies and best practices in logistics will be covered.For further information, please visit:
