FREIGHTWISE's overall objective is to support the modal shift of cargo flows from road towards intermodal transport using short sea shipping, inland waterways and rail; facilitated by improved management and exchange of information between large and small stakeholders across all business sectors, transport modes and administrations. The project aims to show that using the project results and concepts (based on the use of open, interoperable systems), competitive intermodal transport operations may effectively be implemented and operated.
Based on extensive experience from development and operation, a harmonised framework (covering managerial and technical aspects) will be established as a basis for development and integration of the relevant, low cost ICT components and associated services supporting competitive intermodal solutions with safe, secure and environmentally friendly transport. FREIGHTWISE is user driven and the development will be based on real business cases across Europe.
