It systematically analyses current processes and systems, produces new innovative concepts for processes and technologies, and demonstrates all these in a set of 2 world scale Demonstrators covering 4 supply chain corridors. Its “view”, analyses, and recommendations fall in the following four areas thus ensuring a fully comprehensive coverage of the call subject:

1.Innovation / Technology
2.Commercial / market issues
3.Business / organisational issues

- Develop compliant application of B2B and B2A container security data solutions with international Customs operations.
- Develop a neutral approach and service platform for secure and interoperable data communications.
- Define added value services and chain visibility enabling techniques for fulfilling operational requirements of the actors

- Assess large applicability of the above-mentioned project solutions by considering costs and benefits
