INTERMODAL GLOBAL DOOR-TO-DOOR CONTAINER SUPPLY CHAIN VISIBILITY

Objective

Main challenges facing today’s international intermodal door to door container transport system are logistics efficiency and security which may lead to contradictory business strategies. However, a safe, secure and efficient intermodal transport system is a common goal of all the participants in the supply chain. INTEGRITY will reconcile these challenges and link all elements of the supply chain through accurate, reliable, timely, value adding tracking and status data thus enhancing trade facilitation through the use of high quality, neutral, sophisticated equipment, including scanning equipment in ocean ports, whilst remaining accessible to all eligible stakeholders, large and small. INTEGRITY will develop procedures and technologies allowing for supply chain visibility, security and predictability. Based on consensus, the project partners (3PLs, cargo owners, logistics companies, research organisations, Customs Authorities, technology companies, IT developers, (inland) terminal operators) will guarantee a successful implementation in a real environment. INTEGRITY will validate targeted and verifiable benefits through real operational business and customs operations in door to door supply chains in the major trade corridor of China to the EU via the ports of Yantian, Rotterdam and Felixstowe, using all modes of transports within the EU to various destinations. INTEGRITY is embedded into international initiatives e.g. from World Customs Organization (WCO), EU/China Customs project supported by DG TAXUD, e-Customs project, Freight Logistics Action Plan of DG TREN and to intermodal initiatives like EIRAC. It will also be combined with the AEO concept and scanning/monitoring technology and will support the “trust but verify” approach. INTEGRITY will raise the standard for door-to-door container chains by providing high quality and integrity information. Its validation and demonstration will verify the benefits for all current and future, big or small players.
