Web-based and Mobile Solutions for Collaborative Work Environment with Logistics and Maritime Applications

Objective

The major aim of the proposed activity is to gather and co-ordinate activities in the field of IT- and Communication solutions (Web-services, GPRS and WAP/WML mobile services, simulation, technologies for information systems design, virtual reality) with maritime and logistics applications. The maritime freight route "Baltic Sea feeder ports - Western Europe hub port (Hamburg) - Mediterranean ports - Chinese ports" is selected as the subject of investigation and demonstration. One of the main objectives is devoted to the problems of setting up a collaborative partner pool, which unites 17 organisations from different countries (Germany, U.K., Finland, Greece, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and China) operating within the selected transport route by means of integrating their electronic information resources (databases, information systems, Web-sites and portals) in collaborative work environment. Another important objective is focused on new work methods for the mobile actors in logistics and maritime areas (traders, resellers, railway carriers, shippers, consignees, insurers, agents, forwarders etc.) providing them with advanced mobile services, such as WAP over GPRS, PC-connected Web surfing and mobile e-mail and chatting. The China connection is provided by Chinese consulting (China Harvest Development) and software (Beijing Hope Software) companies. A set of collaborative activities will support the main objectives of the project: definition, organisation and management of joint initiatives; organisation of conferences and workshops; setting up of expert groups; exchange and dissemination of good practice.
