Freight Information in the Railway Environment

Objective

The FIRE project aims at building up a prototype of an information service for rail/based international freight transportation. The service is designed to respond to the needs of the users of the European rail-based freight transportation system: the Transportation / Logistic Service Providers using the rail infrastructure - through the Rail Operators - for transporting goods from one place to another throughout Europe.

The objectives are:

1) To define a general FIRE architecture and function set;
2) To define a subset architecture and functions to be implemented during the FIRE project's two-year timescale;
3) To set up a 6-month on-field testing of a prototype information service (Pilot Service) based on the subset architecture and functions defined above.

The demonstration sites will be in the North-South Trans European Freight Freeways in Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland.
