|D2D will demonstrate how to build and use (in a number of real cases) integrated management and communication systems for door-to-door intermodal transport chains. These chains will also be enhanced with "smart" technologies and equipment for further improvements. The aim is to show solutions that could be used by any operator (shipper/forwarder) responsible for an intermodal chain or parts of it, without having to make major changes to relevant information systems already in use. Open architecture and standardised interfaces are to be used to promote interoperability with legacy systems and with commercial information providers. The goal is to provide a tool for managing intermodal transport chains on a European as well as on a global level and to design a supporting tracking and tracing system, which can be commercially exploited in different settings.
