Intelligent Goods in Intelligent Transport Systems

This paper describes a possible way forward for making transport systems for goods more effective, secure, available, reliable, predictive and more environment friendly. The way forward is based on more intelligent goods which implies enabling the goods themselves to carry electronically stored information about the goods concerning content and transport route. Providing wireless communication with the goods along its route and at terminals opens new possibilities for track and trace, management of the goods flows and new possibilities for coupling logistics and value chain management systems together with traffic management systems. This paper describes the major objects forming a transport system for intelligent goods. The paper focuses on the device that is attached to the goods in one or another way, possible data to store in the device and possible functions the device may have in its most advanced version.
