Interoperability -- Removing Barriers

Freightwise builds on the Norwegian ARKTRANS system framework architecture for the transport sector. One of the main objectives in Freightwise is to establish a framework for efficient co-modal freight transport. The aim is to simplify (or remove the barriers influencing) the interaction between stakeholders, by defining the main roles that need to interact – and the information to be exchanged between them - in order for such activities to be as efficient as possible. The main roles are for the: transport user and transport service provider, which are supported by the Traffic Manager and the transport regulator. Freightwise has also defined a generic specification of a transport service (a transport service description) and a small set of information objects that need to be exchanged between the 4 main roles. Between the transport user and the transport service provider, only 3 information packages are defined: transport service, transport execution plan and transport service status. The main focus in Freightwise is the information exchange between the transport user and the transport service provider. ebXML and UBL are two initiatives that are widely used for information exchange in transport. Surprisingly enough, all current efforts have not contributed to taking cargo from road transport to other modes. The use of the Freightwise results should remedy this.
