A Common Framework Freightwise, Euridice and SMARTFREIGHT

The European Commission is supporting several research and development projects related to freight management. Some of them have, among other things, more efficient and reliable exchange of information as their main objectives. The specification of such exchange may have organizational, semantic, technical and national barriers. The approach chosen by different projects reflect this. If the different projects shall be able to deliver results that are complementing each other, there is a need for something common that all the projects can relate to. This paper will present the work of three projects focusing on freight transport. The earliest of them, Freightwise, has developed a multimodal framework for exchange of information within the freight sector. The paper shows how the Euridice and the SMARTFREIGHT projects relate to the same framework, and how this common framework benefits both the separate projects, as well as it also contribute to fulfill more overall political goals as set by the European Commission.
