COOPERATIVE SYSTEM FOR INTERMODAL RAILROAD OPERATIONS

Jukka Hemilä

Abstract

The research project EURIDICE (European Inter-Disciplinary Research on Intelligent Cargo for Efficient, Safe and Environment-Friendly Logistics) focuses on the development of intelligent solutions for the transport sector. The basic concept of EURIDICE is an information services platform centered on the individual cargo item and its interaction with the surrounding environment and the user. EURIDICE has promoted the Intelligent Cargo concept as a future solution for transport sector information needs. The platform will be implemented and tested in eight industrial transport scenarios. This paper looks at one scenario related to intermodal railroad operations. The paper presents the functionalities of the developed cooperative system for intermodal railroad operations and the way end-users can use the system environment in their operations.
