Effective trailer transport operations: using information sharing
Journal article, 2011
The purpose of this paper is to present and validate a model for
information sharing, enabling effective trailer transport operations. It is based
on an extensive information requirements study involving all the actors in an
international transport setup. An in-depth study of the involved actors was
carried out and the requirements of effective transport operations were
extracted through interviews, observations and transport document studies.
This paper provides findings from both an in-depth study of a transport setup
and a model on information sharing that has been practically tested and
validated in an industrial pilot project implementation.
