Smart Logistics Systems – SLS
Paper in proceedings, 2007
The purpose of this work is to develop a framework for Smart Logistics Systems (SLS). The framework aims at increased precision, reliability and efficiency in transportation execution by improving information exchange and capability of data retrieval from RFID tagged goods and load units. The framework is developed from a requirement analysis based on empirical data collection within a complete logistics setup involving 13 different companies. The work is a part of a large research project aiming at developing a high-end solution for logistics management. The results of the study reveal needs for increased sophistication in collaboration between different partners as the identified problems are mainly due to poor information exchange and lack of process synchronization between the parties.
