e-Freight 2012

Event date


Increasing volumes and growing societal demands for security and sustainability have created challenges for international freight transport and logistics chains striving to improve their efficiency and visibility. A key determinant of efficiency and visibility in freight transport and logistics is the capability to draw maximum benefit from information and communication technologies. In this, e-Freight denotes the vision for a paper-free, electronic flow of information associating the physical flow of goods with a paperless trail built by Information and Communication Technologies.

The 2012 e-Freight conference will be organised by EC funded projects all studying and creating solutions for the e-Freight areas of information exchange in planning, monitoring, invoicing, compliance and reporting for secure mulitmodal freight transport. These projects will also present themselves and their results on the conference.
