  • November 27, 2013 - 13:00
  • Room 221, Zaragoza Logistics Center

Susana Val, Associate Research Professor and Transport Research Group Manager at ZLC

This presentation shows the necessity of an information exchange system methodology for making port-hinterland intermodal corridors more efficient and how interoperability information systems contribute to this target. Thus, the presentation reflects the pilot that is being designed and developed by the Spanish team, involved in the MED project FUTUREMED. The pilot aims the analysis of the current situation of the port-hinterland in terms of accessibility barriers, information systems used and logistics activities in the corridor. Furthermore, the work needs the compilation of the documentation and operation requirements for every actor involved and also to create a methodology based on these requirements to define an information system model to be finally tested. The result will be an IT operative platform that will enable the information exchange among the corridor actors, which will make the development of a sustainable transport chain feasible and the possibility of being used by others or even being integrated in a transnational transport corridor among the actors involved.
