Real-time cargo monitoring for global supply chain

Researchers attempt to establish integrated information network combining data from 'intelligent' devices, non-proprietary sensor network and business integration systems.

IBM and Maersk Logistics, of the A.P. Moller-Maersk Group, announced an initiative to bring real-time, enhanced visibility to global supply chain operations by improving the quality of container tracking, thus providing greater security for transported goods.

Researchers aim to provide global supply chain stakeholders with on-demand access to real-time, transport-related data. The solution supports the implementation of the novel World Customs Organization's (WCO) Framework of Standards to Secure and Facilitate Global Trade.
