Abstract

This paper explores the use of ICT technologies in good traceability. In fact, it presents a solution for real-time tracking and fleet management which can be applied in the transportation of manufacture equipment. The system can manage routes and operations and provides onboard support to the carriers, enabling an agile response to incidences happened during transport. We describe both through its technical implementation as a test case used to validate the basic functionality of a first developed prototype. Furthermore, some future works are presented in order to improve some capacities of the solution.
