Aspects of Information Management in Road Freight Transport

  • Conference paper

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNTCS,volume 6971)

Abstract

For freight transport (and in particular road freight transport) the availability of a suitable (intra- and inter-organizational) information management is of decisive significance. Therefore, the technical (and organizational) framework as well as the essential instruments will be presented and analyzed. This will be followed by an examination of the operational planning and the operations of the road freight transport where economic factors influence the discussion as well as ecological aspects. It will be illustrated that an intelligent linkage between different elements of the information and communication technology and the automotive engineering as well as with the transport infrastructure leads to a significant improvement regarding the operational processes in road freight transport. This does not only refer to the costs of transport operations but also reflects positive ecological effects and improvements of transport security.
