Modelling an information system for goods traceability in a multimodal transport context

Modelling an information system for goods traceability in a multimodal transport context In order to respond to the increasing requirements of the markets' increasingly fluctuating and an increasingly complicated demand, it becomes essential to rationalise and to regulate the physical displacement of the goods from the supply of raw material until the delivery of the end-product towards its final destination. In this sense, a goods traceability solution covering the whole of the stages of multimodal transportation chain can bring a better mastery of goods information and consequently contribute to the mastery of the global supply chain. In this paper, we propose our modelling approach which has lead to the formalisation of a generic model of the goods traceability data, facilitating the coherency setting and the interoperability between the different freight representations associated with each stage of its transport cycle. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Business Performance and Supply Chain Modelling Inderscience Publishers

Abstract

In order to respond to the increasing requirements of the markets' increasingly fluctuating and an increasingly complicated demand, it becomes essential to rationalise and to regulate the physical displacement of the goods from the supply of raw material until the delivery of the end-product towards its final destination. In this sense, a goods traceability solution covering the whole of the stages of multimodal transportation chain can bring a better mastery of goods information and consequently contribute to the mastery of the global supply chain. In this paper, we propose our modelling approach which has lead to the formalisation of a generic model of the goods traceability data, facilitating the coherency setting and the interoperability between the different freight representations associated with each stage of its transport cycle.
