Follow-up project

The CASSANDRA project aims to make container security more efficient and effective.

IJSTL special issue on "Container Security and Supply Chain Visibility": Deadline extended

The special issue of the International Journal of Shipping and Transport Logistics (IJSTL) on "Container Security and Supply Chain Visibility" will be published in 2010 and focuses on innovative concepts and visions about how security and optimisation of logistics processes, which create real supply chain visibility, can be obtained in the best possible and acceptable way. Contributions may focus on one issue (e.g. a technological solution) or – preferably - on a complete picture of future procedures. Therefore, the presentation of different scenarios for possible developments and roadmaps is envisaged.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, areas of container security in intermodal supply chains such as:

  • Management of risks and uncertainty
  • Technological security systems (container security devices, scanners, etc.)
  • IT platforms
  • Role of Customs Authorities
  • Future security processes
  • Future processes between industry and administrations, benefits and win-win situations
  • Special requirements of specific trade lanes
  • Cost-benefit analysis

Submitted papers should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. All papers are refereed through a peer review process. A guide for authors, sample copies and other relevant information for submitting papers are available on the website of IJSTL.

Due to several requests, the submission deadline was extended until 31 December, 2009.
