The CASSANDRA project aims to make container security more efficient and effective.
The project addresses the visibility needs of both business and government in the international flow of containerised cargo by developing a data sharing concept that allows an extended assessment of risks by both business and government.
DP World joins hands with INTEGRITY's IT system SICIS
On Friday 11th June 2010 DP World, one of the worldâ€™s largest terminal operators, and the Consortium of the INTEGRITY project (Intermodal Global Door-to-door Container Supply Chain Visibility) signed a cooperation agreement.
The direct outcome is the participation of DP World already in the project demonstration phase, intending to send terminal data on containers which are monitored during the INTEGRITY demonstration and which are handled in DP World terminals to the neutral IT platform SICIS (Shared Intermodal Container Information System). For this purpose DP World will implement the system interface with SICIS.
Demonstrations which are continuously running since September, 2009 show that SICIS is functioning properly in all parts and that it guarantees improved visibility and security of container transports.
DP World, one of the largest marine terminal operators in the world, with 49 terminals in 31 countries, took notice of the INTEGRITY research activities related to the companyâ€™s interest to enhance customersâ€™ supply chain efficiency by effectively managing container transports. DP WorldÂ´s team of nearly 30,000 people serves customers in some of the most dynamic economies in the world like the Middle East and China.
Hutchison Port Holdings (HPH), the worldâ€™s leading port investor, developer and operator, has already been involved as a partner in the INTEGRITY project since its inception. The new cooperation with DP World extends the scope of the INTEGRITY project to additional ports and tradelanes, with the aim of improving efficiencies for customers globally
