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.
Project management meeting in Bremerhaven on 24th and 25th August 2010
From August, 24th to 25th, 2010 Bremerhaven was the venue of the 5th INTEGRITY Project management meeting. Representatives of all project partners met to discuss the current project status and the next steps to be taken.
Meeting of the INTEGRITY project partners.
The worldwide open platform SICIS (Shared Intermodal Container Information System) once more was extended by additional functionalities in order to even better support operations of its users such as transport and port operators, cargo owners, 3PLs, exporters and Customs.
Since September 2009 more than 1.600 containers were tracked by SICIS on their door-to-door journey from China to Europe. This number will further increase in the future by including further tradelanes in the demonstration activities. An important new feature of SICIS - amongst others - is the uploading of consignment data which will be used by Customs to optimize risk assessment processes.
The next release of SICIS will provide exception reports when expected data are missing and contain interfaces to the neutral platform of the EU partner project SmartCM and the new cooperation partner DP World for monitoring the tradelane from China to Southampton.
As a conclusion, the INTEGRITY project is well in time according to the project schedule and has already now reached many of its goals. The project will continue until May, 2011.
