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.
INTEGRITY to participate in World Customs Forum 2010
The famous city of Istanbul will be the venue of the WCO Forum 2010 which takes place from 6th to 7th October, 2010, under the motto "Building Momentum for an Effective Partnership". This important event will be attended by more than 200 high-level participants from Customs authorities and other organizations worldwide.
The INTEGRITY Consortium, consisting of Customs partners, port operators, cargo owners, 3PLs, technology providers, and academic partners, will use the unique opportunity to participate in the eventâ€™s exhibition and to present the project and its open visibility platform SICIS (Shared Intermodal Container Information System) to the audience. SICIS offers unique functionalities especially for Customs. As an example, shippers can upload consignment data to SICIS, which Customs can use to improve their risk assessment processes.
Another important feature is the recognition of door-open alerts provided by Container Security Devices (CSDs), leading to immediate detection of threats and thus to an improved container security. SICIS is currently in its demonstration phase and has already proven its tremendous benefits and usefulness.
