Intermodal Terminal --> Fleet and Freight Management Center:
container delivery confirmation

Definitions

container delivery confirmation (Information Flow): Notice confirming the arrival and transfer of control of a container at a container handling facility, for example an intermodal terminal.

Intermodal Terminal (Source Physical Object): The 'Intermodal Terminal' represents the terminal areas corresponding to modal change points. This includes interfaces between roadway freight transportation and air, rail, and/or water shipping modes. The basic unit of cargo handled by the Intermodal Terminal physical object is the container; less-than-container load handling is typically handled at a different facility (i.e., Freight Consolidation Station). The Intermodal Terminal can include electronic gate control for entrance and exit from the facility, automated guidance of vehicles within the facility, alerting appropriate parties of container arrivals and departures, and inventory and location of temporarily stored containers.

Fleet and Freight Management Center (Destination Physical Object): The 'Fleet and Freight Management Center' provides the capability for commercial drivers and fleet-freight managers to receive real-time routing information and access databases containing vehicle and/or freight equipment locations as well as carrier, vehicle, freight equipment and driver information. The 'Fleet and Freight Management Center' also provides the capability for fleet managers to monitor the safety and security of their commercial vehicle drivers and fleet.

Communication Solutions

  • US: UBL - Secure Internet (ITS) (7)
Solutions are sorted in ascending Gap Severity order. The Gap Severity is the parenthetical number at the end of the solution.

Selected Solution

US: UBL - Secure Internet (ITS)

Solution Description

This solution is used within the U.S.. It combines standards associated with US: UBL with those for I-I: Secure Internet (ITS). The US: UBL standards include upper-layer standards required to implement shipment related information flows. The I-I: Secure Internet (ITS) standards include lower-layer standards that support secure communications between ITS equipment using X.509 or IEEE 1609.2 security certificates.

Basis Container status information may be competitive but certainly is trackable data, and needs to be obfuscated to avoid such tracking or business-related espionage. Container status information should be correct in real-time, or pickup, delivery and related activities will be confused and slowed, creating supply chain issues and mobility problems.
