Information sharing creates advantages for the logistics industry
Sharing information about transported entities - including vehicles, containers, packages and products - between actors within a supply chain is crucial for a number of reasons. This argues the researcher Vahid Mirzabeiki in his dissertation "Collaborative Tracking and Tracing - A Supply Chain Perspective". According to the results of Vahid's research, sharing data through intelligent transportation systems leads to better traceability of products in fresh food supply chains and creates possibilities to increase the safety of cargo trains transporting dangerous goods.
