Summary
The work described, in this paper, addresses European mandates for the safety and security in multimodal transport, focusing on the transfer of dangerous cargo through seaports, and in national efforts to adhere to both the guidelines and the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road guidelines. The system architecture described, which deals with the creation and implementation of an integrated methodology to complement a "single window" platform, for the security, information and operation of intelligent marine transport, is currently in pilot testing at two EU States.
