Collaborative data platforms open up new potential in maritime logistics

Foreign trade is traditionally known for involving a multitude of service providers along the entire value-added and transport chain. To facilitate the seamless integration of these partners and to increase transport efficiency requires the rapid and uncomplicated exchange of relevant data.

Collaborative open data platforms, for example, based on the EDI standard provide future-oriented solutions to meet these requirements and allow participants easy access, processing and forwarding of data. Moreover, open databases support the collaboration of all parties and facilitate prototyping with the aid of real data.
