Intermodal Interoperability Working Group
The Intermodal Interoperability Working Group is focussed on the flow of information to support the transport process, particularly in the movement of freight between operators. As a proof of concept, the work group is using the road-to-rail-to-road process in moving freight on the East-West corridor, in which the shippers believe there to be a lack of real-time information from transport providers across the supply chain.
The group aim to understand how stakeholders will benefit from improved data flows in managing freight. Melbourne University has offered to conduct an analysis that will help draw out the relative advantages of the “Intermodal Interoperability” Proof of Concept. Results are expected later in the year and will be shared when they become available.
