e-Freight
e-Freight denotes the electronic flow of information, associating the
physical flow of goods to regulatory or commercial decision support
systems. It includes the ability to track and trace freight along its
journey across transport modes and to automate the exchange of
cargo-related data between stakeholders.

The Blueprint for e-Freight Solutions is
the e-Freight Framework
• A Reference Model de-composing the transport and logistics domain into manageable
subdomains
• Functions performed by roles pertinent to each sub-domain
• Processes of the key functions in the transport and logistics domain
• Information models structuring the information being exchanged into standardised
messages

Unique Value Propositions
• Connectivity Infrastructure offering for the first time
ever the possibility to transport stakeholder to
connect together without use of centralised
platforms
• Process integration based on e-Freight reference
processes
• Automated compliance for shippers, freight
forwarders, port and terminal operators and carriers
• Solution Building Blocks so that end users can
choose what they need from simple connectivity to
full optimisation of their operations
Connectivity Infrastructure
e-Freight Assess Points (EAPs)
• Analogous to email between actors using standard messages
defined in the e-Freight Framework or other standard and
enhanced security

‘Next Generation Single Window’
• Unified solution for regulatory information
management at both National and EU levels
• Allowing:
₋ Business to report using the same form to all
authorities, independent of mode and
transportation route, and
₋ authorities to share information
 policy implementation
 co-operation in security, safety and environmental
risk management.
