    Abstract

    The research project EURIDICE (European Inter-Disciplinary Research on Intelligent Cargo for Efficient, Safe, and Environment-Friendly Logistics) is now implementing a developed ICT platform for the transport sector and realizing the Intelligent Cargo concept. Intermodal railroad operations are today a great challenge for intermodal operators due to the lack of information for decision making. This paper presents the functionalities of the decision-support system for intermodal operators. The idea is that railway wagons manage themselves as much as possible based on the rules and decisions made by the transport manager
