The improvement of transport processes gains a lot of interest from enterprises and governments. Configuration of supply chain should meet both economical and environmental goals. Companies participating in supply process more and more often prefer to create temporary relations and form virtual cooperation networks than to keep traditional long-term contracts. The aim of the paper is to present the potential of multiagents application for coordination of processes in virtual supply chain. The theoretical background of the project is presented. The main problems and requirements of the virtual supply chain coordination are identified. The reference model is described. Finally authors present a case study from pharmaceutical industry. © 2011 Springer-Verlag. Source

The common access to the broadband Internet allows small and medium enterprises (SME) to joindifferent cooperation network. For over decade European Commission in order to fulfill the obligations of sustainable policy promote intermodal transportation. Despite all these efforts the utilization rate of road transportation is still growing reaching last year 76,9%. Intermodal cargo may be carried out in one and the same loading unit or vehicle, on the whole route from the sender to the consignee using the different modes of transport. Planning and coordination of intermodal transportation requires participation of different companies. The main problem still is lack of consistency between processes which are undertaken by various supply chain participants. The aim of this paper is to propose the concept of broader cooperation between intermodal transport process participants based on semantic web and multi-agent system. The application of semantic web and multi-agent system allows to improve the information exchange among different companies and better intermodal transport planning and coordination. © 2011 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

Current model of organization of supply chains results in inefficient use of transport resources, high transport costs, increasing congestions and CO 2 emission. This effect has been demonstrated by research conducted by the author as well as by the European Environmental Agency. This situation can be change by development of alternative business model for collaboration in organisation of the transport processes within the supply chains. The aim of this paper is to present practical implementation of the developed by the author T-Scale platform that enables collaboration between independent transport users and transport service providers. Moreover, an overview of existing communication platform with its major functionalities are presented. The work is summarized by the major benefits of collaboration achieved by the group of companies operating in the FMCG sector in Poland. © 2013 Springer-Verlag. Source

In the age of rapid economic changes, companies are forced to continuously search for ways of transport and logistics processes rationalization. For manufacturing and distribution companies reduction of logistics costs and in particular transport ones is the most important. The aim of the chapter is to present concept of cooperation between group of manufacturing and transport enterprises in the sphere of transport processes̀ implementation in supply chains. Author is going to describe new business reference model for the entire supply chain that would cause positive effect on enterprisès activity in the short and long term (load factor) and also on the region in which the enterprise operates. Presented model will be validated in real business cases with participation of the industry. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2011. Source

Global real-time monitoring of means of transport and freight is necessary if we want to use the available resources in a sustainable way. Up-todate information about the fleet and cargo can also improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the logistics processes organization in supply chains. Such monitoring also enhances transport security. Generally accessible solutions for global tracking, however, are expensive and quite unreliable. The purpose of this article is to present the concept of the T-Traco system, which is used for global tracking of vehicles and cargo. Its main advantage, in comparison to the existing solutions, is the use of the USSD communication channel, which is more reliable and much cheaper than GPRS and SMS. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015.
