Workshop on Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS)
Bruxelles, 15-16 May 2013
Intelligent transport systems (ITS): Opportunities and challenges for intermodal transport
On 14 and 15 May 2013, a workshop was organized at Brussels to review the development and application of ITS projects in transport and to discuss how to ensure good governance by industries and public authorities towards efficient and sustainable freight transport systems with a focus on reliable, safe, secure, interoperable and internationally acceptable solutions. Participants discussed how modern information and communication technologies can assist modern freight and in particular intermodal transport systems to provide seamless operations and transhipment between road, rail and inland water transport modes.
The workshop was held at City Atrium in Brussels and was hosted by the Belgium Federal Public Service (FPS) - Mobility and Transport. It was chaired and moderated by Mr. Henri Maillard, Acting Director General, Sustainable Mobility and Rail Transport, FPS (Belgium) and Chair of the UNECE Working Party on Intermodal Transport and Logistics (WP.24).
The workshop was part of the UNECE road map to promote ITS towards sustainable transport and mobility. It will be followed-up at the next session of WP.24 (Geneva, 21-22 October 2013).
