The purpose of the e-Impact business case in Lisbon is to implement multimodal operations planning and execution management over maritime, road, rail and IWT to ensure that cargo efficiently may leave the port as soon as possible after arrival, thereby increasing port capacity without modifying the port infrastructure.

The business case will employ the e-Delivery infrastructure (for logistics) and will be using ISO/IEC 19845 electronic documents as “intermediaries” when providing interoperability between the different stakeholders involved (Port of Lisbon, Inland Terminals, Multimodal Operators, Rail Operator, Freight Forwarders, Rail and Road Infrastructure Managers, and Customs authorities).
