Code Lists proposed for application in e-Freight messages

Gianluca Fabbri, Ezio Roncarolo, António Urbano | April 2017

In the context of the EU Project e-IMPACT it was identified the need to build a toolkit containing the adequate artefacts to support an interested party (to be designated simply by adopter hereafter) in the adoption of the e-Freight Common Framework. Activity 1 of the project aimed the development of the artefacts. They have two natures: documents and software. In Sub-Activity 1.1 the artefacts were identified, and the ones that are documents were developed. The present document is included in the list resulting from the identification process (done under SubAct 1.1, Task 1.1.1). Its aim is the presentation of the Code Lists proposed for application in e-Freight messages.

Fundamentals

Gianluca Fabbri, António Urbano | April 2017

This document, named Fundamentals, is part of the e-Freight Toolkit and has been produced to give introductory information about e-Freight representing a general reference document to assist any interested party to easily adopt the e-Freight framework. The e-Freight Toolkit has been designed and assembled in the context of the EU Project e-IMPACT in order to allow a smooth transition from current practices to new e-Freight developments. The main purpose of this document is therefore to provide the interested parties with a quick guide allowing them to familiarize with the set of principles of e-Freight and its usage, the e-Freight messages definitions, and the Access Points specification and its usage. The e-Freight Toolkit can be considered as an open box containing the adequate artefacts to support an interested party (to be designated simply by adopter hereafter) in the adoption of the e-Freight Common Framework.

Mapping Templates’ Manual

António Urbano | April 2017

This manual is to explain the concept, the purpose and the usage of a set of mapping templates. These mapping templates (to be designated simply by templates hereafter) were developed in the context of Activity 1, SubAct 1.1, Task 1.1.3 of the EU Project e-IMPACT. The purpose of these templates is to assist any person (to be designated by adopter hereafter) in the process of adopting e-Freight messages in the context of its own business. Briefly, the templates present the data structure of the e-Freight messages and theirs constituents, organized in a tabular layout. The rows contain the data elements (see 2. – Background). The columns have diversified nature (data characteristics/definitions, notes, cardinality, applicability and source/destination of data). From the reading of the filled row/column intersections the adopter can figure out the current e-Freight messages’ definitions and by filling the adequate intersections (see 4. – Templates’ Layout) the adopter can configure the e-Freight messages to its business needs. It is not in scope of the templates to provide a revision of the e-Freight messages’ definitions.

Self-Assessment Questionnaire

António Urbano | April 2017

In the context of the EU Project e-IMPACT it was identified the need to build a toolkit containing the adequate artefacts to support an interested party (to be designated simply by adopter hereafter) in the adoption of the e-Freight Common Framework. Activity 1 of the project aimed the development of the artefacts. They have two natures: documents and software. In Sub-Activity 1.1 the artefacts were identified, and the ones that are documents were developed. The present document is included in the list resulting from the identification process (done under SubAct 1.1, Task 1.1.1). Its aim is the presentation of a set of questions to allow the adopter to assess the opportunity and the gaps, business and/or technical ones, to adhere to e-Freight. For each question or group of questions, several possible results apply. These results are grouped and commented, in order to provide the adopter with the looked up feedback. With this feedback the adopter will be clarified on its current situation from an e-Freight perspective and the points of concern when starting the e-Freight adoption process.

Activity 1 of the project aimed the development of the artefacts. They have two natures: documents and software. In Sub-Activity 1.1 the artefacts were identified and developed. The present document is included in the list resulting from the identification process (done under SubAct 1.1, Task 1.1.1). Its aim is the provision of examples on how to use the artefacts (mainly the ones that are documents) of e-IMPACT and, through this, adopt the e-Freight Common Framework.
