Abstract

In the era of the global economy the container shipping represents a fundamental link of the logistic chain of the multimodal transport. The optimization of the cargo handling and, generally, of the port operations becomes a challenge for improving the performance of the whole supply chain. The adoption of Information and Communication Technologies can largely support operations management in a container terminal. On the other hand, the terroristic threats have dramatically increased the need for protecting critical infrastructures like ports, railway stations, airports. In this paper we describe the case study of the SIS-TEMA project which aims at designing a secure integrated framework for management of port operations. An architecture which guarantees both the efficiency of terminal operations and the security of the overall critical infrastructure is presented.
