RISING

The objective of RISING (2009-2012) is identify, integrate and further develop information services (RIS) for Inland Waterway Transport (IWT) in order to efficiently support operators in the logistic chain.

As IWT is an integral part of co-modal transport and logistics chains and has to comply with requirements of supply chain management (SCM). SCM attaches a key roles to an effective transport infrastructure and high-performance Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS). Thus requiring IWT to exploit existing information services and to identify new RIS services to be included in the IWT-based business cycle (planning, execution and completion).

RISING aims to assist transport-logistics operators, enhancing:
■ RIS information for voyage planning of IWT operators - providing data on water level, water depth, maximum height/bridges, berth availability, lock occupation (actual and predictions/forecasts) used for routing, stowage planning, etc.
■ RIS information for the fleet management of inland navigation - including unpropelled inland vessels, by identifying their current position and status of operation
■ RIS information facilitating event management - including voyage monitoring for IWT operators, freight integrators, inland port operators, sea port operators providing status information, e.g. vessel positions, passing waypoints, missing administrative reports, predictions of problems in continuation of the voyage
■ RIS information for both inland/sea ports and terminals management - providing Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) updates for e. g. transhipment operations, management of terminal resources and of pre- and post-haulages

RISING is a project co-financed by the European Commission (DG MOVE) within the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development.
