GIFTS is an European Community funded project by Information Societies Technologies Programme (IST).
GIFTS project is related to the INFSO R&D programme, Intelligent Transport Infrastructures Task I.5.1 (Focus: Advanced IST systems for supporting logistics and co-operative resource management for the whole Transport chain).
GIFTS is primarily a Technology oriented project, that aims at developing Intelligent Transport Infrastructure for the use of systems that manage door-to-door freight transport.
GIFTS will provide technologies for the three main elements of the supply chain:
The door-to-door movement of cargoes
The electronic documentation that identifies the cargo
The administrative functions that manage the cargo procedures.
