Supply Chain Security Research - Europe

In 2005 Innovative Compliance won a public tender issued by the Directorate of Energy and Transportation of the European Commission (DG -TREN) to perform a Study on a Prototype Data Base for Known Consignors (shippers) of Air Cargo (the EU Air Cargo Study). Innovative Compliance was awarded three extensions to the study (through public tender procedures), each of twelve months duration, in 2006, 2007 and 2008.

The EU Air Cargo Study utilized Camayu® ICS technology to establish a database of Regulated Agents and Known Consignors which rapidly became operational in six EU Member States – France, Germany, Italy, Austria, Belgium and the Netherlands. During 2008 Switzerland and Luxembourg joined the program.

The EU program was one of the first operational pan-European supply chain security solutions. It facilitates the mutual recognition of the measures taken to render air cargo secure across participating EU Member States.

In 2010 innovative Compliance was selected to participate in the 7th Framework LOGSEC European research project.

LOGSEC will assist both business and political decision makers to optimize the management of security in logistics and supply chains, to reduce vulnerabilities, to fight effectively against crime, and to tackle the complexities and issues in a more professional and knowledgeable manner. The project (phase 1) will develop a strategic roadmap for a large scale demonstration project (phase 2) in European logistics and supply chain security, characterized by appropriate security measures while keeping costs and delays to a minimum.
