Abstract: With the principle of division of labor in logistics, an integrator can focus on planning and monitoring within a network, while subsidiary logistics service providers (LSPs) are responsible for the actual physical manipulation of goods. Because of heterogeneous service descriptions, processes and IT-systems, the integrator requires a platform that provides the ability to interact with LSPs and to plan, execute and monitor contracts for integrator’s customers. Such an integration platform is currently developed in the research project Logistics Service Engineering & Management. Crucial to such a platform is the ability to maintain a complete catalog and to efficiently identify and choose appropriate services. In this paper a metamodel-based approach is presented facing these requirements.Show all publications
