Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review


In this paper we address the container security problem and we investigate RFID-enabled innovative solutions to confront it. To that end, initially we set the scene of the problem by reporting existing security problems in ocean container transport and container security-originated initiatives and regulations that affect seaborne containers transportation and handling. Afterwards, we accomplish our central objective by reporting RFID-enabled solutions and how they promote container security. In brief, our research unveiled that RFIDenabled IT systems can enhance container security. Specifically, as-yet RFID applications appear to assist in container identification and location tracking, in employee and vehicle access monitoring, and in regulatory adherence.
