Freight Consolidation Station --> Fleet and Freight Management Center:
container pickup request


container pickup request (Information Flow): Request for permission to pickup a container at an intermodal transfer facility.

Freight Consolidation Station (Source Physical Object): The 'Freight Consolidation Station' is an intermediate point (usually an intermodal terminal located at a port) prior to (or after) container-based shipping, where less-than-container load or less-than-truckload cargoes are consolidated into full container loads (or full containers are disbursed), for cost-effective intermodal shipping.

Fleet and Freight Management Center (Destination Physical Object): The 'Fleet and Freight Management Center' provides the capability for commercial drivers and fleet-freight managers to receive real-time routing information and access databases containing vehicle and/or freight equipment locations as well as carrier, vehicle, freight equipment and driver information. The 'Fleet and Freight Management Center' also provides the capability for fleet managers to monitor the safety and security of their commercial vehicle drivers and fleet.

This profile describes applicable standards for communicating between with ITS Roadway devices using the simple network management protocol (SNMP).

This profile describes an alternative set of standards used to communicate with ITS Roadway Devices that uses the NTCIP Octet Encoding Rules (OER), a standard developed specifically for the transportation industry. This template is used primarily for communication with traffic signal controllers, where second-per-second communications is required. This template also includes standards for SNMP traps, that allows an ITS Roadway Device to initiate event-driven communications with a receiver.
