One of the greatest inventions in mankinds- history was the GP- System,1 which influenced the world business decades ago until the very present. First implemented for military activities to track the troops of enemies and their own positioning, industrial companies soon experienced the advantages of tracking their goods even during transport. Tracking- and Tracing- Systems are used for tracking a piece, a pallet or the whole truck.2 Advantages for industrial companies are that the planning of an efficient logistics network can be done more easily with such Technologies as well as a minimizing of the stock value in their warehouses can be achieved. On the other hand freight forwarding companies face the opportunity to tell the customer at any time where the truck is at the very moment without much effort and in real- time. Additionally an eye can be kept on keeping the optimal routes and productivity of each truck.3 Some branches even require tracking- and tracing- systems by law like the food industry. The reason behind is to proof origin and freshness (best before dates) of the products.4 There are many different types of those Technologies sharing different data depending on what the branch requires. Industrial companies mainly put barcodes and RFID-Chips on their cases or pallets, which allows a very detailed tracking and tracing. For freight forwarding companies it is often enough to track the whole truck. Therefore GNSS (mainly GPS) is the most important technoly in this sector.5 What does the continiuous improvement of tracking- and tracing- technolgies mean for future data transfer in the FTL- sector? What is the status quo and in which direction will it change in the next years? Where are possibilities for optimization? The present script will deal with those questions and others like when, how often and which information has to be at hand.
