Abstract—In this paper, the design of a transport planning module utilizing Future Internet capabilities is described. It is reported on a use case study where functionality from the module will be used to improve the planning of containerized fish transport from Norway to Brazil. Future Internet capabilities are used to integrate services from several actors along the transport chain through the FInest collaboration platform. This improves collaboration between transport actors by automatically utilizing real time information about transport demands, transport services, transport contracts and transport related events during planning and replanning. In the proposed solution, actual capacities are checked automatically and bookings are done based on the transport demand and the selected services. Through interaction with event handling and execution functionalities, replanning is supported in the transport planning tool, and effects of the events on the transport plan are shown directly. The paper concludes that Future Internet capabilities used for transport planning and replanning will increase information visibility and availability throughout the transport chain, and that the solutions can be easily adapted by different actors to fit their specific needs. The fish use case study showed that services offered through Future Internet are promising for increasing capacity utilization for the carriers.
