Action Plan Intermodal & ITS Experts Group June 2011 Update
Action Plan for the Intermodal and ITS Experts Group Brings focus to the Intermodal and ITS Group Promotes more timely results
Goals • Reduce barriers to the movement of people and goods and facilitate trade. • Save lives, time, money, energy and protect the environment through the adoption and deployment of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS). • Facilitate the implementation of an efficient, integrated, safe, secure, and sustainable Intermodal transportation system. • Evaluate and encourage the adoption of new transportation technologies and methodologies used in Intermodal and ITS applications.
Objectives • Standards • Identify Intermodal and Transportation Technology standards requirements which are APEC priorities. • Promote and facilitate the establishment of international ITS standards which are APEC priorities • Information Sharing • Build public/private partnerships that lead to a seamless, safe, secure, sustainable, and environmentally friendly transportation system that is intermodal. • Share information among APEC Economies regarding intermodal practices, projects and ITS developments. • Develop Human resources. • Research/Demonstration/Evaluation • Promote research on Intermodal and ITS needs addressing APEC goals and objectives
