Intelligent transport systems (ITS) non-safety capabilities along with the development of next generation grid-based vehicles will continue to play a fundamental role in the development of new applications that can impact logistics and supply chain management operations. The principles characterizing non-safety ITS applications can be developed to increase the reliability and visibility of supply chains in key sectors such as food in small urban and rural areas. More specifically, a supply chain visibility solution for seafood transportation can be designed to include specialized intelligent seafood transportation containers, which represent mobile wireless nodes capable of sending information via vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) about the status of live seafood stock. The expansion of the smart grid in rural and small urban areas will provide the support for the deployment of ITS applications that can impact the perishable food value chain.
