US Department of Transport using UBL and web services to create a Freight Information Highway.

The Electronic Freight Management (EFM) initiative is a US Department of Transport sponsored project that applies Web technologies that improve data and message transmissions between supply chain partners.

EFM uses UBL documents and a federated set of web services to create an exciting new platform for tracking freight through a supply chain.

The CEFM (Columbus EFM) project is a test recently concluded using an existing supply chain. For details see the web site below. Focus Areas: BPEL | DITA | ebXML | IDtrust | OpenDocument | SAML | UBL | UDDI
