An innovation for a future-proof logistics sector
Uniform, simple and controlled data sharing
iSHARE is an innovation from the Dutch Neutral Logistics Information Platform (NLIP) – a Dutch Logistics Top Sector initiative. It has been initiated to give the Dutch logistics sector a renewed competitive edge in Europe.
Sharing data with hitherto unknown parties
iSHARE is a scheme or uniform set of agreements for identification, authentication and authorisation. It enables everyone in the logistics sector to share data with everyone else in a uniform, simple and controlled way. This includes sharing data with hitherto unknown parties.
Control over data
iSHARE is based on the principle that organisations themselves decide what data they will share (or not) and with whom.
Developed through co-creation
Throughout 2017 various public and private organisations within the Transport & Logistics sector jointly developed the iSHARE scheme in order to create a working solution.
To boost further data sharing
NLIP aims to use this scheme to remove obstacles to further data sharing, to boost cooperation within the chain, and to scale up, accelerate and effectively connect existing digital data exchange initiatives.
NLIP asked INNOPAY, a consultancy company specialising in digital transactions, to facilitate the project.
This year's launch
iSHARE will be launched this year with a lead group of logistics businesses and their clients. It is ready for sector-wide adoption, beginning in the Netherlands.
