ISL is a non-profit institute based in Bremen and Bremerhaven (Germany) with a long-standing experience in applied reserach & development in the field of maritime transport and logistics.
For about 10 years, also security research is part of our activities. ISL has coordinated several projects in the EU 7th FP (e.g. INTEGRITY) as well as in the German National Research Programme on Civil Security (ECSIT, PreparedNET) and participated in several other projects. Some topics of the security related projects are (1) security of global intermodal container supply chains by enhanced supply chain visibility , (2) use of RFID container tags and electronic seals, (3) investigation of the impacts of the 100% scanning law on the Bremerhaven container terminals, (4) resilience of freight villages on infrastructure breakdowns.
