The CASSANDRA project finalised in August 2014 after it run for 3,5 yeats. It aimed to make container security more efficient and effective. The project addressed the visibility needs of both business and government in the international flow of containerised cargo by developing a data sharing concept that allows an extended assessment of risks by both business and government. The CASSANDRA concept did improve supply chain visibility, efficiency of trade compliance and effectiveness of border control and supervision by combining E-Freight and E-Customs. CASSANDRA builds on previous EC FP7 projects INTEGRITY, SMART-CM and ITAIDE.

With increasing flows of containerised traffic and growing emphasis on (national) security, businesses and government are struggling to find efficient and effective means to ensure full supply chain control and security. A large number of research studies have been conducted to investigate supply chain dependencies, vulnerabilities and resilience. Supply chain security frameworks have been developed to support businesses in improving resilience and security. Governments are launching security programmes to involve in development of security standards and procedures.
