This paper describes how an information service architecture was developed for the international multimodal logistic corridor Pol-Corridor. It describes how the information services needed by Pol-Corridor were identified and how these service needs were transformed into system component requirements. An analysis was carried out to investigate how existing off-the-shelf and already-operational systems can fulfil these information needs by ldquomappingrdquo several information systems into the service architecture. The theory and trends in the research of software architectures are discussed in order to explain the foundation for defining the service architecture for Pol-Corridor. European Union policies concerning interoperability of technical systems in international transport, as well as their efficiency, are also discussed in this paper.
