In the logistics, there are the variety of available data formats. This should make it difficult to quickly implement a system to communicate with other application systems. Furthermore, once the system which can handle the data formats agreed with each other has been implemented, a considerable amount of effort is still required to reformat the data for utilization in any other services like which shippers are able to monitor and track their freight on Web. To overcome these problems, we apply semantic Web service technology, which provides a promising common interoperable framework in which information is given well-defined meaning in unambiguous and machine-interpretable form by using ontology such that data and services can be used for more effective discovery, automation, integration, and reuse across various applications. Finally, we have shown the reasonability of adopting semantic Web service as a case study.
