In this paper we describe how supply chain visibility platforms can be used to enhance supply chain security for maritime container transport. We use a three-step approach to define information needs for supply chain security. We map these information needs onto the current IT architecture and IT systems in the port of Rotterdam. This results into a gap analyses. We conclude the paper with a number of possible scenarios for the further development of supply chain visibility platforms. The paper is based on a field study conducted among 14 organizations in the port of Rotterdam in 2006 as part of the PROTECT research project.
