    Abstract

    Inter-organizational systems are only used to some extend within the domain of transportation and logistics. Distributed agent technologies show a large potential to build a new generation of inter-organizational systems that overcome the hurdles earlier technologies were not able to take [2, 4]. In this paper we present an ongoing research project in which we try to establish a WebServices based agent platform to be used by a logistics service provider (LSP) in an inter-organizational context - which will connect the LSP's internal processes, with processes that span organizational boundaries and therefore is likely to result in interesting process improvements; cost savings and improved competitive advantage are expected outcomes. This paper describes the process we followed, and gives a glimp of our preliminary findings. We conclude the paper with a short discussion and our research agenda.
