Interoperability between enterprise systems in supply chains is increasingly essential for successful supply chain integration and key in the creation of innovative businesses / business models. In this paper we present a novel approach for supply chain choreography to support supply chain organizations in practice in creating seamless chain integration. The aim we set ourselves in this paper is to propose an architecture to enable and/or improve the exchange of information between supply chain organizations. To address this challenge we followed the design science methodology. First, we derived to a body of knowledge combining literature - on supply chain collaboration and challenges, but also corresponding areas such as web services - with empirical knowledge gained from applied research and industrial projects we were and are involved in. Secondly, we propose a semantic architecture that is able to support seamlessly integration and create an ecosystem where programmable logistics are the future. First implementations are promising, but also revealed a series of improvements to our architecture. Further research is required for more practical validation and improving the theory, and validation of the current research.
