73 Transnational E-services for Efficient Oversize Logistics Kristina Hunke1 Abstract The implementation of the renewable energy Directive (2009/28/EC) of the European Com- mission and the resulting national renewable energy action plans of the member states opened up the market and trade of over-dimensional cargo. The transshipment of these oversize car- gos causes comprehensive operations with a lot of bureaucracy as well as economic losses due to the need to build and reconstruct infrastructure and due to time consuming permission processes. This paper will provide an analysis of selected national laws and regulations and will show differences and non-conformities but will also demonstrate similarities which can allow opportunities for perspective cooperation for international oversize transports. Furthermore, this paper will demonstrate different national e-services as well as a multinational solution resulting from a European funded project called OTIN (Oversize Transport Information Net- work). Practical experiences from transport forwarders and industry clients substantiate the ne- cessity of such coherent application services as the role of transnational oversize transports is an increasing share of the daily business.

Introduction The implementation of the renewable energy Directive (COM 2009/28/EC) of the European Commission and the resulting national renewable energy action plans of the member states opened up the market and trade of renewable energy power plants and innovative power generating systems. New trade routes had to be found and demand for the exchange and transhipment of goods increased. Demand...
