Abstract: This Thesis describes the state of the art in supply chain security, with a particular emphasys given to security in maritime transportation. Current standards and regulations are analyzed, and an overview of the the use of modern technologies in the field is given. The main vulnerability of the supply chain is the commercial container. Presently, regulations and standards mainly take into consideration mechanical means of sealing a commercial container. The use of wireless technologies for container sealing, tracking and tracing is not part of international regulations. Moreover, this document discusses the need for a global approach to supply chain security that envisages vulnerability tests on the whole flow of goods and not on single elements that compose it. In this document we present the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, and the reasearch carried by the JRC in the field of supplychain security. In particular, we discuss a remote monitoring technology for commercial containers developed by the JRC, based on RFID, GSM, GPS and passive RFID based eSeals.
