CONTAIN will promote the use of appropriate container security sensors providing monitoring and tracking data which will be fused with additional information sources in order to identify high-risk containers that should be more carefully monitored and investigated. To ensure adoption by stakeholders, the solutions must balance costs with benefits for the parties that adopt the necessary upgrading of their processes.

Consequently, the cornerstone of the CONTAIN approach is an EU Containers Surveillance Framework (ECSF) which will provide a stakeholder approach to secure containers transport balancing the interests, responsibilities and benefits of the key stakeholders. ECSF will guide the development of the CONTAIN Core Capabilities which will include:

 Upgraded Container Monitoring Solutions capable of providing permanent and reliable localisation as well as information on the integrity and content of containers;

 A Situational Awareness Support Platform that will facilitate the development of innovative, configurable and highly automated distributed information management applications guaranteeing and safeguarding the information chain on container movements at sea and on land that impact on security, border control, the environment and European trade and economic interests;

 CONTAIN Decision Support Services that will exploit the extended container monitoring and tracking information to optimise container transport related processes both in terms of security performance and efficiency and quality of container transport services.
