Abstract: In a container transport system, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) can be used for monitoring products while they are
being transported. To be commercially interesting, these WSNs must be integrated with enterprise systems of various
actors in the supply chain. The need for interoperability between networks and partners, the heterogeneity of WSN
technologies being used, and the mobility of sensor nodes make this integration far from trivial. This paper presents
lessons learned from a research project in collaboration with industry in which we developed a prototype middleware
solution for container transport. The prototype triggered valuable feedback which is highly relevant to consider when
designing middleware for realistic sensor applications.
