The purpose of this paper is to identify functionalities provided by Smart Transportation Management (STM) systems that contribute to more effective transport operations. To prepare the paper, a literature study was conducted, looking for relevant up-to-date literature within the fields of transportation, logistics, ICT and possible environmental impacts caused by freight transportation. Based on the results from the literature review and previous work on the Smart Transportation Management model, it was used as a framework for data collection. The data collection was carried out by interviewing representatives from companies and organizations that are considered experts in various aspects of transportation management and usage of advanced technologies to operate transportation and transportation infrastructure. The approach was to identify functionalities of different components of the conceptual Smart Transportation Management model; Smart Freight, Smart Vehicle and Smart Infrastructure, and identify the potential benefits it will bring to transport operations. Many functions were found, including automatic identification, dynamic routing, dynamic traffic information, etc., that have potential impacts on transportation operations.
