Basic Data Infrastructure (BDI) focuses on enhancing the efficiency of data sharing in the logistics sector. BDI has a set of comprehensive agreements for data, balancing control and efficiency to facilitate smooth operations among stakeholders.

Challenge and Context

Information gaps, such as inaccessible data or lengthy data transfer protocols, hinder operational coordination in the Operations and Supply Chain domain. A smoother information flow is essential for optimising Operations and Supply Chains. The challenge lies in enhancing the effectiveness of information exchange through automated data exchanges.


BDI introduces standardised data-sharing practices with core objectives including establishing digital trust, implementing semantics for automated processing, and providing event-based alerts. By adhering to these principles, BDI streamlines information exchange processes, ensuring reliability, efficiency, and responsiveness within supply chain operations.

How it works

The BDI Framework comprises a stack of components with semantic, technical and governance blocks. This model is utilised by individual associations, which are responsible for onboarding, checks, or verification. Within an Association, efficient and effective trust management is ensured. Trust with outsiders is continuously evaluated within a perimeter-less zero trust environment. 

Added Value Through the iSHARE Trust Framework

BDI leverages the iSHARE Trust Framework as a foundational layer and cornerstone in fortifying trust within its associations. The BDI Trust Framework builds upon the iSHARE Trust Framework and seeks interoperability with other data space initiatives (IDSA, GAIA-X). Through this, BDI achieves robust identity and access control over its data resources. Seamlessly integrating the iSHARE Trust Framework seamlessly into its digital infrastructure ensures the integrity and security of data exchanges within the operations and supply chain domain. This integration not only enhances transparency and accountability but also instills confidence among stakeholders regarding the reliability and authenticity of shared data.
