Freight and passengers sUpporting infomobiliTy systems for a sUstainable impRovEment of the competitiveness of port-hinterland systems of the MED area



Start: 01/06/2012

End: 31/05/2015

Duration: 36 months

Description: 36 months

The project aims to improve the competitiveness of port systems in the Mediterranean area by improving accessibility through technology and procedural innovations and guaranteeing sustainability of transport. The idea focuses on the interoperability of information management systems and on the reduction of externalities hindering the ports’ operation. The project addresses three strategic sectors for the Mediterranean area: freight, passenger and touristic flows. The project intends to define and implement, by means of concerted territorial actions and pilot projects, sustainable medium- and long-term development strategies. These will be focused on: the removal of the current barriers concerning accessibility of ports (seaside and landside); the integration of ports with the hinterland; the development of logistics activities and intermodal transport connected with ports; the development of infomobility aiming at fostering attractiveness and making port system more efficient;   the specialization of port systems. Specific applications will be developed:

  • a dynamic system for the real-time management of freight and passenger flows, aiming at identifying actions to remove congestion and bottlenecks in the interface between ports and related territories (specifically in ports situated within cities);
  • solutions to digitalize intra-EU port-to-port and port-to-operators communications related to bureaucratic duties (e.g. Customs);
  • solutions to enable visibility along the transport chain for the operators;
  • solutions for specific supply chains (e.g. agro-food).
