Green Intermodal Freight Transport

Acronym: GIFT


Start: 01/03/2012

End: 31/08/2014

Duration: 30 months

Description: 30 months

The main aim of GIFT project is to map, analyze and evaluate the status of the transport sector in the partners’ network to propose new policies and strategies in infrastructure, processes, assets, ICT, legislation, norms and harmonization/ standardization issues, in order to promote innovative green intermodal freight transport corridors.

GIFT project will drill down in three Pan-European Transport Corridors, namely IV, V and VII that cover almost the entire Southeast Europe region. These Corridors have been selected because:

  • They connect by road and rail major ports to landlocked countries.
  • Important freight flows to and from Europe pass through these corridors and include/ serve areas such as the Adriatic Sea, the Danube River, the Black Sea and the Balkans.
  • They have the potential to become more environmental friendly, since the tools (financial and operational) that can enhance the intermodality and interoperability in the transportation sector are now available and the conditions necessary for their exploitation are now suitable.
