Final Report - EU-CARGOXPRESS (Greening of surface transport through an innovative and competitive CARGO-VESSEL Concept connecting marine and fluvial intermodal ports)

Project ID: 233925
Funded under: FP7-TRANSPORT

Abstract

This is the final report for the EU-CARGOXPRESS project which received funding under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The project's main aim was to develop a new generation of competitive cargo-vessels for accelerated maritime and fluvial shipping in order to support the greening of surface transport and prepare for fast and efficient modal shift in the ports. The report includes an executive summary focusing on the project context, the technological breakthroughs developed, the impact and the basic motivations for launching the project. It goes on introducing the context of the project which is grouped in seven categories and outlining its main objectives. The report also elaborates on the project results and the most significant research and development achievements and closes with the potential impact, the main dissemination activities and exploitation of results.
