Promoting integrated transport in peripheral areas of the union. Case scandinavia


SCANDINET is designed to meet the requirements of Task 3.1/1 dealing with Integrated Transport Chains. Its overall goal "to improve the access to the infrastructure, information and market for intermodal trasport services - in particular for SME's and isolated flows".
To meet this goal, to study and to demonstrate these aims besed on PACT (Pilot Actions for Combined Transport) activities, the overall objectives of Project SCANDINET are:
1. To identify the potential demand and supply for Intermodal Transport services, including line haulage, pick up and delivery for peripheral and isolated areas of EU.
2. To identify the possibilities to combine national, inernational and transit flows into selected corridors and terminals by using Intermodal Transport.
3. To study the possibilities toreduce the viable usage area of Intermodal Transport from 700 - 800 km and to combine the flows with new services. To build a framework for evaluating environmental and legal aspects of new IT services.
4. To identify the gaps and bottlenecks in information in information flows. To define a concept for operational organisation for real time information services. A feasibility judgment of establishing new business to process information will be made.
5. To validate developed concepts with simulation and field trials.
6. To draw policy conclusions for peripheral and isolated areas. Design a guide for intermodal transport users and service providers.

3 to 4 corridors and transport concepts will be selected and tested during the course of the project.
SCANDINET will use the results of PACT activities
