THE MARNET NETWORK, PROPOSAL FOR AN INTER-REGIONAL MARITIME INFORMATION NETWORK

Objective

The MarNet mission statement is to provide a set of open and globally accessible information services to support logistic and multimodal transport operators. This is aimed to enhance the competitiveness of the European and Mediterranean maritime ports, and of the transport sector. To achieve this, the MarNet Project will set the basis for the creation of a multi-regional real time logistics information network.

Our approach, stepping forward the existing situation, will:
£ Help simplify the procedures for all Port Communities connected to the MarNet network either directly or via another network (such as EurotransPortnet), by providing harmonized procedures that will be used by all MarNet users regardless of their physical location. This will open new possibilities of doing business for economic operators.
£ Combine existing systems and technologies to broader their usage from local to regional and inter-regional level.
£ Make a new set of global enabling services available to the existing systems.
£ Provide all Port Communities, whatever their existing information system is today, with a common access to all these services.

The measurable objectives of the MarNet project, within the two years of this programme, are:
£ To demonstrate the feasibility of the MarNet concept by fully implementing a representative group of services.
£ To provide operational access to these services to big, medium and small Mediterranean ports, regardless of their current information system.
£ To demonstrate inter-regional interconnectivity with EurotransPortnet.
£ To set-up electronic short sea manifest exchange between agents.
£ To create reusable building blocks, for access from non-automated ports.
