Trans-Rail Integrated Goods European-Express Routes Demonstrators

Objective

TIGER Project developed under the 7FP addresses the issues of promoting sustainable logistics introducing innovative railway services connecting the sea ports of the European Union with the Hinterland. This is done with particular attention to the flows generated to/from the Far East and South East Asia, involving all European major Ports, suffering from traffic congestion. In particular, two North European, and three Mediterranean Ports are key actors in researching innovative logistics solutions in TIGER. The Inland distributions to/from the Ports are being completely restructured. New production concepts based on Ship to Train operations together with shuttle trains prosecution into Inland Dry ports, are adopted. By doing so, Dry Ports constitute a sizeable extension of the yards, since they are capable of executing any Customs, handling and ancillary operations, up to delivery to final destinations. Such service restructuring is being achieved through substantial investments in ports/dry ports infrastructures, handling equipments, technology innovations, new intelligent management systems, modern production processes, and lengthening of the total value chain to/from the Dry ports up to the end users.
Through TIGER, a coherent set, of innovative production cycles deliver better service, greater performances, faster transit times at a considerably reduced costs. These are the pre requisites for modal shift in favour of rail freight.
Whilst TIGER is developed up to the PILOT TEST PHASE, Tiger Demo would accompany the pilots and turn them into full scale demonstrators. In fact, the market up-take of TIGER discoveries is subject to both the partners commitment and to their demonstration over a long period of time, following the pilot phase. During TIGER Demo, the fine tuning of the service performance will be achieved, being this fundamental for reaching the full commercial exploitation of the new Ports/Dry Ports/Inland distribution production process.
