Objective

The MOSES project treats Sea Motorways as extensions of the land-based TEN-T. The freight carried along the sea motorways is destined to or carried from economic hinterlands across Europe. The sea motorways are key parts of the European logistic supply chains that are themselves part of global logistic supply chains. They are an integral part of the door to door transport chains that establish the functionality of these logistic supply chains.

The efficiency of sea motorways will depend, essentially, on them being highly functional parts of the overall European logistic supply chains and their functionality will depend strongly on the efficiency of the sea to port and port to sea interface and the port to hinterland and hinterland to port interface. The organisational and technological efficiencies of all the elements of the logistic supply chains, and particularly the interfaces indicated above, will be key aspects to be addressed by MOSES.
