There are various other TEN-T projects that are related to the work currently being carried out under the CLYMA project. These are:
SWIFTLY Green (Sweden-Italy Freight Transport and Logistics Green Corridor) is a European project aiming to develop a toolbox for green corridors. The toolbox will consist of guidelines, tools and recommendations for greening of logistics and transport. It will be based on best practice and transferable results from a thorough mapping and analysis of previous and on-going projects.
Rail Freight Corridor 6
The Rail Freight Corridor 6 is aimed at making international rail freight transport more competitive and attractive.The Rail Freight Corridor 6 (Mediterranean Corridor) crosses five countries of the European Union (Spain, France, Italy, Slovenia and Hungary), over more than 6.000 km through the route Almería-Valencia/Madrid-Zaragoza/Barcelona-Marseille-Lyon-Turin-Milan-Verona-Padua/Venice-Trieste/Koper-Ljubljana-Budapest-Záhony.
The CASSANDRA project aims to make container security more efficient and effective. The project addresses the visibility needs of both business and government in the international flow of containerised cargo by developing a data sharing concept that allows an extended assessment of risks by both business and government. The CASSANDRA concept will improve supply chain visibility, efficiency of trade compliance and effectiveness of border control and supervision by combining E-Freight and E-Customs. CASSANDRA builds on previous EC FP7 projects INTEGRITY, SMART-CM and ITAIDE.
MIELE – Multimodal Interoperability E-services for Logistics and Environment sustainability.
The main objectives of the action (promoted and coordinated as a main beneficiary by the Italian Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport) is to design and to develop a pre-deployment pilot for an interoperable ICT platform (the “MIELE Middleware”) able to interface ICT systems (i.e. single windows, port community systems) in Italy, Portugal, Spain, Cyprus and Germany (the “National Vertical Pilots”).
“Among the MIELE goals, the most important is to pave the way to the implementation of Directive 2010/65 in the 5 Member States partners of MIELE”.
Monitoring and Operation Services for the Motorways of the Sea.
To provide the proper combination of measures for ports to become efficient gateways for SSS freight
The main approach focuses on two main types of traffic: Ro-ro traffic and container traffic. In particular we distinguish between 3 different scenarios that differ in customs control requirements.
1stly – Ro-ro services connecting EU ports to each other. These routes are also called the EU authorised regular services. The conflicts surround the freight transferred between terminals INside the customs area and terminals OUTside the customs area.
2ndly – Container services being carried out within the European Union, and issues surrounding the terminals within the customs area, intermodality, freight concentration, and multimodal corridors.
The third focus will be on the short sea services (SSS) that connect EU ports with other intermediate ports outside of the European Community area. We also want to measure the impact of the new customs security amendment from January 1st 2011.
Business to Motorways of the Sea – B2MOS.
The Business to Motorways of the Sea (B2MOS) global project aims to provide a suitable array of measures in order for ports to become efficient gateways for short sea shipping in order to compete on more door-to-door corridors and facilitate the development of TEN-T Motorways of the Sea network connecting Europe.
FERRMED is a non-profit association that was officially founded and registered in Brussels in 2004. It is a multi-sectorial association that came out of the initiative from the private sector in order to enhance the European competitiveness by promoting the so called “FERRMED Standards”, the improvement of Ports and Airports connections with their respective hinterlands, the conception of Great Rail Freight Axis Scandinavia-Rhine-Rhone-Western Mediterranean, the consolidation together with other associations of the major vectors of progress in the EU and neighboring countries (see Annex 1), and a more sustainable development through the reduction of pollution and climate change emissions.
ANNA is an EU Member States driven project – in close co-operation with the European Commission – to support the effective implementation of the EC Directive 2010/65/EU (Reporting Formalities for Ships arriving in/departing from EU ports).
ANNA fosters a harmonized approach for administrative facilitation:
– to reduce red tape for users
– to parse IT languages and
– to exchange data between national (Maritime Single Window) networks.
The RISING (River Information Services for Transport and Logistics is a project co-financed by the European Commission (DG MOVE) within the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development.
RISING has the overall objective of identifying, integrating and further developing information services such as River Information Services (RIS) in order to efficiently support Inland Waterway Transport (IWT) and logistics operations.
