Trieste, Italy (PortSEurope) April 15, 2019 – The Comodalce project “Enhancing COordination on multiMODAL freight transport in CE” has started in Trieste, which aims to make intermodal transport more efficient and competitive through the adoption of innovative technologies.
Comodalce, co-financed by the Interreg Central Europe Programme, has a budget of $1.96 million, of which $281,000 to support Autorita’ di Sistema Portuale del Mare Adriatico Orientale (AdSP – Eastern Adriatic Sea Port Authority) leading the project, with a duration of 36 months. Partners include the ports and interports of La Spezia, Koper, Rostock, Gdynia, Verona and Budapest.
Based on the analysis of the current situation and using international best practices in the sector as a benchmark, the project partners will develop medium and long-term development plans that will be implemented through concrete actions.
Taking advantage of new technologies and data exchange between different actors, the transport of goods by train will become more efficient, facilitating the modal shift from road to rail, with consequent positive effects in terms of polluting gases and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
