Goal 5

Improved competitiveness of rail and combined transport relative to road transport

Actions:

Bundle local and regional traffic with transit traffic and different types of cargoes for higher transport service frequency

Implementation of new block trains

Action proposal 5:

Development of block trains running in the Scandria Corridor

Objective:

Extended offer of competitive rail and combined transport services

Elements:

  • Connections via the SCANDRIA corridor with key regions in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Berlin-Brandenburg
  • further sea-connections from ports in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern
  • Berlin-Brandenburg acting as hinterland-hub for the ports Bremen/Bremerhaven and Hamburg
  • Identify and involve market players, facilitators and shippers in the project
  • Further potential analyses directed at promising branches and connections with neighboring regions
  • Marketing activities

 

  • Technologies for handling of not craneable semi-trailers in combined transport terminals
  • Information tool for planning of intermodal transports
  • Efficient transport of single wagons/wagon groups
  • Dissemination measures through a dedicated marketing network (e. g. the Scandria logistics portal)
  • Transport alternatives by new short.sea services

 

Actors:

Networks of interested companies, regional logistics initiatives and other development initiatives active in the field of transport and logistics
