Goal 5

Improved competitiveness of rail and combined transport relative to road transport


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


Extended offer of competitive rail and combined transport services


  • 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
