The kick-off meeting was held on 19th - 21st June 2019 in Budapest. Partners from 4 countries met for the first time and discussed several topics.
Part of the meeting was a city sightseeing around Budapest. On the second day partners visited Freeport of Budapest Logistics which gave interesting information about the port and logistics.
Now the project can start!
The Orient/East-Med TEN-T corridor connects central and south-east Europe. A crucial bottleneck of emerging relevance is the Dresden-Prague section, which needs to be extended by a new railway line to improve the connectivity between German seaports and destinations in particular in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary.
The detailed planning process of the new railway line will start in 2018 and is expected to be finalised by 2023. To capitalise on the opportunities of the infrastructure investment for multi-modal environmentally friendly freight, the CORCAP project aims to realise activities for a better coordination of stakeholders in the field of transport and spatial planning. This will contribute to the creation of more efficient rail freight transport in central Europe.
To this end, the partners will develop “Corridor Capitalisation Plans” to facilitate the interaction of regional development and transport infrastructure development in the participating regions. Considering operational requirements of multimodal logistics locations and transport services, these plans add value to all TEN-T corridors. Additionally, practical steps towards more sustainable freight transport will be taken through quality improvements and better use of existing infrastructure. By improving the connectivity of intermodal hubs and inland ports and the investigation of new intermodal services, tangible benefits for more efficient freight transport will be delivered.
The tools serve and support the elaboration of pilot actions and the development of strategies in this thematic workpackage, thus contributing to the achievement of the project specific objectives. Read more
The outputs of the work package will be pilot actions aimed at better accessibility and connectivity of inland ports, the investigation of the feasibility of new and innovative intermodal services and the identification of attractive multimodal logistics locations. The outputs contribute to the strengthening of logistics locations and to the development of new intermodal services.
The outputs of the work package will be a tool for strategy building in OEM corridor regions, specifying the joint methodology of strategy development, Corridor Capitalisation plans addressing local, regional and transnational challenges for efficient and environmentally friendly freight transport and a transnational strategy summarising the conclusions and recommendations from Corridor Capitalisation Plans.
The effective system will be developed to efficiently manage flows of goods, improve truck throughput, eliminate congestion and gain a bird's eye-view of operations. The system will include modern IT solutions including smart technologies.
CORCAP has 10 partners from 4 European countries.
