The chemical industry is an important economic sector in central Europe with 117 billion Euro turnover and 340.000 employees. Chemical companies are important logistic stakeholders responsible for 8 percent of freight transport. The main objective of ChemMultimodal is the promotion of multimodal transport of chemical goods. The project aims to achieve this by coordinating and facilitating cooperation between chemical companies, specialised logistics service providers (LSP), terminal operators and public authorities in chemical regions in central Europe.

Based on a detailed analysis of the needs for improving multimodal transport of chemical goods, the project will  develop a toolbox to support chemical companies and

logistics service providers in their strategic and operational planning for increasing the share of multimodal transport. This toolbox will be tested in 6 pilots with 30 chemical companies in the partner countries to facilitate real modal shift. In these pilots it is the objective to increase multimodal transport by 10 percent and reduce CO2 footprint by 5 percent until the end of project duration. Furthermore, 6 training seminars will be implemented to teach usage of the tool to additional 120 companies. 1 common strategy and 7 regional action plans will be developed to continue and intensify activities after the project end.
