The Scandria®Corridor (Scandinavian-Adriatic Corridor) is an initiative that promotes the shortest link between Scandinavia and the Adriatic.
It is an important part of the TEN-T Scandinavian-Mediterranean Corridor, connecting a dozen metropolitan regions with about 100 million inhabitants in the heart of Europe.
LOGISTICS & ECONOMICS
The Scandria®Corridor provides development infrastructure to meet the latest standards, providing sufficient capacities and the best technologies available to handle cargo and passengers smoothly. It demonstrates new fields of economic activities esp. for SMEs. Interreg IV B projects made efforts and potentials visible (see Baltic Transport Cluster).
Innovative transport and logistics shall generate regional economic growth. Smart links between urban nodes and economic engines make regions more accessible by connecting to the TEN-T. In addition to this, smart regional structures help to avoid unnecessary transport.
The aim of Green Transport is to optimise spatial structures, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, by using renewable transport energy and supporting multimodal transportation and logistics.
ROAD TO RAIL
In the long term, rail transportation is continuously increasing. It offers clean and efficient use of energy as well as safety and reliability regarding cargo and passenger transport. So a lot of projects and initiatives are focused on it.
OF THE SEA
Shifting goods from road to ship
will bring relief to the over-stretched European road infrastructure and will improve the access to markets throughout Europe.
