|Currently, available data about truck freight flows through the ports in Swedish and German part of the Scandria®Corridor is more than 10 years old, thus from before the Schengen-treaty went into force for most of the Central and Eastern European countries like Poland or the Baltics. Since that, transport flows have changed significantly.
Within Scandria®2Act, the Swedish Transport Administration and the Rostock Port carry out a truck driver survey. Asking more than 3,000 truck drivers at 12 ports in Western and Southern Sweden, the Öresund-Bridge and the port of Rostock, they will generate a new picture of truck based freight transport crossing the Baltic Sea along the Scandria®Corridor. Among others, the drivers will be asked about the freight they are carrying, the start and end point of the transport and the route they are taking.
The survey also includes phone interviews with haulage companies about their transports across the Oresund Bridge between Denmark and Sweden
The results will be available in late 2017 at the Scandria®2Act website and will provide essential information to improve port and multimodal services as a prerequisite to shift transport from road to rail, a declared objective of the Scandria®2Act partners.
