The Action consists of the implementation of an e-Freight system in Italy, Poland and Portugal, with the aim to simplify and reduce the cost of exchanging information between different actors and transport modes along the chain. This will lead to a more efficient, less polluting freight transport, and facilitating the use of multimodal freight transport solutions.

The Action involves four real-life trials in the Core ports of Trieste in Italy; Gdansk, Gdynia, Szczecin and Świnoujście in Poland; and Leixoes and Lisbon in Portugal. The Action will deliver various studies including an e-Freight Adoption Toolkit and an assessment of the e-Freight PPP feasibility, estimating technical, financial and legal requirements on individual stakeholders, at corridor level, and across different corridors of the core network. Building on the pilots' results, the Action will deliver a business model.
