Business to Motorways of the Sea transport study wins EU support

Creation date: March 26, 2014

The European Union will support with nearly €5.7 million from the TEN-T Programme a study to promote the operational cooperation of the public and private sectors to increase the efficiency of the "Motorways of the Seas" (TEN-T Priority Project 21).

The study, selected for funding under the 2012 TEN-T Multi-Annual Programme, will contribute to establishing a European maritime space without barriers by facilitating and simplifying compliance with regulations and by promoting intermodal sustainable transport solutions that reinforce the Motorways of the Sea (MoS) strategy.

Six Member States (Germany, Greece, Italy, Slovenia, Spain, United Kingdom) are aiming to overcome Information and Communication Technology (ICT) obstacles in providing seamless transport operations in the multimodal supply chain.

This will boost the development of a MoS network and improve European cohesion by simplifying specific administrative procedures and reducing barriers to intra-EU trade.
