Project Summary

Analysing and better understanding the physical and non-physical barriers limiting the sustainable development of multimodal transport in the Adriatic Ionian region, developing ICT applications and elaborating and adopting a transnational strategy for the improvement of multimodal transport in ADRION were at the core of the ADRIPASS project. Regional cooperation, border crossing facilitation, dematerialization of processes exploiting the potential of ICT applications as well as stakeholders structured involvement and cooperation have represented a key element, not only to overcome the pre-existing bottlenecks facilitating multimodality in the area, but also to partially face the unprecedented challenges caused by the COVID 19 pandemic.
Building on the positive results achieved within ADRIPASS and considering the importance of capitalizing and further developing sustainable solutions for improving multimodal freight transport in the region, the ADRIPASS PLUS project will focus on:
a) promoting stakeholders’ involvement to update the ADRIPASS transnational strategy, with a special focus on ensuring its resilience to COVID-19 and the consequent economic crisis;
b) capitalizing, upgrading and enhancing already developed ICT platforms (Port Community Systems and similar ICT Applications) as a powerful and cost-effective tool to support dematerialization of processes in the Ports, improving ports efficiency with positive and concrete impacts on the efficiency of maritime-hinterland connectivity;
c) further disseminating project results at regional, national and transnational level increasing awareness of the solutions developed within European Territorial Cooperation projects among transport stakeholders, regional and national authorities.
Through the results of the ADRIPASS PLUS Project and in particular thanks to the institutional dialogue promoted in the framework of the already set ADRIPASS Transnational Cooperation Network, the transnational strategy for the enhancement of multimodal transport in the ADRION region will be updated taking into account the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and the point of view of transport stakeholders, national and European policy makers (Ministries of Transport, Transport Community, European Commission).

Project Summary

One of the main reasons that hamper the growth and the economic development of transport sector in ADRION region is lack of efficient maritime - hinterland connections, mainly caused by the existence of various bottlenecks at border level.
ADRIPASS will tackle this problem by (1) analyzing physical and non-physical bottlenecks on the Trans European Transport Networks (TEN-T) corridor sections of the ADRION region, with a specific focus on those recently extended to the Western Balcans, where most Border Crossing Points (BCPs) are located and (2) by testing specific Information and Communication Technology solutions for streamlining freight transport in ADRION ports, setting standards which may be replicated to Electronic Data Interchange interfaces at BCPs.
ADRION region will therefore benefit from the results of the above-mentioned activities thanks to the replicability of concrete project tools as the transnational action plan for transport facilitation in the Adriatic-ionian region and the Information and Communication Technology action plan for improving multimodal transport in ADRION regions.
Setting up an enduring multilevel and multidisciplinary transnational cooperation network (3), simultaneously and innovatively combining a bottom-up and top-down approach at BCPs, will then guarantee an important impact on the relevant area. 
Through the results of ADRIPASS project, and in particular through the ADRIPASS strategy for the enhancement of multimodal transport efficiency and competitiveness, planning capacities of transport stakeholders (port terminal/logistic operators, freight forwarders, railway companies) and national and European policymakers (Ministries of Transport, European Commission, TEN-T Corridor coordinators) will be significantly improved, since all of them are facing the same challenges concerning the multimodal transport accessibility and network efficiency on the TEN-T Corridor sections in the ADRION region (from the port to the hinterland).
Thanks to ADRIPASS project and results the entire process of regional transport planning will be strongly supported and complemented thus allowing an harmonization with EU transport policy in the relevant area.
