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.<br />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.<br />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.<br />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. <br />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).<br />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.
