The Baltic Sea region is an area of fast growth and a key market for about 100 million consumers. To support this phenomenon and to smoothen the transportation flow in corridors and traffic gateways, issues such as the productivity in the operation of traffic, interoperability which exceeds the borders and more fluent, safer traffic with fewer effects on the air quality, require to be tackled.
The Baltic Loop project focuses on developing solutions to transportation bottlenecks along the East-West corridors. The project covers three of them: northern from Örebro – Turku – St. Petersburg, middle from Örebro – Tallinn – St.Petersburg and southern from Örebro – Riga – St. Petersburg; real-time traffic information about the status of traffic, the control of its flow and better commercial services will be provided.
A decrease in transportation and traveling time and in the subsequent emissions generated in these three corridors can be expected. As a spillover effect, improved competitiveness, a more efficient delivery/terminal operation process and reduced traveling time for passengers to the corridors will result as well.

Main activities to achieve the result are:
1) Gathering and analyzing open and available data
2) Improving and creating time efficient transportation solutions
3) Discovering economic benefits by time managing in transport interface
4) Dialoging between different transportation actors
The activities we are presenting will tackle the both programme result indicators. The flow of goods will improve as cargo transportation time will decrease compared to the present situation by finding and eliminating bottlenecks with new ways of technologies such as new applications or sophisticated procedures simultaneously also decreasing the emission levels.
The findings will enhance the cross border flow of goods and people and furthermore simultaneously decrease the overall emission levels of these specific corridors .
