Project target was to improve 3 East-West direction transport corridors in Central Baltic region. These are Northern corridor Örebro – Turku – St. Petersburg, middle corridor Örebro – Tallinn – St.Petersburg and Southern corridor Örebro – Riga – St. Petersburg.
The EfficientFlow project improved the flow of goods and passengers through the two corridors of Gävle-Rauma and Stockholm-Turku in Baltic Sea Region by implementation of Sea Traffic Management concept.
The project had two blocks of activities:
1. Port flow optimisation - development of Port Activity Application
Project improved the transport corridor Via Baltica (road E67), a key North-South direction transport corridor in Estonia and Latvia by taking into use Intelligent Transport System. Project activities included installation of new road weather stations, different variable message and warning signs as well as improvement of the existing traffic lights by making them to work in adaptive regime considering impulses given by traffic sensors.
The main aim with the project “Smart Logistics and Freight Villages Initiative” (SmartLog) was to develop new Internet-of-things (IoT) solution based on block-chain technology, that would help logistics and transportation companies to improve and make their supply chains more efficient.
Companies from Sweden, Finland, Estonia and Latvia were involved in the project along two TEN-T corridors: North Sea – Baltic and Scandinavian – Mediterranean corridor.
The REFEC project aimed at reinforcing the establishment of the Eastern Finland – Estonia transport corridor by focusing on concrete measures to support the establishment of the Loviisa – Kunda ferry connection.
The system for public transportation at sea differs in Stockholm and Åland archipelago, but project ADAPT tackled the joint challenges in offering a safe, timesaving, and fuel-efficient public transportation at sea.
The ferry connection between Helsinki West Harbour and Tallinn Old City Harbour is one of the busiest in the world with over 8 million annual passengers. Current traffic creates substantial congestion, noise and other negative externalities at both ports and in both cities.
FinEst Smart Mobility piloted five ICT solutions in the harbours and adjacent areas, to find solutions for these challenges. The pilots focused on better integration of different transport modes in inner-city and cross-border traffic.
