RTF - Using ferry real time information to optimise intermodal transport chains in the Baltic Sea Region
RTF fosters the utilisation of ferry real time information to optimise intermodal transport chains for goods and people in the Baltic Sea Region (BSR). To achieve this, the actors from three “domains” (ship navigation, public transport, logistics & ports) combine efforts and interact. RTF sets up a collaborative BSR ferry real time data hub and allows to ensure easier and cheaper ways for all relevant transport actors (e.g. ferry companies, forwarders, public transport providers, bus operators, car satnav providers, port operators, stevedores, etc.) to generate and to utilise these data for optimising of intermodal transport chains for both goods and people across the entire region.
The project is implemented by international team, joining 23 project partners and 21 associated organisations.
The project is co-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund.
