Finished reports and outputs produced by Bothnian Green Logistic Corridor.
Twenty-nine partners across five countries have been working within different fields towards a single, joint goal: to connect northern Scandinavia with the markets in Europe. Our aim – to develop a strategy on how to develop the existing Bothnian Corridor into an efficient, reliable and green transport corridor. A lot of studies have been done – here you can find all of our reports, made within the different WPs
BGLC – Final Action Plan (Inventory of actors, transport volumes and infrastructure in the BGLC-Corridor)
WP3 consists of five different activities with five different goals:
1) Upgrade the Bothnian Corridor to a Green Corridor
2) Find out how port of Narvik should handle the increased ore shipments
3) Study semitrailer models and find one that we think will work in the Swedish weather
4) Learn how to make the railways more reliable and how to fix errors quicker than we do today
The outcomes of these activities will be carried over into the project’s other areas and form a base to the development of BGLS Future Strategy.
Evaluation of the re-opening of the Pori-Parkano-Haapamaki Railroad Track
WP4 aims to take the studies made in the project into reality. By working in close cooperation with cargo owners and private industry, BGLC is aiming to change transport modes from road to rails and sea and from contacts to contracts. We want to show good examples and pilots of new market and business models, for example the BGLC A2A Corridor.
WP5 has been working to understand the impacts infrastructure has on regional and industrial development and growth. This will broaden the decision basis for infrastructure investments and will also help decision makers to form well-founded decisions.
WP6 works to develop a Bothnian Green Transport Strategy that includes a corridor management structure and a stakeholder’s network. The purpose is to facilitate the trans-national cooperation to obtain optimized, green and seamless transport corridors.
Our five Think tanks were produced in co-operation with Baltic Transport Journal an international printed bimonthly magazine focused on transport in the Baltic Sea region (BSR) with its nine countries: Poland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Russia, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
