GIFT Project (Green Intermodal Freight Transportation)

The main aim of GIFT project is to map, analyze and evaluate the status of the transport sector in the SOUTH EAST EUROPE Regions and to propose new policies and strategies in infrastructure, processes, assets, ICT, legislation, norms and harmonization/ standardization issues, in order to promote innovative green intermodal freight transport corridors. GIFT project includes three Pan-European Transport Corridors, namely IV, V and VII that cover almost the entire SEE region. In order to fulfill the initial aim, GIFT consortium has a role to map and assess the current status in terms of transport strategy, operations and policies of the three selected Corridors. Subsequently, based on the findings of our analysis, GIFT project must synthesize concrete and pragmatic proposals for the improvement of the current transport network and for relevant policies in oreder to promote green transport in the selected corridors. The main result of the project is to assess the impact of the proposed improvements and policies in terms of trip duration, cost, risk, and CO2 emissions.
