The Action is located in the Western Ligurian Sea port system (Ports of Genoa and Savona/Vado) on the Rhine-Alpine Core Network Corridor.
It is part of Global Project aiming at enhancing the interoperability of transport services to ensure a sustainable and efficient transport system and to optimise the integration of transport modes.
In the long run, the Action will improve road accessibility to the ports by reducing the gate-in gate-out average time in the peak hours from 60 to 40 minutes. It will also increase the port rail potential by 30% additional trains on a yearly basis and it will increase the ports’ capacity by 500,000 TEUs/year.
The E-Bridge (Emergency and BRoad Information Development for the Western Ligurian Sea port system) consists of a series of studies and pilots to develop a set of 3 innovative modules:
- Smart port and inland buffer area management;
- Innovative digital last mile rail;
- An advanced road gates system.
These modules will be fully interoperable with the existing systems.
