URSA MAJOR neo (UMneo) deploys ITS services to improve freight traffic along the Rhine-Alpine and Scandinavian-Mediterranean Core Network Corridors, linking North Sea ports, the Rhine and Ruhr area, metropolitan areas in southern Germany and in northern Italy and Mediterranean ports down to Sicily.
UMneo builds upon the two EU co-funded projects UM and UM2. It extends the scope of the work geographically and conceptually, by addressing intermodal freight aspects.
UMneo provides direct user benefits to international truck drivers and hauliers (better truck parking, navigation, safety, less delays and uncertainties). UMneo includes real life pilots to test feasibility, suitability and added-value prior to a potential large scale deployment of innovative C-ITS services.
