Inland ports are an essential part of the EU’s transport infrastructure along the core Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T).
They are key to the EU’s connectivity, economy and regions, and will play a crucial role in the European Green Deal’s ambition to reduce transport emissions by 90% by 2050.
These elements will form the basis for the development of a quality management system that monitors the environmental and sustainable performance of the ports. This system will be tested in a minimum of ten inland ports.
Throughout the study the involvement of stakeholders is key and participation is highly welcomed. Please get in touch via the contact page.
The study will focus on four key elements relating to inland ports:
Inland Ports are essential to achieving the EU Green Deal and decarbonising our transport systems.
Inland Waterway Transport (IWT) holds untapped potential for the future of sustainable urban transport.
Digitalisation is a key tool to unlocking the sustainability potential of inland ports. It can transform and streamline processes, helping ports to be more efficient and adopt sustainable practices.
Uniquely positioned, inland ports face environmental regulations while striving for sustainable growth. Port managers urgently require practical, cost-effective tools to facilitate the environmental and sustainable development of ports.
We also welcome your feedback on inland ports and how they can be improved.
