As an operative and policy supporting framework, WiderMoS will improve the interface between maritime transport and other modes (mainly rail), developing new port/ship/train interfaces and efficient port-hinterland connections, connecting ports and integrating origins and destinations, and bridging gaps in and between different trade corridors.
In other words, WiderMoS aims at facilitating the homogeneous connection between Motorways of the Sea and the TEN-T core network corridors.
Its activities include:
• MoS prospective study in 2020 and beyond.
• In-depth analysis of some key topics including customs procedures and logistic processes, linked to the future governance model of the core network corridors.
• Five pilots in the Mediterranean, Atlantic and the Baltic Sea focused on the development of an IT Corridor Management Platform acting as a Logistic Single Window for the integration of sea-based transport services in the logistic chain, with a focus on paperless logistics/e-customs processes and with priority for the integration of inland terminals and rail transport.
