The COMODALCE project was approved in the framework of the 3rd Interreg Central Europe Call for Proposals in 2018, with the specific objective: “Improving the coordination of freight transport stakeholders for more multimodal, environmentally friendly solutions.” It has a three-years’ duration and started on the 1st of April 2019. It is part of the Interreg Central Europe program and involves a total of 10 project partners from 5 EU countries: Germany, Italy, Slovenia, Hungary and Poland. During the project, pilot actions will be tested in the field of innovative coordination platforms, activities for the reduction of bottlenecks on the intermodal network and the use of new containerized railway transport systems. Luka Koper, d.d. is the Lead Partner of the WP3 where the aim is to prepare a regional Action Plan – based on 8 individual action plans that will be prepared by all project partners. The final result will be a “Transnational tool for promoting coordinated multimodal ICT-assisted freight transport in Central Europe”.
The COMODALCE project seeks to increase cooperation and coordination among multimodal freight transport stakeholders in Central Europe, using innovative ICT systems by involving some of the most important ports, rail operators and terminals creating multimodal traffic flows. As part of the pilot activity, the Port of Koper will provide the development of a tool that will optimize the use of the rail network within the port in order to speed up and streamline data exchange. The equipment to be provided by the Port of Koper will be intended for the reading of containers on wagons during transport to/from the port of Koper.
The European Regional Development Fund co-funds 85% of project’s activities.
