Relevant projects carried out in Sustainable Logistics
- SUPAIR: Sustainable Ports in the Adriatic-Ionian Region” (2017/2019)
It is a project cofinanced by the Adriatic-Ionian Programme INTERREG V-B Transnational 2014-2020.
Ports are core nodes for multimodal transport in the Adriatic-Ionian basin and strategic key drivers for economic growth: reducing negative environmental impacts is essential for a sustainable development of the area. The project goal is the reduction of emissions from shipping and on-shore port operations, enhancing port authorities’ capacity to plan and implement low-carbon and multimodal transport and mobility solutions.
- Peripheral Access: Transnational cooperation and partnership for better public transport in peripheral and cross-border regions (2017/2020)
It is a project cofinanced by Central Europe Program. Peripheral Access improves mobility in specifically peripheral areas such as rural, remotely located or border regions. This is crucial as 93% of the EU territories are peripheral areas. The project will analyse this situation in detail and implement innovative pilot actions.
- Novelog: New Cooperative Business Model and Guidance for Sustainable City Logistics (2015/2018)
It is a project cofinanced by H2020 Programme. The scope of the project is to enable the knowledge and understanding of freight distribution and service trips by providing guidance for implementing effective and sustainable policies and measures. This guidance will support the choice of applicable solutions for urban freight and transport services, and will facilitate stakeholders collaboration and the development, field testing and transfer of the best governance and business models.
- Sus Freight: Sustainable Freight Transport (2013/2014)
It was a project co-financed by the Alpine Space Program. SusFreight aimed at addressing the environmental problems related to transports through the natural bottleneck represented by the regions composing the Alpine Space geographical area.

The idea was to link together by a a railway ring the urban areas of Trieste and Capodistria, the port of Gorizia and Nova Gorica, the airports of Venice, Ronchi dei Legionari and Lubiana. The governance of this transnational territorial system requires an institutional network able to work together as a whole territorial system.
- EURIDICE: European Inter-Disciplinary Research on Intelligent Cargo for Efficient, Safe and Environment-friendly Logistics (2008/2013)
The project was co-financed by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration".
The prjoject developed the concepts, technological solutions and business models to establish an advanced information services for freight transportation in Europe. The project is built on the Intelligent Cargo concept, defined by the following vision statement:
“In three years time, most of the goods flowing through European freight corridors will be ‘intelligent’, i.e.:
self-aware, context-aware and connected through a global telecommunication network to support a wide
range of information services for logistic operators, industrial users and public authorities.”
- TRIM: Transport Infrastructure Monitoring (2008/2011)
The project was co-financed by the Interreg IV Italy Austria, European territorial cooperation 2007/2013.
