The ambitions of TransBaltic

  • Pan-Baltic model solutions

  • Challenges for Baltic ports

  • Human capacity building in transport operations

  • Transport sustainability and green corridors

Scenarios on the future geography of freight flows

  • Business concepts

  • Dry port development

  • Empty container management

  • Deployment of ICT toolbox for planning of intermodal supply chains

  • Competence management system in harbour logistics

  • Rail transport solutions for North-South and East-West flows

Public support for developing an integrated multimodal transport system in the BSR

Regional action plan(BSR transport system coherent inside and accessible from outside)


The foresight process by TransBaltic

  • TransBaltic motto: CONNECT – INSPIRE – SHOW NEW HORIZONS

  • Challenge of harmonising transport and cohesion policies (transport gateway + sustainable regional development)

  • Challenge of anticipating trends

  • 5 debates on the future geography of freight flows – Malmö, Vilnius, St.Petersburg, Stockholm, Bodö (March-April 2010)

  • Ca.150 stakeholders in transport and logistics attending

  • Results summarised in the foresight report by Tetraplan A/S Denmark and utilised in the TransBaltic Policy Report 2010


TransBaltic foresight scenarios

THE GREEN SCENARIO

a network of green multimodal transport corridors in the BSR  regulations by EU and other countries

THE BARENTS SCENARIO

intercontinental cargo flows attracted to the Barents Region  opening of the Northern Sea Route + transport investments on the European-Asian landbridge


Reflections from the foresight process

  • Russia holds one of the keys to the future geography of freight flows in the Baltic Sea Region

  • Threat: new East-West divide (green transport solutions no priority for new EU Member States and Russia)

  • Transport investments in Russian part of the Arctic - of primary importance for distribution of intercontinental flows

  • TransBaltic eager to keep dialogue with Russian stakeholders on their transport development priorities

  • Debates planned in Syktyvkar, Arkhangelsk and Murmansk (November 2010)
