MACO POLO - MARKET CONTEXT

  • annual freight transport growth much higher than overall economic growth
  • road +35%, short sea shipping +31%, inland waterway +9%,rail +6%
  • short sea shipping: strong, sustained dynamism
  • inland waterway: considerable unexploited potential
  • rail: halted relative decline since 2001, higher increase in states with early market opening
  • environmental impacts of transport remain high: 1% of GDP, road congestion cost 1% of GDP
slide3

MARCO POLO – POLITICAL CONTEXT

  • 2001: Transport White Paper: intermodality as key concept (shifting the balance, linking the modes)
  • 2003: MARCO POLO programme (2003-2006) to support intermodal services and alternatives to road-only transport until commercial viability
  • 2006: Keep Europe Moving - Mid-term review of 2001 White Paper
    • co-modality: promotion of optimal use and integration of modes (continuity of policy, no U-turn)
    • logistics: using existing capacities more efficiently, cutting costs, reducing environmental impact
slide4

MARCO POLO I

  • MARCO POLO I (2003 – 2006) : shifting freight off the road to more environmental friendly transport modes – modal shift
  • Budget: € 102 million
  • 4 Calls for proposals published
  • 3 different action types: Modal shift actions, Common learning actions and Catalyst actions

MARCO POLO II

  • Continuing Marco Polo I with larger scale and scope
  • Duration: 2007-2013
  • Budget: 450 M € more than twofold increase of annual budget
  • Larger possibility to finance infrastructure – if linked to the service
  • Larger geographical scope – close third countries
  • 5 action types; 2 new innovative ones:
    • Motorways of the Sea
    • Traffic Avoidance Actions
slide16

MARCO POLO II – Key Features

  • objective: shift international increase in road freight off the road (road freight transport estimated growth of 20.5 billion tkm/year in EU-25 in the period 2007 to 2013)
  • risk funding, business-driven
  • all segments of international freight (except air)
  • services only <> no research, studies or (core) infrastructure
slide17

MARCO POLO II – Key Features

  • legal entity: commercial undertakings only (private or public)
  • eligible for participation:
    • EU-27 Member States
    • “close third countries”
  • eligible for EC-funding:
    • EU-27 Member States
    • EFTA & EEA States after conclusion of specific agreement
    • Candidate and close third countries after Memoranda of Understanding
  • European dimension
    • international routes (EU Member States and close third countries)
    • min. 2 undertakings,1 of them in EU – but exceptionally also1 EU MS
slide18

MARCO POLO II – Key Features

  • Eligible costs: only costs incurred after submission date of the application – even if the action starts earlier
  • No profit allowed: during the (accumulated) years for funding – does not exclude the possibility to show profit sometime in the period
  • Viability: - the project should show profit and continue after MP funding
  • No state aid allowed: maximum combined public grant allowed = maximum subsidy rate of eligible costs of each action type (35% - 50%)
slide19

MARCO POLO II – Key Features

  • No unacceptable distortion of competition: - a detailed justification must be given!
  • Credibility essential: proven by letters of intent/commitment, good business plan, market study etc. –presently the main reason for failing the evaluations!
  • Financial capacity: last annual financial statement
  • Technical capacity: track records and experience of all partners, CV’s etc.
slide20

MARCO POLO II – Key Features

Modal shift actions

  • New or significantly enhanced existing transport services
  • Robust, not necessarily innovative: just shift freight off the road
  • Maximum subsidy of 1 € per 500 tkm shifted
  • Minimum grant threshold: 500 000 € or 250 M tkm shifted
  • Subsidy rate up to 35 %
  • Maximum duration 3 years
slide21

MARCO POLO II – Key Features

Catalyst actions

  • Overcoming structural market barriers
  • Highly innovative: causing a real breakthrough
  • Subsidy rate up to 35%
  • Minimum grant threshold: 2 M €
  • Maximum duration 5 years
slide22

MARCO POLO II – Key Features

Common learning actions

  • Improve co-operation and sharing of know-how
  • Mutual training: coping with an increasingly complex transport & logistics market
  • Subsidy rate up to 50%
  • Minimum subsidy threshold 250 000 €
  • Duration up to 2 years
slide23

MARCO POLO II – Key Features

Motorways of the Sea

  • frequent, large volume intermodal services based on SSS
  • Subsidy rate up to 35%
  • Maximum subsidy of 1 € per 500 tkm shifted
  • Minimum subsidy threshold 2,5 M€ - at least 1.25 billion tkm to be shifted per contract
  • Duration up to 5 years
slide24

MARCO POLO II – Key Features

Motorways of the Sea

  • same general objective of sustainable efficient transport but different approach
  • funding is fully complementary
slide25

MARCO POLO II – Key Features

Traffic avoidance actions- innovative integration of production and transport logistics – less empty runs, reduction of volume/weight etc.

  • Subsidy rate up to 35%
  • Actual, measurable and sustainable traffic avoidance of at least 10% of the freight volume
  • Maximum subsidy of 1 € per 500 tkm (or 25 vehicle- km)
  • Minimum subsidy threshold 1 M€ - at least 500 M tkm (25 M vehicle-km) to be avoided per contract
  • Duration up to 5 years
slide26

MARCO POLO II – Key Features

Ancillary infrastructure – Funding rules

  • Infrastructure required for timely completion ofnew modally shifted transport service
  • Works are completed within 24 months after start of action
  • Transport service starts within 3 months after the completion of the works
  • Other EU funding, especially TEN-T funding, is excluded
  • Total aid (state aid and EC funding) not more than 50% of eligible costs
  • For all action types except MOD and CLA actions
