The expected results of the project are:
- optimization of the maritime trade network between the northern shores of the High Tyrrhenian arc and the south-eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea, creating new opportunities and business relationships for economic operators and institutions.
- planning of interventions improving the performance of Porto Torres (Italy) and Beirut (Lebanon) port infrastructures as RO-RO hubs, in the framework of the freight shipping network.
- realization of the virtual platform supporting the new maritime trade network, allowing the process of shifting freight from current modes of transportation to more efficient ones.
- organization of business meetings among operators of the Euro-Mediterranean area to promote short sea shipping, so that target groups and stakeholders shall be stimulated to develop new business relationships based on the opportunities of new optimised maritime trade network.
