Vinnova - Environmental incentive schemes for ports

The purpose of this project is to examine from an interdisciplinary approach how environmental differentiated dues and incentives in ports can reduce the environmental impact caused by all transport modes that call at the port. Both land and sea transport to and from the ports are addressed. The project’s main focus is at local level to improve the air quality in the seaport, but also climate impact is included. The long term goal of this work is to promote a shift to more environmentally efficient transport, vehicles, ships, technologies and alternative fuels. This is an important task in order to achieve the climate and environmental goals for transport.

The work will ultimately result in estimates of expected impacts on emissions to air, congestion and energy use in the introduction of environmentally differentiated fees and incentives.

Port of Trelleborg is a project partner in the role of “a big port in a small city” where we share the project our views and reflections.

The project extends between December 2006 and November 2018 (2 years)

Project partners: University of Gothenborg, IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute, Port of Trelleborg, Ports of Stockholm and Port of Gothenborg, among others.


Region Skåne cooperates in this project with other regions, authorities and businesses in the Baltic Sea region in order to develop efficient and environmentally friendly freight transports. An important starting point is to link to the main transport network TEN-T, which is identified by the EU.

The purpose of the project is to clarify how Skåne can benefit from the European initiatives and contribute to the implementation. Region Skåne focuses in this project on the cross-border transport exchange between Skåne and Poland.

Port of Trelleborg supports Region Skåne in the project.

Actors: Regions, national authorities, research institutions, innovation platforms and business in countries around the southern Baltic Sea. Region Blekinge is in charge.

The project extends between 2016 and 2019.

Scandria II

The project approach of Scandria®2Act follows an initiative of regions located along the Baltic Sea Region stretch of the Scandinavian-Mediterranean Core Network Corridor for a harmonized corridor development. Representing urban as well as multimodal nodes along the corridor, regional development challenges associated with transport are addressed.

Main objective is to foster clean, multimodal transport to increase connectivity and competitiveness of corridor regions while minimising negative environmental impact induced by transport.

Port of Trelleborg supports Region Skåne in the project.

The project extends between May 2016 and April 2019 (3 years)

Project partners: 19 associated partners from Germany and Nordics, of which we are one.
