MoS Sweden-Poland Sustainable Sea-Hinterland Services
Project partners: Port of Trelleborgs, Port of Szczecin Świnoujście, Swinoujscie Ferry Terminal, Trelleborg Municipality and Unity Line.
Comparing this project with the previous MoS Sustainable Trelleborg-Swinousjcie MoS Services, this project, covers also works and studies but in this project the studies will be made in Sweden and the investments in Poland. Since Port of Szczecin Świnoujście and Swinoujscie Ferry Terminal applied for money from the cohesion fund we made and submitted two identical applications. Our common aim is to upgrade our ports’ infrastructure, developing intermodal transport and integrating with hinterland corridors in order to be able to handle the same kind of vessels and intermodal traffic in the ports on both sides.
Lead partner is Port of Szczecin Świnoujście
The project extends between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2021.
Real Time Ferries
Real Time Ferries is an EU project aimed at developing a common and unified system for sharing information on departure and arrival times for ships. Those who register in Real Time Ferries share information to the system but have also the opportunity to retrieve real-time information that they then use to improve the service to their customers.
Port of Trelleborg participates in the project, together with Stena Line and Hogia, with the purpose of using the information to enable pre notification for pick-up or drop-off of trailers. Information about a ship’s arrival from the shipping company is linked to a unit booking in Port of Trelleborg and is made available to the haulage company. The haulage company completes the information via a web interface with the driver’s name and the tugmaster’s registration number and sends it back to Port of Trelleborg. At the same time, a work order is created to pick-up the device sent to the driver’s mobile phone through an app. When the device is unloaded in the port, the driver can enter the port via a QR code.
The project runs from May 25, 2017 – September 30, 2020 (3 years).
22 partners (e.g. THAB, Sjöfartsverket, Stena Line, Rostock Port, Skånetrafiken).
Lead partner is University of Rostock.
