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, 2022.
