The Alps are a sensitive ecosystem that has to be protected from pollutant emissions and climate change. The alpine road freight transport has enormous ecological and sociocultural effects on the alpine habitat. Most actors such as forwarders, port operators, administrations and consumers, are aware of these negative effects and they are working on their own technical or regulatory solutions. However, a constructive and participatory dialogue between all involved actors, in order to promote sustainable freight transport within the Alps, has not been established so far.

Alpine Innovation for Combined Transport

In addition to technical innovations, the Interreg Alpine Space project "AlpInnoCT", is providing an access for transversal and transnational dialogues, between all actors of the alpine freight transport, at regional, national and European levels.

Expected results

  • Description of the status quo of the European transport system with a focus on combined transport
  • Recommendations for politics and economy, about suitable models of combined transport
  • Guidelines for the integration of intermodal approaches into the everyday life of freight forwarders and port operators
  • Alpine-wide dialogue platform with dialogue events for the exchange of knowledge and capabilities
  • Toolbox for implementation with all compiled experiences
