RTF- Real Time Ferries
The Baltic Sea region depends on well-functioning ferry links as significant parts of its international and domestic flows of goods and passengers include ferry trips and involve intermodal transport chains. The project "Real Time Ferries (RTF)" extends the use of real-time information to optimise intermodal transport chains for goods and people in the Baltic Sea Region. It sets up a collaborative BSR ferry real time data hub that provides a shares base infrastructure to collect, process and deploy real-time info along intermodal (ports and logistics, public transport, ship navigation) door-to-door transport chains across the region. It is intended to establish 5-10 pilot applications for different situations, such as redirecting goods and passengers in case the trip is cancelled.
By the end of the project, it will be easier and cheaper for all relevant transport actors to generate and utilise the solution for optimising intermodal transport chains for both: goods and people, across the entire region.
