The common challenge of the project Go SMarT Med is sustainable growth through innovative management of maritime freight services to mitigate the isolation of island territories.
Go SMarT Med is studying a new strategic governance to coordinate the connections between the Core ports (Genoa, Livorno, Cagliari, Palermo) and the Comprehensive ports (Toulon, Bastia) by improving the competitiveness of the island territories. The current system is not coordinated and favors the land transportation.
Overall objective of the project is to contribute to developing coordinated freight transport systems to improve the connection of secondary and tertiary nodes of the space of cooperation with TEN-T networks.
Go SMarT Medproduces a feasibility study that verifies the level of efficiency of a new network system optimized for the coordination of existing maritime freight services of ro-ro ships and containers. This system, which is the object of the governance project, is geared towards integrating fares (reducing costs for the customer), schedules (less travel time) and the frequency of lines operating in the study area.
The beneficiaries of the new system are: shipping companies, companies that send / receive goods (service customers), port operators (shipping agencies, forwarding agents, port work agencies, carriers), representatives of public institutions / policy makers. Feasibility is a closely coordinated cross-border work, carried out in 18 months of activity, with the support of partners from all regions involved in the program.
Go SMarT Med is innovative: performance evaluations are derived from real-world traffic data, collected through interviews with different actors in the supply chain, and introduced commodity traceability as a parameter to estimate the network model through which evaluate the effects of the new coordinated system.
The budget of the operation is € 647,498.41 financed 85% by ERDF funds.

The implementation of the Go Smart Med area within the Optimed platform is funded by the Interreg IT-FR Maritime Programme 2014-2020
