NÖKS

Prestudy – Short sea shipping in Øresund-Kattegat-Skagerrak (NÖKS) – models and systems to move freight transport from road to sea.

The purpose of the project is to create a platform for collaboration and knowledge sharing between industry, authorities and knowledge institutions in the ØKS region. The project aims to create holistic, sustainable, and efficient transportation solutions and sustainable maritime growth and development. Land transport will face congestion issues in the future due to capacity limitations in parts of the road network. Ship transport can provide capacity increases, but currently face emmission and transit-time issues. The project aims to deliver data and models which can facilitate a common intermodal transport infrastructure in Kattegat-Skagerrak. 

The goal is to move the transportation of freight and passengers from road to sea to reduce the harmful emissions from transportation.
