GreCOR worked in close collaboration with public and private stakeholders, and its overall aim was to improve knowledge about the logistic needs and conditions and develop and implement the first green corridor in the North Sea Region in a strategic policy setting.
The main idea of the project was to influence the green corridor consisting of infrastructure and transport development in the area. Furthermore, GreCOR aimed to:
- Improve knowledge about the logistics needs and conditions in the corridor
- Test innovative logistics solutions through the development of pilot projects
- Promote the development of sustainable transport in the North Sea Region
- Focus on the role of the hubs and the regional hinterland
- Understand and develop the logistics utility creation in a green corridor taking a co-modal perspective.
One very important tool for reaching the goals of corridor development is a liaison group to which we invite all relevant organizations, stakeholders and companies to join.
