Ci muoviamo verso il futuro


Nel marzo 2016 è stata costituita una nuova società per iniziativa di “Consorzio ZAI” (75% di share) e “Quadrante Servizi” (25% di share), per realizzare e stimolare la ricerca e lo sviluppo di tecnologie innovative e di nuovi modelli di processo (e di business) nei settori dei trasporti e della logistica nell’Interporto Quadrante Europa di Verona. Consorzio ZAILOG quindi rappresenta oggi l'organismo di riferimento per i progetti di ricerca e sviluppo dell'Interporto Quadrante Europa di Verona.

IMIS Call for Expression of Interest

IMIS specifically addresses multimodal hubs to help them matching their actual challenges and innovation needs with EU funded R&I projects‘ suitable innovative solutions. With this Call for Expression of Interest, up to three multimodal hubs (test cases) will be selected, studied and it will be demonstrated if and how innovation implementation can be speed up. Specifically the multimodal hub owners or operators (selected applicants) will be supported by experts for the following tasks:

innovation needs of selected multimodal hubs will be investigated and analysed,
suitable EU funded R&I projects addressing the needs of the test cases will be identified and potential impacts arising from the application of innovative solutions will be pointed out;
plans to implement the innovative solutions in the selected locations will be developed.
Applications from multimodal hubs will be impartially and objectively evaluated on the basis of the aspects highlighted in the call specifications, such as the level of multimodality of the transport network, the size of the hub and its geographical location in the TEN-T network.

The Alps are a sensitive ecosystem to be protected from pollutant emissions & climate change. Continued growth in freight traffic volume leads to environmental problems. These trends reinforce the need to review existing transport & develop innovative models to protect the Alpine Space (AS) as set out e.g. in the EU White Paper 2011. EUSALP set the aim to strengthen ecological transport & establish more efficient freight transport corridors. But often the efficiency of Combined Transport (CT) is low. Therefore, the project Alpine Innovation for Combined Transport (AlpInnoCT) tackles the main challenge to raise CT efficiency & productivity. The application of production industry knowhow (which is ideal to improve processes) in CT is a new approach which includes an analysis of existing strategies, policies & processes focusing on CT, thus, AlpInnoCT contributes to a sustainable system with an easier access to CT & fosters the utilization of this low-carbon transport method. The approach leads to following outputs:

1. Description of the state of the art of the European transport system with focus on CT

2. Recommendations for an ideal CT-model concept by transfer of production industry knowhow

3. Guideline for the integration of innovative intermodal approaches into daily CT business

4. Alpine wide dialogue platform as information exchange involving economy, political authorities and civil society

5. Toolbox of Action (Handbook)

Logistics service providers will benefit from improved processes & an easier CT access. Wagon & semitrailer producers obtain insights into CT innovations. NGOs & institutions get a dialogue platform to state their interests and awareness about CT innovations. Politicians & decision makers will be better prepared to set the future CT framework with regards to environment. As transport happens in an AS network, the project contents are developed in a unique transnational public-private partnership.
