About the Project: 

One of the key elements in the Northern Dimension transport market is the concept of the Baltic Sea Motorways aiming at the promotion of maritime transport, multimodality covering also hinterland and logistics in general. Aim of the Baltic Sea Motorways is to make transport in the BSR more competitive. Baltic Sea Motorways is a future vision carried by most of the Baltic Sea countries, including Russian Federation, to enhance co-operation and to optimise transport systems of the BSR.

The vision is implemented by BaSIM, under the TEDIM umbrella and is one of the first Baltic Sea Motorways projects. BaSIM creates a sustainable basis for investments in the future aiming at solving existing and coming up bottlenecks in BSR and transnational communication and co-operation.

Therefore BaSIM emphasizes simultaneous actions which are needed to develop both physical and information infrastructure within BSR, for an overall improvement of logistics productivity and competitiveness.

The project is divided into four integrated WPs with the following achievements so far:

  • Standardised ICT architecture: report on user requirements;
  • ICT capability evaluation report;
  • user documentations of the solution;
  • draft reports of the new BaSIM interoperability architecture and two implementation cases.
