    Project Details


    GreCOR – Green Corridor in the North Sea Region – is an Interreg IVB North Sea Region project that started the 1st of January 2012. GreCOR will promote the development of a co-modal transport corridor in the North Sea Region. Important in this collaborative approach, is the focus on secondary networks and the hubs, and the regional hinterland around the Green transport corridor Oslo-Randstad from a co-modal perspective.
    GreCOR has 14 partners and a total budget of 3.7 M€. It started the 1 January 2012 and will be finalized 31 December 2014. The Swedish Transport Administration is the responsible lead partner for GreCOR
    GreCOR works in close collaboration with public and private stakeholders, and its overall aim is 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 is to influence the green corridor consisting of infrastructure and transport development in the area. Furthermore, GreCOR aims 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.
