More efficient international sea and land logistics: Efficient Flow project
Satakunta’s University of Applied Sciences (SAMK’s) research group, Smart Urban Business (SUB), in cooperation with the project leader Swedish Maritime Administration (SMA) and other participants in the project, such as Gävle port in Sweden and Rauma port in Finland are developing a new Ship and Port ICT-application to enhance port operations in the future.
In addition to Efficient Flow projects’ comprehensive approach, the goal is to improve logistics and make the material and passenger flows between the two central Baltic Sea routes more efficient by utilizing the Sea Traffic Management (STM) system.
Target areas for Efficient Flow project are ports between Gävle-Rauma and the Stockholm-Turku seaway, where safer encounters of ships will be examined. Duration for the project is 1.3.2018 – 28.3.2021.
The public resources invested in Efficient Flow project will contribute to a long-term and practical innovation in the operational activities of these ports. This will also improve the digital development and operational capabilities for the ports significantly.
At the same time this will help to achieve the goals set for transport policy of the countries involved in the project, the Central Baltic region and the European Union. Efficient Flow project aims to have 7% savings between the ports and seaways mentioned above.
