Kick-off year : 2016 Title : Harmonisation benchmark for inland multimodal hubs Programme : ERA-NET Status : Ongoing Link : www.hubharmony.eu

HubHarmony aims to develop a better understanding of sustainable transport systems, through development of a harmonization benchmark for multimodal hubs. It helps to improve hub processes and gain synergies from the hub network.

These goals are achieved by the development of a harmonization benchmark for inland multimodal hubs. Moreover, an analysis of the impact of future value added services on the local economy and on the development of inland multimodal hubs will be provided.

 

Who can benefit?

The project work encompasses dry ports, inland terminals and freight centres.

The HubHarmony develops a harmonization benchmark - a scoring system, which enables an evaluation of the harmonization level of operational procedures and the service offer at inland multimodal hubs. Operational procedures include hub technologies, business processes as well as administrative aspects and services include both current services and potential future services.

The harmonization benchmark will enable logistics operators to plan the development of hubs and strengthen their corporate identity. Moreover, it will enable to monitor the progress of harmonization and to collect valuable data for future policy actions. HubHarmony will give insights into future dynamics and will indicate upcoming needs of transport systems with a focus on interoperability and harmonization of inland multimodal hubs.
