Territorial systems in Logistics and the Transport of Goods: comparative analysis of working experiences.

Project Description

Analysis of logistic capacities in the participating territories (Piaceza, Novara, Lleida, Tarragona, Girona and Provence-Alpes Côte d’Azur). In these areas, the logistics and transportation sectors show a high degree of specialization. These territories are home to the main European corridors – which can actually compete with those in Northern Europe.

The increasing capacities in port traffic management in the North, South and East Mediterranean constitute a great opportunity for growth and development for the local population. It is also an important opportunity for economic integration since the port and infrastructure system can ensure better complementariety in technical skills and communication routes – both of which have to be managed through cooperation. There already exist common initiatives to manage logistics in a sustainable and safe way since the Mediterranean is especially sensitive to environmental disasters.

 Furthermore, Mediterranean provinces often have powers in the planning and execution of works.


The project aims to identify strengths and weaknesses in different experiences as well as success stories and enabling factors for growth. Moreover it seeks to promote the exchange of best practices that could be replicated in deprived and disadvantaged areas.


  • Exchange of best practices

  • Seminars

  • Publications


  • Elaboration of a study on logistic and transport systems in the Mediterranean

  • Final seminar in Piacenza



We urgently need a joint action of policy makers, private sectors, universities and civil society because the future of tourism must be sustainable
