PLANET organised its 2nd workshop to explore regional and local implications for the RALP Corridor planning of the expansion of new trade routes

PLANET celebrated on 2 December its 2nd workshop to discuss the simulations results for the baseline years 2030 and 2050 of emerging trade routes on the Rhine-Alpine (RALP) Corridor. This workshop took place during the 13th edition of the Rhine-Alpine talks and was attended by 35 people, EGTC members and relevant stakeholders along the Rhine-Alpine Corridor.

The PLANET project addresses the challenges of assessing the impact of emerging global trade corridors on the TEN-T network and ensuring effective integration to the Global Network. EU has been playing a leading role in further advancing the global transport flows and logistics and in understanding the impact of the TENT-T network of global transport and geo-economic trends.

The π—₯π—”π—Ÿπ—£ 𝗖𝗼𝗿𝗿𝗢𝗱𝗼𝗿 is one of the three Living Labs of the PLANET project, looking into the potential impact on the RALP Corridor of handling considerable volumes of goods due to expanding Eurasian rail freight.

Use Case 3 of Living Lab 2 (LL2), led by Panteia, looks into the potential impact on the Rhine-Alpine (RALP) Corridor of handling considerable volume of goods due to expanding Eurasian rail freight. For the effective impact assessment three simulations (year 2019, 2030 and 2050) are developed in order to highlight the destinations of these flows and terminals facilitating inter-modal connections for first and last mile. The simulations relate to not only the intercontinental rail freight connections between China, Russia and Europe (Belt and Road Initiative), but also the Middle East and Northeast Europe (International North-South Corridor).

The purpose of the 2nd workshop organised by EGTC and PANTEIA was to introduce PLANET project and present and discuss the simulation results from the baseline years 2030 and 2050. After a keynote of Dr. Cecilia Braun (EGTC) and Menno Menist (Panteia), Ivo Hindriks (Panteia) presented the PLANET’s simulations and results. Finally, an interactive Q&A session and breakout discussions involving all participants took place. The full agenda is available here.
