Benchmarking of Transport Solutions in Baltic Sea Cities - report out now!

Have you been looking for a benchmarking report that would look into different areas of mobility in the port areas? Look no further.

The HUPMOBILE project has published its report "Benchmarking of Transport Solutions in Baltic Sea Cities - Selection of best practices in sustainable mobility solutions connected to ports" which aims to build the capabilities of transport planners and authorities in identifying new solutions and approaches in organising sustainable transport connected to port areas, add new ideas into stakeholder collaboration and assess the most efficient approaches in the local context.

Four themes have been highlighted in the report:

  1. rail transport solution (in connection to ports) in leading Baltic cities;
  2. different approaches in organising Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS),
  3. electrification of transportation in the Baltic Sea Region;
  4. existing logistics solutions (in connection to ports).

These four thematic areas were chosen according to the interest of the cities participating in the HUPMOBILE project: City of Turku (Finland), City of Riga (Latvia), City of Tallinn (Estonia), and City of Hamburg (Germany). The report does not give any recommendations or conclusions on which solutions to choose, but rather acts a collection of useful information that raises awareness on which of the solutions already exist and have been tested by other cities in the region to aid decision-making processes.

As the report will be updated with new solutions from time to time, check the project website for the latest version (the current version is dated March 2021).

About the HUPMOBILE project

HUPMOBILE's (towards integrated green urban mobility of people and goods) objective is to provide a holistic approach to the planning, implementation, optimisation and management of integrated, sustainable mobility solutions in Baltic Sea port cities. Mobility in this context includes both people and goods (i.e. freight, cargo logistics and delivery). Concrete examples of innovations addressed are:

  • greener urban logistics and combinations of goods- and passenger traffic;
  • intelligent traffic systems-based services;
  • tools for stakeholder participation;
  • new tools for transportation mobility management and Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS).
