SmartLogi (Smart & intelligent Logistics) – completed

LCA Logistik Center Austria Süd(LCAS), the Alpe-Adria University of Klagenfurt and the Port of Trieste started a joint project to evaluate and develop a rail customs corridor between the two locations. Under the title SmartLogi (Smart & intelligent Logistics), cross-border cooperation should be simplified and strengthened, and the burden on the environment should be reduced. Project status: completed.

Smartlogi aimed to improve operational and institutional cooperation on sustainable multimodal transport options and should also serve as support for the follow-up project “Rail Customs Corridor”.

This project was funded with a total volume of approx. 1.3 million euros from the Interreg program Austria-Italy, to which the Carinthian project partners’ own contributions were co-financed by the Carinthian Economic Development Fund (KWF).

The term “multimodal transport” refers to the use of different means of transport within a certain period of time, for example from the beginning of a transport route to the final delivery of the goods. Within this transport route, the goods are transported using different modes of transport, such as by truck on the road or on freight trains by rail.

The main focus is on overcoming a number of administrative and technological challenges that currently significantly impede the road-to-rail modal shift. The aim is to use the cross-border action plan to reduce the effects of freight transport on environmental pollution, greenhouse gas emissions and noise and at the same time to optimize processes in order to make the corresponding transport activities in the Alpine region more efficient. In addition, the cooperation between the Carinthian logistics hub “LCA-Süd” and the port of Trieste should be significantly strengthened through the development of a joint pilot project. The latter to create a cross-border rail customs corridor in order to create long-term cooperation in freight transport within the program area at an operational and institutional level.

Smartlogi aimed to make multimodal transport in our territory more competitive and attractive, to increase the modal shift from road to rail, while helping to protect the environment.
