CLOSER – Connecting Long and Short-Distance Networks for Efficient Transport - deals with interconnections between short- and long-distance transport networks, aiming at the improvement of door-to-door movements of both passenger and freight transport by co-modality, i.e. the efficient use of different traffic modes.Eight partners from seven European countries are cooperating in this transport research project, which is funded by the European Commission within the 7th Framework Programme.
She acknowledges the achievements of CLOSER: »Particularly in freight logistics, no sufficient amount of data has been collected so far which can be used by operators of terminals to improve their efficiency. By acquiring and analyzing qualitative and quantitative data of various interchanges, the project CLOSER presents a first step towards a comprehensive account of the situation in Europe.«
