Blue Supply Chains

The Blue Supply Chains project supports port authorities and port operators to decarbonise port operations by advancing electrification, providing alternative fuels strategies and setting up green transport chains.
Project summary

Ports are essential for global trade and prosperity, but at the same time contribute to the emission of pollutants through freight traffic and port activities. Ports can be an important factor in achieving European and national climate goals and will also play an important role in the storage and onward transport of alternative fuels in the future. The "Blue Supply Chains" project supports port authorities and port operators in implementing long-term measures to decarbonize port locations.

The project follows different approaches supporting decarbonization in ports:

  1. Evaluation and piloting of measures for the further electrification of handling equipment,
  2. Strategies for providing, handling and storing alternative fuel,
  3. Promotion of more environmentally friendly transport chains in the hinterland, with a focus on the development of combined transport.

At the end of January 2023, the three years project was officially launched with a partner meeting in Hamburg and the first working groups to implement the pilot applications and demonstrators were formed.
