objective
3.1 Interoperability

RTF

The project makes real-time information about ferry delays, cancellations and travel time prognoses available to travel planning systems that cover different modes of transport. Real-time travel information is an immensely dynamic field – and ferry transportation is currently at risk of being left behind. The project sets up a collaborative data hub for real-time ferry information to be used for smoother transport of goods and people in the Baltic Sea region.
Project summary

Maritime key actors need ferry real time information

The Interreg project RTF fosters the utilisation of ferry real time information to optimise intermodal transport chains for goods and people in the Baltic Sea region. To achieve this, key actors from ship navigation, public transport and logistics and ports combine their efforts.

A new data-hub to collect, process and deploy ferry real time information

The RTF project sets up a collaborative Baltic Sea region ferry real time data hub. It provides a shared base infrastructure to collect, process and deploy ferry real time info along intermodal door-to-door transport chains across the entire region. A comprehensive toolset to generate all necessary base data for ferry real time information is created. It supplies ferry real time generators with field-tested and validated solutions to feed their data into the hub to connect this process to available systems. In addition to that, proficient market actors create intermodal model applications.They depict different, complementary use cases related to transportation of goods and people and test them as part of their regular services. A broad dialogue among further potential ferry real time generators and consumers, industry partners, multipliers and political stakeholders is set into motion.

Benefits for transport actors and millions of passengers

11 ferry real time demo lines start operating from 2019. The lines cover the prevailing ferry line types of the Baltic Sea region, they involve major ferry operators and demonstrate benefits for 18 million passengers, three million cars, 44,000 busses, and 850,000 trailers in each year. By the end of the project, there is a benefit to be expected for all relevant transport actors to generate and to utilise ferry real time information for optimising intermodal transport chains for both goods and people across the entire region.
