Actions to improve coordination among freight transport stakeholders for increasing multimodal environmentally-friendly freight solutions will be supported.


All supported actions will clearly contribute to improving coordination among freight transport stakeholders, thereby increasing multimodal environmentally-friendly freight solutions which are also further fostering climate change mitigation in central Europe.

Art der Unterstützung

Non-repayable grants


Examples of actions supported are:

  • Developing and implementing coordinated strategies (including innovative financing and investment models) for strengthening the multimodality of environmentally-friendly freight transport systems (e.g. rail, river, or sea transport).
  • Developing and implementing coordination and collaboration mechanisms between multimodal freight transport actors.
  • Developing and implementing coordinated concepts, management tools and services aimed at increasing the share of environmentally friendly logistics through optimised freight transport chains (e.g. multimodal transnational freight transport flows).
  • Developing and testing coordinated strategies and concepts for “greening” the last mile of freight transport (e.g. logistics planning).


Within the supported actions different types of outputs can be obtained. Emphasis is put on policy learning and/or implementation-oriented approaches at transnational level. These can include the development and implementation of strategies and action plans, the development, testing and implementation of tools, the preparation of investments and leverage of funds, the implementation of pilot actions - including pilot investments - as well as capacity building also through training. If relevant, actions should link to the TEN-T core network corridor and the rail freight corridor initiatives in order to create positive synergies.

They include both public and private actors, such as providers and operators of freight transport and logistics services, commercial customers of freight transport systems, institutions planning and managing freight transport, infrastructure providers and other local or regional freight transport actors. Target groups include all population groups which are affected by the issue.

As a basic principle, the Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE Programme will mainly support cooperation activities between lead partners (LPs) and project partners (PPs) located in the eligible areas of the MSs (territory or parts of the territory of the nine CENTRAL EUROPE Member States (MSs) Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia). An exception to the rule with regard to the location of partners is the case of those national public authorities/bodies which are competent in their scope of action for certain parts of the eligible area but which are located outside of it (e.g. ministries). German and Italian institutions falling under this definition are to all effects assimilated, both in terms of rights and obligations, to partners located in the programme area.
