Intelligent parking and delivery areas
CO2 emission estimation and monitoring
Priority and Speed advice
The Trieste pilot site will implement CO-GISTICS services to support the daily operation of the Terminal Intermodale Fernetti. The terminal consists of 24.000 sqm of warehousing and 130.000 sqm of open space for parking/customs bond/storage yards and is directly connected to the railway station of Villa Opicina, authorised for inter-container traffic; the motorway to Venice (route to Italy – Switzerland – France – Spain); Treviso (route to Austria – Germany) and Ljubljana (route to Slovenia – Central Southern Europe).
Since June 2012, the whole truck flow (about 100.000 per year) leading to Turkey through the RO-RO shipping system from the port of Trieste, has been organised in such a way as to pass through Fernetti in order to alleviate the heavy city traffic. Such a new flow through Fernetti proposes interesting challenges that could be faced in the pilot case. In more recent times, the Fernetti terminal activated a RO-RO rail service to and from Salzburg including up to three scheduled departures a day in each direction. Beforehand, the same service originated from the Trieste port. Each train can carry up to twenty trucks.
Moving the terminal station from the port to the Fernetti terminal, besides speeding operations and shortening travel times, helped to alleviate congestion problems in the city and the port. This enhances the multi-modality aspect of Fernetti, and, at the same time, proposes opportunities to the pilot site in terms of coordination among different modalities.
All 5 CO-GISTICS services will be implemented in the Trieste pilot site. The Intelligent truck parking, Delivery areas and Multimodal cargo services will be implemented in the Fernetti dry port, where trucks arrive, stay parked until they receive the signal to be loaded (the truck and trailer or only the trailer), or in RO-RO ships in Trieste port, or in RO-RO trains direct to Salzburg. The Priority and speed advice service will be implemented along motorways from and to the Trieste port, in particular the sections operated by Autovie Venete S.p.A. The Eco-drive support and the CO2 emission estimation and monitoring services will be mainly implemented in the Autamarocchi (fleet operator) truck fleet.
