Food Port aimed to develop the North Sea Region as the best food cluster and hub in Europe for food products delivered via efficient and sustainable transport systems, e.g. ‘green transport corridors’. Food Port brought together local authorities, knowledge organisations, food industries and ports from five countries to find practical solutions to improve the efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability of the food supply chains.
The project investigated and developed green transport corridors for food products between regions around the North Sea. This led to concrete modal shift pilots along the identified green transport corridors and to the development of (new) food platforms or hubs. In order to improve the food logistic chains, new technological solutions were incorporated, such as a technical support platform.
