In order to strengthen environmentally-friendly multimodal transport in central Europe it is essential to start with developing harmonised mechanisms of cooperation among freight transport stakeholders.  The TalkNET project will improve coordination among stakeholders to foster the integration between ports and inland terminals and transport operators. Efficient management of terminals and last mile connections to enhance multimodal freight transport solutions will be in the focus. 

TalkNET will establish a transnational stakeholder network for freight transport. In addition, the project will optimise existing infrastructures by developing common solutions together with transport stakeholders.  The development and implementation of transnational strategies and action plans, tools, trainings and pilot actions will support investments on terminal management efficiency, new intermodal services, last mile connections and on the deployment of alternative fuels and energy efficiency solutions.
