Very few projects deliver results that are directly implemented in the real world. The Interreg Central Baltic project EfficientFlow did just that. At the final conference the results were presented along with how the port solution is being deployed in many Finnish ports and the ship solution is put to use in Sweden.
How have the ports in Gävle and Rauma improved the information flow and how has this affected the overall efficiency? Would you like to have better information when planning a meeting with a large ship in narrow waters? Learn from the results of the EfficientFlow project!
The EfficientFlow project has finalised the activity regarding the ports. All actors in the ports of Gävle and Rauma are now using a Port Activity App to share real-time port call information. Port planning is even easier for ships with route exchange capabilities.
Port activity app is a digital solution to share information that will be implemented in port of Gävle during 2020. Gävle Hamn AB, the port authority, is at full speed to implement a test version with a small group of key partners.
