Logistics and Socioeconomic impact project of the Central Transpyrenean Crossing


Funding Body: Fundación Transpirenaica

Term: 2009-2010

Project Description

Given that the Central Corridor of the Pyrenees represents the 16th project of Trans-European transport networks in order of priority, several studies have been carried out with the aim of achieving its viability.

An analysis of these studies shows that none of them have been focused on the impact on logistics practices and logistics costs based on case studies at a company level so as to discuss innovative scenarios in the supply chain related to the Trans-Pyrenean Central Corridor. This impact research should consider two dimensions: a regional one on both sides of the Pyrenees, and a trans-Pyrenean European one of large territorial horizons (situating the Trans-Pyrenean Central Corridor in an extreme territorial context from Portugal to North Europe).

The main goal is to improve connections on both sides of the Pyrenees. For this purpose, the efficiency of building a Trans-Pyrenean Central Corridor is being studied. The business opportunities that will be available for companies on both sides if the Trans-Pyrenean Central Corridor infrastructure is built will be determined from a logistics and socioeconomic point of view.
