Development areas according to the New TEDIM Strategy and projects:
1. Supply Chain Management (SCM)
The objective for the SCM development area is to improve the flow of supply chain processes through cooperation between public authorities and private companies. Projects in the SCM development area may for instance:
- help companies in the same SCM, business line, etc. to solve their common problems by cooperating with each other and public parties,
- be targeted at solving business-related logistics problems in a particular country or region through some form of cooperation.
TEDIM Projects: Daily Goods Services in the Baltics
2. Logistics Services
International logistics services and company networks can be created and developed in cooperation forums like TEDIM. Projects in the Logistics Services development may, for instance:
- improve preconditions for operations and services of logistics service companies in TEDIM countries by influencing the formulation of common rules and practises,
- improve preconditions for entrepreneurship in logistics and networking by entrepreneurs,
- educate logistics service providers in international cooperation,
- develop ICT tools for SME logistics service providers,
- improve networks between logistics centres and develop ICT tools.
TEDIM Projects: NeLoC and InLoC
3. Logistics Corridors
Modern information technology makes it possible to include different transport modes in a single transport chain. TEDIM offers a forum for developing international logistics corridors. Projects in the Logistics Corridors area may, for instance:
- be targeted at developing good, reliable railway connections between Asia and Europe,
- integrate new hinterland connections into the TEN Corridors, Baltic Sea Ports, etc,
- develop new railway-based connections and service packages through TEDIM countries,
- solve legal or technical problems along certain logistics corridors.
TEDIM Projects: PolCorridor, SLINT, Baltic Tangent, Baltic Tangent RUS
4. Logistics Information Management
Every new TEDIM project probably also includes some ICT (information and communication technology) development. But if the main focus and most development work really concern ICT, the projects could be handled in this specific Logistics Information Management development area. Projects may then, for instance:
- support infrastructure investments by developing ICT systems which streamline transports and material flow through physical routes (border-crossing, change of transport mode, Baltic Sea Motorways, etc.),
- increase the security and transparency of transports using ICT solutions,
- integrate the databases of public authorities and private companies, thereby avoiding the duplication of stored data and minimising the key-in work.
TEDIM Projects: RailCom Expansion, RailTrack TSR, InfoLogService, BaSIM and Baltic AIS Trial
5. Public Contribution and Participation
TEDIM encourages public and private parties to cooperate. Projects in the Public Management area may, for instance:
- simplify the exchange of logistics information between public authorities and private companies in both directions,
- develop international authorities’ databases and information systems, e.g. for the handling of dangerous goods, and at the same time simplify and unify companies’ data management in considaration of the substantial activities of the EU-Commission f. e. SafeSeaNet-Project under the framework of IDA (Interchange of Data Between Administration),
- support the growth of economic operations by means of the accurate timing and well-organised development of public information procedures,
- wake up the private sector to ongoing cooperation by supporting common development actions with seed money, and through seminars, educational actions, etc.
TEDIM projects: RailCust, EuroRussia, Decision Support, EuroRailKaliningrad, LogCom, Logistics Terminology and DaGoB++
