RIS COMEX

Based on the experience and results of its predecessor project CoRISMa, the new project called RIS COMEX (River Information Services Corridor Management Execution) is about to continue the pan-European expansion of River Information Services for inland navigation following the Corridor approach as developed within CoRISMa. The kick-off meeting took place on the 17th and 18th January in Berlin and reflected the special spirit of the new project, which is all about the future cooperation across many national borders, involving authorities and especially logistics stakeholders. The innovative approach of RIS COMEX is that 15 project partners from 13 countries will introduce jointly defined services on the following corridors: Danube, Rhine, Elbe, Moselle, Amsterdam-Antwerp-Liege, Amsterdam-Antwerp-Brussels and Dunquerke-Scheldt.

In order to develop a tailor concept for efficient corridor management, the CEF-funded project relies on the intensive exchange between RIS providers and users. The main focus of RIS COMEX is on the availability of reliable information on fairways, traffic and transport, harmonisation of data exchange, as well as existing transport information services, optimum use of the infrastructure, reduced administrative barriers and reporting burdens, optimum planning of transport routes and the support of the development of legal, financial and technical agreements in order to ensure the sustainable operation of the implemented Corridor Services even beyond the project end date (December 2020). By promoting improved information on the European waterways RIS COMEX will be a great move towards an efficient and reliable mode of transport in a multimodal setting – powered by RIS.
