MoS 24  Project - ICT Based Co-modality Promotion Center for Integrating PP24 into Mediterranean MoS

Malta Freeport Terminals is one of the Beneficiaries and Implementing Bodies of MOS24. The action is a study, which takes the form of a Pilot Action.  Its main objective is to enhance the strategic role of the Priority Project 24 (Railway axis Lyon / Genoa-Basel - Duisburg - Rotterdam / Antwerp) of the TEN-T network, as main gate to Europe for the traffic of goods transported via the Mediterranean Motorways of the Sea (MedMos).

The main objective of MoS 24 is to create a ’unique ICT multimodal Corridor between Northern and Southern Europe’ by connecting virtually PP 24 with MedMoS. The Action is analysing the bi-directional transfer of goods from central Europe to Med Countries and to Med ports through the combination of PP24 and the network of MOS which interconnect to each-other through the Liguria - French Port system. The Pilot Action is developing the demonstrator of an interoperability platform (MoS24) for interconnecting existing ICT modules and making them interoperable. It will also deliver a service to users through the virtual MoS24 Co-modality Promotion Centre. MOS24 CPC aims at giving a significant example of multimodal ICT services offered to the transport community.

The action is being carried out in three main phases, namely

Phase 1: Analysis of the demand along the corridor
Phase 2: Review of existing subsystems and missing links followed by the development and testing of a middleware
Phase 3: The pilot demonstrator consisting of the virtual CPC for the Southern Gateway.


  • Activity 1
    Analysis of the context
  • Activity 2
    Interoperability and design of MoS 24 Platform
  • Activity 3
    Implementation of MoS 24 demonstrator
  • Activity 4
    Institutional validation, policy measures and Preliminary Master Plan
  • Activity 5
    Dissemination and Communication
  • Activity 6
    Project Management

The MoS24 Project will work closely with the MIELE Project, fostering synergies between the Med ICT Projects to avoid duplications whilst optimising the results. Moreover, it will still be possible to cooperate with other ICT and e-freight actions. Work on Activity 1 and Activity 2 have already been completed. In Activity 1, the market supply and demand, the existing ICT systems (and their differences) and all the current experiences of the Co-modality Promotion Centres and Short Sea Shipping were analysed whilst Activity 2 focused on the design of the MoS24 platform. The partners of the project are presently concentrating their resources on Activity 3. This activity is scheduled to be completed by 2013 and will involve the testing of the demonstrator of the MoS 24 platform.

Beneficiaries and Implementing Bodies

The following are the Beneficiaries and Implementing Bodies of  MOS 24, namely:


 Seminars / Steering Committees

In 2012, two seminars were organised, one in Alexandria by SLALA in Alexandria  in June and the other one in Malta by Malta Freeport Terminals in October. Such seminars offered an opportunity to present the MoS 24 Project to intermodal operators in two strategic areas. Furthermore, two Steering Committees were also held during the year, one in Nice in February and the second in October in Malta, in conjunction with the seminar.

In 2013, the first seminar is scheduled for next Spring and will be held in Rome. The seminar will be hosted by RAM (Rete Autostrade Mediterranee) in close collaboration with the Italian Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure. The next Steering Committee meeting will also be held in Rome. At the end of 2013, the presentation of the ‘MoS24 prototype demonstrator’ will be organised in Genoa.
