Mednet Project is a European project, co-financed by the MED Programme, which involves 18 partners in 9 different countries, aiming at simplifying and harmonizing maritime and port procedures within the Mediterranean region. The core activities of the project include the development and set-up of an Observatory of Ports Operation in the Mediterranean, as well as the implementation of selected pilot actions in partner ports, putting forward an “ideal virtual port” that all players and maritime stakeholders will be encouraged to draw best practices from. At the end of its lifetime, the Project will primarily recommend action and measures for facilitating maritime freight exchange, speeding up the goods supply chain and cutting down port logistic costs in the Mediterranean.
