Tetraplan is heading a consortium comprising Ramböll Sweden (SE), Ramböll Finland Oy (FIN), ProgTrans AG Basel (CH), Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel (DE), Hamburg Port Consulting (DE), Centre for Maritime Studies at the University of Turku (FIN) and with the University of Gdansk (PL), Technical University of Denmark (DK), Vilnius Gediminas Technical University (LT) and Rapidis ApS (DK) as subcontractors.

The study aims at developing a joint awareness of the current transport system and its future challenges and potentials in the Baltic Sea Region. The study focuses on the supra-national level and covers a description of the current transport system in the region and forecasts for the years 2016 and 2030 for different development scenarios. The aim is to develop a Baltic Sea Region core network along the lines identified in the latest EU communications on the Trans European Transport Networks.
