The goal of Corridor as a Service is to improve goods logistics through digital services so that Finland can become a logistics hub for improving and expanding international commerce. At the moment, a preliminary assessment is being carried out to support the development of the CaaS concept. This assessment seeks to map out the operators and measures which have the potential for developing the speed, transparency, quality and cost efficiency of logistics.
Based on this preliminary assessment, a new operating model will be developed which is able to significantly improve the accessibility and attractiveness of Finnish logistics. For businesses, this offers opportunities for developing both currently existing and new forms of business activities, for improving transport operations and for networking.
“Finland has the opportunity to become an international hub for improvements to goods logistics. We promote an enabling environment and those measures which can lead to the creation of new digital services and business models”, explains the Finnish Transport Safety Agency’s Director General of Data and Knowledge Juha Kenraali.
Participating in the Corridor as a Service ecosystem from the public sector are the Finnish Transport Safety Agency, the Ministry of Transport and Communications, the Finnish Transport Agency, the Finnish Meteorological Institute, the Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority and Finnish Customs, as well as VTT from the research sector and Vediafi, Dynniq, Infotripla and Indagon from the business sector. Also cities Vantaa, Turku and Tampere are involved as well as the Growth Corridor Finland network and YTL ry.
