SUTRANET (Sustainable Transport Research & Development Network in the North Sea Region) is a project carried out under the European Commission's (EC's) Interreg IIIB North Sea Programme. The project commenced end-2004 and was completed mid-2007. The vision of SUTRANET is to improve the knowledge base for freight transport systems in the North Sea Region and for transport related policy decisions. The focus has been on transport networks and solutions serving unitised goods transport flows in the region. The assumption is that decisions based on a better understanding and awareness of this field could lead to improved efficiency and sustainability of the transport networks. The rationale behind SUTRANET is that this in turn will enhance regional development and interactions in the North Sea Region, in the form of a strengthened regional competitiveness within the EU and in the global economy, and resulting in more local income generation and employment.
