The ISTEN partnership gathered a few days ago in Thessaloniki for its 2nd meeting, hosted by CERTH/EKETA Hellenic Transport Institute.

Rainy weather welcomed ISTEN partners in Greece, where their representatives illustrated the work done so far, sharing opinions and discussing the first findings of context analyses conducted at local level on the state of the art of operations, governance and relations involving private and public actors in the logistics and intermodal sectors.

These technical deliverables reveal to be crucial in order to identify the main bottlenecks towards the local port-hinterland chains becoming integrated hubs. Together with methodological tools currently being prepared for the management of Local Working Groups and Action Plans, they will serve as a basis to engage stakeholders and experts in the activities planned for the upcoming months, headed towards the first meeting of the Transnational Cooperation Network.
