The STRING corridor is a vital section in the wider TEN-T's European transport corridor The Scandinavian - Mediterranean Transport Corridor. Results from the project have focused on the regional and
 environmental effects of an improved transport connection in the STRING region.


 The findings regarding the STRING Corridor Øresund - Hamburg are:

 
1.Action call to coordinate the future cross-border rail traffic from Øresund to Hamburg
2.The effects of a new transport geography for mobility, freight transport, regional labour markets and commuting
3.Potentials for greener and more efficient logistics solutions
