Researches on mobility and transportation of freight and people are carried out with a view to sustainable development. Studies on Italian logistic systems, particularly in Northwest Italy, are financed with special funds supplied by Compagnia di San Paolo and supported by other public and private operators.
Among the many activities undertaken, also with reference to cross-border traffic, the project that proposes to turn Genoa port into a gateway port for container traffic travelling by sea to and from Northern Italy and Europe, has taken on strategic importance due to its supra-regional and European dimension.
SiTI has developed know-how in the field of transport analysis and construction of traffic models, also with reference to European projects such as the Corridor 24 Rotterdam-Genoa project.
