Safe and Reliable Transport of Dangerous Goods in the Russian-EU Logistics Chain (DaGoRus) (DaGoRus)
Start date: Dec 31, 2006, End date: Dec 30, 2008 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Project importanceTransportation volumes in the Baltic Sea region have been growing significantly due to the rapid growth of the Russian and Baltic economies. Especially strong growth has been taken place with oil and chemical transportation.Increased transportation volumes may pose increased risks to health, people and environment. However, there is only limited information on the Dangerous Goods (DG) statistics generally in the BSR and especially in the transportation between EU and Russia.The cross-border transportation of DG also affects the risk for accidents and incidents due to the different handling practices, operational procedures, cultural differences and different documentation languages.The DG transportation chain must be seen as part of the whole intermodal transport chain, where the weakest link equals the total weakness of the chain. Thus institutional framework and harmonization is a key issue in this project. Achievements: The current practices and operational procedures in EU and Russia will be identified.Bottlenecks in the DG transport chain will be identified, thus giving the possibility to find out tools (risk control options) and new harmonized procedures to improve safety and reliability.The project will provide a risk assessment in the DG supply chain by studying real life transport cases.
