The main purpose of this document is to define a new optimised Mediterranean transport option serving as a reliable and efficient link between the eastern and western shores of the Mediterranean basin. A new transport option has been defined by proposing a new layout of the network structure and a new organization of the transport service in terms of itineraries, frequencies, vessels capacities, sailing speeds and service times. Moreover, since the ultimate goal was to define a new optimised transport option based on regular and scheduled services, the final output consists of a timetable indicating departure and arrival times for each service belonging to the new optimised transport network.
