Key objectives

DaGoB aims at improving the co-operations between public and private stakeholders related to dangerous goods (DG) transport in the Baltic Sea Region (BSR) by connecting the stakeholders on different levels, providing up-to-date information on cargo flows, supply chain efficiency and risks related to DG transport. Open here a short presentation about the project (PPT / PDF).

DaGoB will

Promote correct implementation of DG regulations among stakeholders
Search the information for better control of the DG supply chains
Provide a risk assessment in the DG supply chain by studying real life transport cases
Enable better information exchange between public and private sector stakeholders
Organise joint field and desk exercises to share valuable information in practice
Disseminate good practices and other produced information on local, national and also EU level
Provide the first Baltic Sea Region wide analyses and surveys of DG flows and accidents in the region

Project importance

In the Baltic Sea Region (BSR), over 1000 million tons of dangerous goods (DG) are transported every year.
Despite formal implementation, operational practices between DG-related authorities vary extensively between countries.
There is a vast need to improve exchange between DG authorities and the private sector.

Expected results

DaGoB will provide a useful tool for both national Ministries responsible for Transport, their units of DG transport and for Central Administration in Maritime, Rail and Road sub sectors.

The long term impacts comprise

the establishment of a BSR-wide survey of DG flows and accidents that can be updated in follow-up projects,
enabling better cross-border working contacts between DG authorities,
opening up ways for a better dialogue between DG authorities and private sector operators and industry associations and

consolidating the co-operation of research entities dealing with DG issues in the BSR.
