3.5.2 The EWTC KPIs

In relation to SGCI, the East-West Transport Corridor (EWTC) project has advanced the KPI selection in two important ways: Firstly, the term 'green' now combines all three sustainability dimensions (economic, environmental and social efficiency). Secondly, the grouping of indicators into operational and enabling ones, which was only touched upon by SGCI, has now been strengthened. Operational indicators aim at optimizing cargo flows in the short run with regard to their overall sustainability and address the perspectives of transportation service providers, shippers and the corridor managers. On the other hand, enabling indicators aim to optimize long term development of the corridor framework and are relevant to infrastructure managers, policy makers and the corridor managers.

The EWTC scheme of KPIs appears in Table 3.3. It needs to be mentioned that, unlike the operational ones, the enabling indicators are monitored through a corridor dashboard. The dashboard highlights the need to eliminate bottlenecks that may occur either within or outside the immediate corridor region.
