Abstract

identifying the problems of the current transport system. This concern stands within the framework of the European Union for the optimization of door to door transport chains in Europe. In discovering and identifying the weaknesses of the current system, first there is a reference to the special character of the Greek market consisting of numerous islands. Data is included regarding the current transportation system, the fleets and the goods transferred and also the weaknesses and drawbacks observed in the current transport chain. Taking the above observations and the gathered data into consideration, the paper ends with some conclusions and brainstorming with regard to the redesign and reengineering of the system that will allow for a door to door supply chain in this sensitive region for the Greek economy.
