This study was commenced to find a taxonomy for corridors and their management structures. This work serves as a strategic pan-Nordic work to build an intermodal corridor between Finland and Sweden at the bottom of the Gulf of Bothnia. The Bothnian Green Logistic Corridor strategy included several studies, the corridor management structure analysis being one of them. Finding the right, working management structure for a corridor is the primary driver for this paper. Also the goal is to present the phasing of the corridor development work so that the management structure needed by managerial functions evolves along with corridor maturity. The most natural evolution paths for different corridor types will be proposed. The study is based on a literature review of previous research projects on corridors and selected corridor case studies: the Brenner Corridor, Pol-Corridor, and Bothnian Green Logistics Corridor.
