Sustainable Transport issues
A comprehensive solution is required
Sustainable freight transport can be identified as future-oriented and is task for the future. More roads represented no solution and leads to a rebound effect.
Smart, green and integrated transport solution should be the goal.
Today’s freight transport is not sustainable! Certain transport face important delays, that represent a barrier to transport and lead to economic losses and environmental load.
The European transport sector faces several challenges for which innovation may play an important role. The EU set a target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, in particular the transport sector needs to be decarbonized.
For the assessment of individual transport task, a special benchmark tool is needed which takes into account different aspects of transport scenarios. An indicator has been developed, which implements economic and sustainable criteria.
