Video launched: Transporting freight better, smarter and more sustainably

Weastflows, the EU funded project that is looking at wider freight supply chains, has launched a video that highlights the pioneering work partners have been undertaking to help deliver smarter and more sustainable freight transport across North West Europe.

Through Weastflows, partners from private and public sectors, as well as researchers are undertaking a series of inter-connected activities and practical demonstration projects using innovative ICT solutions. This activity aims to identify challenges and opportunities to improve freight movement, and encourage greener supply chains across Europe and beyond.

Ian Short, Chief Executive at the Institute for Sustainability in the UK and Weastflows partner, said: “Latest EU figures show freight transport is increasing by 2.5% per annum*. This means more pressure on existing transport systems, more congestion and more pollution. Through smart solutions and real-time testing, Weastflows partners are working to improve freight journeys and show how a shift to more sustainable transport modes, including rail and sea, can help reduce environmental impact and maintain the region’s position as a global freight hub.”
