WEASTFLOWS

WEASTFLOWS: In freight movement West to East in Northwest Europe, there is an over-reliance on trucks. The idea behind this project, which is party funded by the European Commission, was to explore more sustainable modes of rail, short-sea shipping and river transportation. The project identified challenges and opportunities to improve freight flow and encourage more sustainable freight transport methods. The possibility of integrating ICT and telematics solutions into the supply chain was explored. Practical demonstration project are being undertaken in the participating countries, including France, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, the United Kingdom and China. Best practices and lessons learned through this project are being shared and will be used to encourage innovation and sustainable economic growth in the future.
