Background

Sustainable freight transport’ is an important issue nowadays bearing in mind that over the past 30 years overall freight transport doubled while road freight transport increased by a factor three and became the dominant transport mode. 

In the same time, railways continually lost not only market share but also transport volume, whereas inland waterways just maintained their volumes. 

 The negative impacts of this development became obvious and political opinion started to favor freight transport by environmental less harmful transport modes. However, this has not yet happened.
For this reason
T&E the European Federation for Transport and Environment advocates for sustainable transport and undertakes a project "Freight: From Road to Rail" to disseminate this idea.
