OECD working group on High Capacity Transports (HCT): background, aim, activities and expected outcome

The new ITF/OECD working group is result of a Swedish initiative. After a workshop in Paris 17 April 2014 a minor task force was appointed to work out a draft Terms of Reference. Members of this task force were Chris Koniditsiotis, TCA, Australia, Paul Nordengen, CSIR, South Africa, David Cebon, Cambridge University, UK, and Jerker Sjögren, Lindholmen Science Park, Sweden (chair). The draft Terms of Reference were presented in July 2015 and a new workshop was held in Bordeaux 8 October 2015. An invitation letter signed by both the Swedish Transport Administration and OECD/ITF was sent out to the OECD member states inviting them to join the Swedish initiative and become paying members of the new working group. After that Australia, Denmark, Finland and Norway have decided to join Sweden in this “short cycle project”, which means that the participating countries together cover the costs.
