ECOLOGISTICS: TRANSPORT AND ENVIRONMENT IN UNISON

EKOLOGISTIK: TRANSPORT OCH MILJOE I SAMKLANG

The notion of 'ecologistics' implies, and portends, the vision of a future that will bring environment-friendlier transportation modes to the world, and a deeper understanding, among operators as well as patrons, of the transportation industry's damaging effects to environment. This report presents current and planned EU legislation, on-going research efforts in this field and the interested parties' views on the transportation-environment connection. Two Dutch projects of immediate relevance for reducing the negative effects on environment are discussed, along with a number of suggestions about possible action. No vehicle-technical alternatives are described: the focus of the report is on road freight transport.
