Overview
The Smart Freight Centre’s mission is to make the global freight and logistics sector more efficient, low carbon, and environmentally sustainable. Freight transport is growing rapidly, as commerce and trade increases, and its associated emissions with current technologies and fuels in trucks and ships contribute to climate change. The Centre will implement a global strategy that includes working with the private sector actors, shippers, and carriers in measuring emissions, incorporating technology innovation, improvements in logistics, and system efficiency to reduce carbon emissions. The Smart Freight Centre will continue to test its strategy in China and Europe and apply it globally.
