Businesses need a freight sector that can cope with future demand and adapt to the changes coming over the horizon, such as electric vehicles.
But we also need to tackle the congestion in our towns and cities, and the contribution freight makes to this.
The UK's National Infrastructure Commission study will review options to improve the existing infrastructure and recommend ways to use new technologies and processes to transform how freight moves by road and rail , in towns and cities,cross-country and into and out of ports and airports.
It will look at how new developments such as electric vehicles and biogas fuels can reduce carbon emissions, and how to manage the effects of congestion caused by freight movements.
This complements the ongoing work to deliver the country’s first-ever National Infrastructure Assessment . An interim report published in October identified the need to tackle the three Cs of congestion, capacity and carbon , and the Commission will consider how these issues affect freight as part of this new study.
SLE will post corporate updates in this section as they become finalised.
