Leipzig – The International Transport Forum (ITF) wants to act as a catalyst for business action on climate change to show the full potential of carbon emissions reduction for the industry.

That is why the ITF has put together a number of action plans on how this can happen in practice. It has also identified areas where collaboration is needed in the industry. These include the use of sustainable fuels and implementing low carbon freight systems.

Another example would be to look at ways of avoiding trucks returning empty after delivery of goods.
